Buried Treasure
by Michael Webb
http://www.TheRomantic.com

It’s been about 20 years since I got together with a group of
neighborhood kids to create a time capsule.  To be honest, I don’t
remember what’s in it, but I do remember exactly where we buried it.
It was on top of a 4 foot hill in the Scheer’s backyard, just two
doors down from where my mom still lives.

The Scheer’s no longer live there but each time I visit home I keep
meaning to ask the new neighbors down the street if I can go dig in
their yard.  It sure would be exciting to unearth the box and look to
see what items we decided to contribute 20 years ago.  I imagine I
would get a good laugh at what we thought was interesting or “cool”
two decades ago.  I am sure it would bring back lots of fond memories
too.

It’s never too late to create your own time capsule, whether you’re
20, 40, 60, 80 or 100 (though a Centenarian might be pushing it a
little).  I think it would be interesting if couples would bury a
capsule right before their wedding and dig it up on their 25th
anniversary.  You could include a newspaper from the day you were
married as well as many other mementos.  Or bury it in the backyard of
the first house you buy and wait a decade or so before you dig it up.

One very important element would be the map.  No matter how good your
memory is now, it is not guaranteed to be reliable in the future.  You
can create the map in the “pirate’s treasure” style or just an
ordinary plotting map would be effective too.  Come to think of it, I
hope that hill in the Scheer’s back yard is still there.  Of course,
as a short ten-year-old, an ant pile might be considered a hill.  We
should have drawn a map.
