Yes....this is an outhouse and the title is "buried treasure". Now, some of you will understand right away. And, now comes the explanation for those of you who have no idea what I am talking about. *LOL* This is a post for amusement purposes, and to make you smile.
My mother & I used to have a hobby of digging up old bottles. One of the best places, by far to dig were in and around old outhouses. Apparently....in the "old days" when plumbing was not available indoors, people used the outhouses. When they were done with the outhouse and sometimes even as they used them, they threw old bottles and glassware into them. I think that many people used to grab a quick drink while they were in there also, because there are always plenty of booze bottles to be found. Some are very rare.
Over many years...we have dug up thousands of dollars in buried treasure! The reason for this post today is because the ground has finally *almost* thawed in our area, and I can actually see some very old bottles poking out of the ground. I suppose it will soon be time for another treasure hunt. *smile*
Have a happy weekend.....Melanie
