HayPatch, UT - Out they popped, in ones, twos and
threes! So far thirteen lambs have been born in the past several weeks.
Unfortunately, three of them died shortly after their birth.
The ten tough little lambs can currently be seen
jumping through snowdrifts while chasing their mums
toward the HayPatch watering troughs.

Gary, Ivan and Eric present at the TWAS
February 9, 2004 - Near
HayPatch, UT - Ivan, a bottle digger of great note,
and his friend Eric, a well-renowned token / occasional bottle hunter,
gave a presentation on bottle digging and collecting at the Trails West
Artifact Society (TWAS) monthly meeting in Ogden, UT.
They informed the audience about using probes, distinguishing the age of a
bottle by looking at the glass/mould lines and hinted at where others can
locate antique bottles, too.
While Ivan passed out bottles of various shapes, shades and ages to the
audience, "oooohs" and "aaaaahs" were heard throughout the school library.
These metal detecting enthusiasts were excited about the prospect of
someday finding old glass!!
TWAS a good time had by all!
