According to a family spokesperson,
Shady Dell owner John Ettline
did not particularly like banks.
Acting on his inherent mistrust of financial institutions, John reportedly filled empty paint cans with quarters and buried them somewhere on the Dell property! Safer than playing the stock market, right John?
This startling revelation raises the obvious questions.
How many cans
How many coins?
Where did John bury the loot?
Was it all hidden in one spot?
Or was it planted at various locations around the Dell grounds?
Did John or anybody else ever get around to digging up
the coin filled cans?
Anybody think to check the mattresses?
or is it still
up for grabs?
Just out of curiosity, was there ever any mention of gold doubloons and pieces of eight, a king's ransom, a fortune
in diamonds or anything of that sort?
No? Just thought I'd ask. (Dang!)
Uh, pardon me, kind sir.
Did I hear you say something about............. treasure?
It's under duh big W!
Dat's where you'll find it!
Dere's dis great big W, ya see?
and duh dough's buried right
It's under duh big W I tell ya!
Have a Shady day!
