If you find gold or anything in a public would be yours for the keeping....why open your window?!

Maybe they don't need the money, seems like the father-son bonding means more to them than the gold itself. That's where the true wealth lies.

Dan is right. there is more to life than just money. money is here today and gone tomorrow. the father-son bonding will last a lifetime.i know my father and i had a lot of good times. now that he is gone i am not saying i wish that we had dun this or that. life is very short. enjoy the true things in life!!!!!

I've got nothing better to do so I guess I'll hop on a Greyhound bus and head west. Wish me luck and I hope I don't lose my head along the way. If I find gold, drinks are on me.
