I was showing Sam a porcelain baby figurine that was found while the excavation crew was digging a trench in our yard.
Sam: Why do you have that?
Me: The guys found it when they were digging our driveway, about three feet under ground.
Sam: That might be Egyptian.
Me: No, I don’t think it is Egyptian, but it might be from England and it is probably over 100 years old.
Sam: Well, the Egyptian people wrapped in bandages, that call themselves mummies, used to bury things.
Me: This is the United States and Egypt is on the other side of the world and I doubt there would be Egyptian artifacts buried in Oregon.
Sam: The mummies used to bury things really deep in the ground.
