Stash

I have to admit that our ancestors got very creative when it came to hiding things.

Then we can flatten them Craig.”

“What did you’re treasure hunt uncover Craig?” Carla asked standing up and stretching. “Well, this one chest had a false bottom and held a stack of Francs in various denominations, and a gun. This other trunk had pictures and letters plus these silver and gold crosses.”

Craig bragged smiling. “What did you find in the photo frames Craig?” Carla asked when she saw Craig with a big smile. “Oh yeah, just these two, they had envelopes with big horse blanket dollars.”
