Sorry to hear that Larry. Correct me when I'm wrong, but when you went last time you hadn't been for several years, weren't you?

I know it won't help the disappointed feeling but better luck next time.

What are you looking for when you do get to go, what kind of relics? Have you been to any other digs?

That's like asking if flatulence will blow over in the forseeable future, Bats. I very much doubt it.
