Archeology, Near and Far

October 18

Today just inside the SW ranch gate I found a dried-out old Pink Pearl eraser and not far from it, a broken but beautifully-flaked pink arrowhead (as well as a horse shoe and a rusted top from a baking powder can. How long has it been since baking powder was 25 cents?)

Found baking powder lid, graphite rubbing

It says “25 CTS/KC BAKING POWDER/25 CTS/SATISFACTION GUARENTEED”

(And how long has it been since they stopped putting the cents sign on keyboards?)
