The hubs job takes him all over Oklahoma and parts of Southern Kansas.
Awhile back, he was at a work location (Im keeping it a secret but it was in OK) and he came across what appeared to be ‘shark teeth’.
Since he was working, he did not have much time to look for more. He asked the land’s owner if he (the hubs) could come back when he was not working and look for more. The landowner said sure, he was not interested in fossils, only the fossil fuel from his lands.
I sent the above photo off to a Paleo guy who is very interested in the tooth. The Paleo guy said it was most likely a shark tooth and is taking the photo in 2 weeks to a convention to show experts. He also offered to purchase it and more if we would like to sell them.
Sell them? My answer is Hell yeah! I can foresee my new horse fund multiplying!!
But, the hubs isnt so enthusiastic. Howard, being the detailed, law-abiding citizen that he is, is studying the fossil collecting laws in the USA to make sure he is in accordance. Howard wants to make sure it is okay to sell/keep the fossils before making a decision.
WTF? Howard harvests fossil fuels for a living, it is our livelihood-he’s worried about a few prehistoric shark teeth? Needless to say, I had to bite my tongue and not get into a huge debate over this whole thing….
My luck, I’d sell the teeth, get busted by some undercover Federal Agent, then find myself doing 10-20 in McAlester Maximum Security Prison. But the upside of that, Wee One would get into preschool.
I’m rambling, changing the subject now.
I received this award from my fellow Okie and blogger, Kel from BusyBusyMommy.
Kel is one busy woman too, I read her blog and she always has some good ideas. Also, I do not think I have ever seen a more organized person. I wish I was more like her!
I am quite flattered because, I am not that nice but some one seems to think so.
Thank you Kel!
This week is the Free Fair. Wee One and I went last year and had a blast. I am planning on taking him Friday afternoon. We have friends who are going to be up there with their horses and livestock.
Bubba’s first game is at home tomorrow evening. Since he’s 8th grade, we are the last to play. Oh well, I am looking forward to it. Wish us luck!
Oh, and guess what his 2 favorite classes are? History and Algebra…..ick (but I keep that part to myself).
