Now that I have had surgery on both eyes I can get to my coulee to look for old fossils. Saturday late afternoon, Barry and his granddaughter, Bailey and I went to the coulee. The rain had washed down some big rocks off the side of the coulee. We found a few interesting rocks and another palm tree leaf in a rock. We used to see small seashells in the side of one of the banks. It is always interesting what a person can find.
