A hidden treasure?

Bill had to do some plumbing yesterday and opened a wall to access the pipes.  I was watching for water drips and noticed there was something hidden in the wall.  In the picture below you can see the cavity on the left.  It looked like a paper bag and had some weight to it.  I hoped it might be something like old magazines or artifacts.

Here it is after I pulled it out and took it outside.  Interesting stuff, huh?  Bill and I usually put something in the wall when we do any remodeling project, even just names and dates because WE would like to uncover something like that.

And it turned out to be . . .

. . . a chunk of drywall mud, hardened for 43 years.   LOL  What a disappointment!


  1. Man, I was hoping it was something more along the lines of wealth like a bag of money or old, rare, coins worth millions of dollars! Oh well! Maybe next time.
