Oil leak

I have oil dripping out of the vent tube located on the drivers side of the block on my 223 6 cyl after a drive. Normal or what is the cause?

Are your drives hard, or just around the block a few times, and is it all oil, or condensation mixed with a few drops of oil? That would be the case if easy drives, if ist all oil, and quite abit, could be return holes stopped up in the valve lifter area.
