"I tried once to open too many doors at a time, it was unproductive and confusing.
I just learned the last lesson, Dad. I'm supposed to open just one at a time, and only when I reach them along the path, this 'hike' we are taking. That's when the key fits, and opens the lock perfectly, every time. Thank you, Dad. I love you, and miss you. I am blessed with an amazing husband now, he holds my hand as we walk along paths too. We are climbing a little steeper now, with more effort, and thinner air. But I'm not worried. I am looking up. I am living in the moment, being now. Because when we get to the next door, along our path, I know, Dad, . . . that key is going to fit, perfectly!"

'Hoo' wants to go fossil hunting?

Mr. Ken and friends hit the creek again, this time under a pair watchful mother's eyes! (she really was napping~it's tough being a mom!) How fitting for two days after Mother's Day!

This Barred Mother Owl was cool and calm, nearly bored by the fossil hunters. Her youngster nearby had an eye popping expression of intrigue at three guys digging in the creek! Beautiful birds!

Veteran fossil hunter, Kyle, pulled a mammoth tooth out of a bank like a cookie from a jar! This hunter has the 'Midas Touch' lately! Great job, Kyle!

First time fossil hunter Eray unearthed a generous amount of various shark teeth and turtle shell fossils. He even scored a horse tooth! Welcome aboard, Eray! He promises to be back with friends.

Mr. Ken did some delicate sifting to find a coyote tooth. He also discovered a partial deer antler!

All finds were approved by the lazy lizard, also taking in the trio's activity!

Great day, guys! Keep the fun and pics coming~

Wow, are they shark teeth?

Thank you, Rich! Rockman can hunt fossils and snap great pics too!

Yes, jc1000000! Some of the fossils found are shark teeth, a coyote tooth fossil by the coin, fossilized deer antler above that, and pic below owls is a mammoth tooth fossil. Beautiful specimens were found that day!

It is steady work to include digging and sifting in the creek bed after a mile or so walk through the wilds of Florida, but these fossil hunters are up for the challenge in search of these bits of history. If you are ever in our area, Mr. Ken offers tours~

Thank you both for your read and the comments!

See some of the beautiful sculptures Rockman creates out of the shark tooth fossils at:

Do you have fossil hunting in your area?

Sounds brilliant! Can anyone go and do that? On that link, I can't believe how big some of the teeth are! How period would the fossils be from?

Hi jc1000000, Yes, Mr. Ken takes out folks for excursions during fossil season. Right now Florida is in its 'rainy season' and the fossil hunting conditions are probably going to have to wait until October. I'm told the season is October to May or June. Alligators are more prevalent in deeper water too. The fossils are beautiful, aren't they? Mr Ken tells me the fossils are from the Mycenaean period. Check out his website to get more stories of previous fossil hunting trips with Fossil Recovery Expedition. Let us know if you would like to try an expedition. Once you get bit by the 'fossil bug', i hear that you are hooked! Thanx, jc, for the comment and read! :)
