|South Dakota Agate Collecting - Part 2
May 17th, Sunday
and began gathering our rock hounding accessories, Jane was scratching around by the vehicles and
wal-la! There she was, a pretty little Fairburn. I suppose the Supreme beings heard her yawp
yesterday and thought they should bestow a treasure. LOL...
It's very nice out today. Sunny and warm with a little breeze. All is well in the world of bluffs! All
of us wondering around like we know where were goin'. It wasn't long before a little excitement. A
Fairburn you ask! NOT! It's was a army medi-vac whirlybird that flew in over our heads and
began circling. It was kinda cool as they waved when they past just above us. Didn't think too
much about it, until they kept circling, and circling, and circling. My next thought was, they were
looking for someone. Who could it be! Cindy? She had been playing with her walkie talkie. It was
stuck on a channel or something, neither her or I could figure it out even with all the button
pushing. For all we knew Cindy could have called them out using a super secret code or something.
After all there was a little satellite thingy flashing on the walkie talkie. Well not to worry Cindy, I
wouldn't have ratted you out. During the interrogation I would have said what my hero Colonel
Klink always said, I KNOW NOTHING! I wouldn't have told them you were hiding over the bluff
and down the wash!
It was just past noon and most all of us in our party made it back to the vehicles about the time the
thing lands out in the field by us. 2 GI Joes jump out, and it took off and began circling again. For
about an hour they played in a big circle, back and forth dropping flour bombs at there targets. We
took some photo's, ate lunch, and watched for awhile. With there last pass, they waved, we waved and
Cindy is still with us!
