AT, nice job sniffing out the good stuff....or should I say "smelling" out
Thanks Buellride!! I didnít mention it in my original post, but I originally planned to go to a different park to hunt, but changed my mind as I left my neighborhood...so I guess that makes this park my ď#2Ē choice

Is this a Fairgrounds site? Did he eat some food on a stick from a opossum street meat vendor? Or deep fried butter sticks or sumpthin? WTH happened for this poor guy to lose a Bar-B-Q at the base of this tree?

I know folks lose all sorts of stuff in the process of offloading colonic dunnage...sometimes in a uncontrollable hurry...remarkable that the ancient and modern dumpage sites are in such tight parameters...

Humans are funny?...certain bodily functions simply cannot be ignored or delayed...Like when GHWB puked into the lap of the Japanese President?...Its like hey, WTH did you expect? You are the one who made me eat this raw squid...Here you go Buddy! Take this home and feed it to your cats! You got off easy!...I coulda let it fly from the other end crapspackle.....


Thanks Mud!! I had the image of a dapper, late 19th century guy associated with dropping this coin - except now heís crouched behind this tree with his breeches around his ankles, pinching one off, wondering how many leaves heíll need to gather to clean up enough that he wonít be drawing flies away from the horse-drawn buggies and wagons on the rest of the walk home, knowing there ainít no amount of nonchalant whistling thatíll cover up any leftover stench during that walk of shame!

Now when I look at that coin, I canít unsee that mental image!!



And I have almost no doubt youíre right...coincidence that the port-o-johns are in the same spot?? I think not!!

Thanks Soil!! You know, itís funny...the park itself was literally deserted, but those port-o-pots were seeing fairly regular use when I was hunting the other section of the park from folks stopping off the road that ran past the park. But once I moved to the area behind the pots, not a soul stopped the entire time! Amazing how much of a deterrent it can be when some guy is swinging a ďGeiger counterĒ behind the latrine...suddenly everyone could ďhold itĒ for the extra mile or two to get home
