Iowa family finds prehistoric mammoth femur in their backyard
A backyard in Iowa has become an excavation site after a family went blackberry-picking behind their house two years ago and came back with a prehistoric mammoth femur.
A man identified only as John discovered the bone when one of his sons saw what he believed to be a ball while walking in the forest behind their property in 2010, according to Des Moines’ ABC5-WOI.

Many bones have surfaced for discovery since 2003 UFO sightings and other.
My girls and I do light escavating in the local arboretum and have found teeth and pre historic bird bones.
Holes with glowing yellow lights, but no water or bottom
Yellow alien things (US AIRFOCE probably) They have to take a drug similar to liquad acid to be able to feel normal traveling speed of light and sound.
A squrriel by a church, UW tried to petition nation that is was a rat squrriel hybird that has been xtinct since before pre history. All lies to really funding. City of Madison picked the squrriel up at my home, broken shredded tail from animal attack.
The bone, not worth anything, get a infomraitonal interview with Sale and MArketing of a Major Bank, they will bargain for a Student project with it. Unless it is better then any specimen on the planet or the 1st found here in better condition to upgrade vaults.
California and forensic students parents will by it for their projects.

Jaimie, I beg you
To always write your posts
In verse form.
I feel the power of your voice,
The lilt of your ideas,
The faculty of your observation,
The gift of your sight,
Too weakly, for that paragraph.
So write, friend,
In verse, friend,
And so, friend,
more can see as I see;
You have the Power,
Use it, and give it.

Not a writer. No desire. Picking specimans for $ for reserch. For $ for my childrens findings, as a single mom everything must be worth something.
Photos of Abraska readings. And movie ideas. I have a series of some photos of a locations that makes Lord of the rings chump change form the potential of this stump site. All the players are inscribed in the reading on the stump, I even caught a leprichan or little man in the photo holding a gold bag. We spoke in a dream, he was embarressed by my size and that to his size the gold looked alot, I said it still is, UW has a maximum sizer technology in Wisconsin so can produce the size over 1000 times.
I had fun reading your creative post although. I am not creative analogies or metaphoricaly articulate, I grunt fart and point an dget dirty digging up the source. Real non attractive non femanine trades, that is why Im the single mom at 43.
It doesnt hurt my feelings UW and the MAyro steal my findings all the time and claim them as their victory and make US TREASURY pay them for additional research. I refuse to play their source forever Ill have to take on a bank owners nephew to market my finds soon.
