Virginia Fell of Chumuckla / Pensacola has acquired a strange bone artifact which might even be a fossil from a friend in Gadsden, AL. It is said to have been dug up by a dog after some food scraps were thrown nearby. I am at a loss to figure out what animal this came from.
I hope you will share this post with people who may have better insight. Perhaps a professor of paleontology or biology? Thanks. Virginia has posted these items on Facebook and that may be the best way to reach her. Or - email me for more contact information. email@example.com.

Navy Corpsmen of the Marine 4th FSSG 4th Medical Bn group at Dr Tom Birdwells 87th birthday. Doctor B. Was drafted in the marines out of college in 1950 and initially trained in the Navy SNJ in flight school but opted out after phase two. The Navy then put him through medical school and a career followed, which included the Navy Corpsmen here (including my brother, Jim Campbell) A magnificent conversation graced the event. I am glad they let this "tin can sailor" join the celebration. Buddy, checked shirt front, still carries a globe and anchor tie clip Dr. Birdwell gave him years ago. Chief, John (front right), received his marine cap after this photo. Thank you, Tom and Judy for a wonderful memory on Pensacola Bay. I've invited them all to my ship reunion in Pensacola Oct. 7. VETERANS Park and McGuires for lunch. You are welcome too!Www.ussocallahan.org— with Buddy Hamilton andJim Campbell.

|Raymond Johns - Author|
Sold it to a man who is dragging logs out of the river but he needed a truck. I helped him find a truck which promptly broke six times in two months. So I found him another truck for trade by way of a man named Freeman Simpson. Freeman has a buddy named Raymond Johns who is a budding author with few resources to reach his market.
|A letter from President G.W. Bush|
THIS means the boat purchase from the recommendation of the daughter of the man who told me about the glass tektite meteorite from Barnetts Crossroads in 1967 has led to this moment of helping Mr. Johns get his books into print or electronic media without any cost to himself. My suggestion is to use Createspace.com (Amazon) or Lulu.com (independent).
These places on the web make book publishing easy and actually NO cost to the author until the books start to sell --- at which time a percentage goes to those companies.
|A Beginner Reading Book|
Among the Mr. John's hobbies is the practice of writing to Presidents of the United States or to other government leaders to offer them encouragement. He has letters in return from George W. Bush and Barack Obama among other government leaders. I have suggested he can create a book from his correspondence to and from those leaders and probably find an interested audience. We are going to look into that. I may help him scan the material. And I am going to show him how to set up a blog like this one - or my In Country with Uncle Vic Blog where he can write to his heart's content and get the word out about his various projects.
|Coloring Book with Nutrition|
The man is multi-talented. Other hobbies include the making of metal sculptures from scrap material and he collects a wide variety of art - some of it originals - some of it that might find interested buyers on the internet. So --- for want of a boat --- I am now involved in ONE MORE project. I'll be back over at the Perdido River today to see how the RIVER LOGGER is doing.
