    Hello y'all, my name is Raoul Albert Simpson 2. I'm 35 years old and from Arkansas. Haven't done much with my life that accounts for much other then what I've done in my effort to preserve history. To start with we have nothing but flat lands around these parts that are planted and harvested annually. So when the fields get plowed and the first rains come down you could always count on finding yourself an Arrowhead or other artifact if you would bother to look. The first time I became aware of the fact that I was holding something in my hand that connected me with the last person that did. Sometimes spanning thousands of years. I was hooked. I love doing my part to learn and preserve as much as I can. Oh I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with classic director's but in case any of you where wondering how an Arkansas hick ended up with a name as fancy as mine. Well it was because my great aunt Mary married a man by the name of Raoul Albert Walsh. He was a director of many movies and was responsible for John Wayne being called John Wayne. I never meet him but my father did. I have never been good at this type of thing. Over ad out
