Diggers Treasures....

Back in the mid 60's, my friend Madelines  husband Pat, better known  to you as Snapper II used to go out in the woods and dig for old bottles. He gave me 3  bottles and the rest I found myself
A man goes to the doctor and tells him that he hasn't been feeling well.
 
The doctor examines him, leaves the room and comes back with three different bottles of pills. The doctor says, "Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you get up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water."
 
Startled to be put on so much medicine the man stammers, "Jeez doc, exactly what's my problem?"
 
                                    The Doctor says,

"You're not drinking enough water."

Of course you must know that I have bottles in my kitchen, too!! I love yours. Did you dig them up?? How on earth would you even go about that?? You can't just go in the woods and start randomly digging....My favorite is the two amber bottles, divine!!! And look at the reflection on the shelf of the one!!!!!

Old bottles are interesting glass. Up in Jerome, Arizona I bought a necklace one year that has been made out of old wine bottles of the past. Or so they said when I was there. Maybe that was just to get me to buy it. It worked.

Your bottles are pretty..I have a few old ones I picked up over the years as well. I enjoy them too. I think there is some logic in here- you need to drink lots of water if you take any pills! (Grin)- seriously. Well, I hope everything simmers down and you don't lose too many tomatoes! Well at least they aren't much trouble to get started again. Stay safe..the weekend is close by~
