Look Wut The Dawg Dug Up

Making my backyard rounds this morning (to “scoopa da poopa” as I call it) before my carpool arrived to pick me up I found that Ranger in her infinite excavationability has potentially uncovered beneath the hammock stand a new trove of trinket treasure. Here’s the tip of the iceberg  craptastically captured on my phonecam (click quadruplicate):


In the upper right is yet another brown glass vial to add to the collection of small bottles recovered. In the center is a small and surprisingly intact saucer decorated with some sort of flora (grapes?) that was perhaps once a part of a child’s tea service  (on the bottom of the plate it reads “Made In Japan”). And not intact is a small piece of ceramic in the shape of a dog’s head.  Perhaps the rest of the canine’s body is interred nearby. We shall see.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
