Lesley reports that mice broke into her shed and ate all of the stored Inverloch supplies. They especially liked the toilet paper. Apparently, they ate all of the tinfoil off some leftover chocolate eggs, but left the chocolate behind. Which does beg the question - how on earth did we manage to have leftover chocolate at the end of a dig?
We have discussed some likely dig dates for the 2011/12 Field Season.
- Field Report day in mid October (maybe the 16th)
- Training day at Flat Rocks early November (maybe the 6th)
- Flat Rocks dig 3 weeks in February (maybe starting the 11th since that gives us the best tides)
- Eric the Crayfish dig 10 days in late March (maybe the 24th but we'll need to check with Bimbi)
