My new book venture is a collection of short stories concerning Bottle Mining Adventures. Gert and Nina, friends for many years, now share a common passion - bottle mining. Nina is a homemaker and a widow. Gert, a spinster, had spent productive years as a beloved schoolteacher who started her career in a one-room schoolhouse and ended with her retirement at a district high school. Now, with those early responsibilities gone, the two women have time to search for antique bottles in old, abandoned dumps. They meet an eclectic variety of characters as they trade-off collectibles and sell old bottles at flea markets.
Stories include, The Crazy Jug, The Pink Victorian Lady, The Rescue, Hikers and Bottle Miners, The Conjurer, The Willowbrook Inn, The Wedding Reception*, A Catty Arrangement*, and Not Suitable Viewing For Children*.
