The other day I hung an old horse shoe I found in the V of a young mesquite.
Maybe someday someone will find it with the tree growing around it and post on here.

Hog hunting down on the Briscoe Catarina a few years ago I found a purple pair of women's panties laying on the open ground miles from nowhere. No body, just the panties. Often wondered what they would say if they could talk. Wouldn't matter I guess since I don't understand spanish.

Found one of these just sitting on a stump about a mile deep in the woods last weekend. It looked brand new.

Lol. A stuffed animal version of this. I brought it home for my daughter. I left behind the real deal and a sock.

My buddy and I were at our bow lease and we smelled something rotting near the gate. Had a weird sickening "sweet" tinge to it. We figured it was just roadkill. This old guy metal detecting the ditch fifty yards from the gate found a decapitated body a few days later. A hooker's head was a few feet away from the body. Don't think they ever found the person who did it.

I've found a bunch of chimneys, shacks, wagon roads, arrow heads, old pots/pans. I came close to finding that body, happy I didn't the smell was awful.

I found a small sanstone ball about the size of a golf ball on our place by Pleasanton. Being a kid, I broke it with a hammer and it was full of loose sand. In the loose sand was a shark toothe about 2 mm long. I don't have it anymore, though. The house we lived in burned to the ground.

Also in P-town I found a limp helium balloon with a note attached that was set adrift by a elementary school class several hundred miles away (don't remember where they were from). We wrote them & let them know the balloon was found.

I also found a similar item on the beach of San Jose Island (St Joseph's) while working cattle, but it was a bottle full of notes from school kids. Being horseback & gathering steers, I set it under a windmill to retrieve later. I never did go back. It may or may not still be there.

Back in 3rd-4th grade...had to be in the mid 70's the elementary school I went to, Ashbel Smith Elementary in Baytown celebrated their 50th or 75th anniversary by having all of the students fill out a card with their manes and address and attach them to a balloon and set them loose with hopes that whoever found them would write back to let us know how far they had traveled. Don't remember many details of where many ended up but I remember getting a letter back that mine made it to Green River Wyoming Ö.or something similar

When day leasing on a place in Sabinal, TX. we went into the land owners house to talk to him. He had a bony bear pelvis incased in glass with a flint broadhead burried half way into the bone. It seems some Indian tried to take the ol' Texas Heart Shot but was a little to the right. Awesome find by him!

Feeding my mom's cats one morning saw this sitting in here pasture about 200 yards from her house. Found out later an emergency landing for the guys training out of camp Bowie. Engine fire forced it down.
