We went metal detecting yesterday

It was a fun day. We picked out a beach off a lake thats tucked away out on a back road. We dug up a class ring that had the local school emblem on it. With in an hour I tracked down the gal and returned her ring to her. She said she lost it 2 years ago while helping the 4-H renovate the beach and put in picnic tables.
We took the detector out three times last week and found a total of 10.34 in coin.
Now today my knees are tender and my arms a bit sore but its a fun way to get back into shape from a long winter.
The ice is off the lake so now its time to get the boat out and pull out the fishing supplies and clean them up. Opener is in a month. YAY!
The chicken incubator is full, the garden is ready to plant, the greenhouse is sprouting new baby plants and the chickens are laying prolific.
We cleared an area for our rabit hutches and now I'm on a search for rabbits to start our Rabbit production.
Lets hope this coming week is as pleasant as last week. *grin*

A fella here in town dug up half the footbal field before he figured out there is a sprinkler system buried in it. That metal detecting can be a lot of fun though. I was shocked one year when my wife wanted one for Christmas. I got to buy her something practical that year. We were both pleased.

Its usefull too. Our old neighbor lady (86) still farms her place. She asked if we could walk a field for her because one of her implements (cant for the life of me think of its name right now) broke out there. She said to follow the furrows and we could see where the change in lines were. Sure enough.. a coupla acres later we could tell the difference and started swinging the detector. Found the top part (the most expensive) for her and she was very pleased not to have to fork out more money to fix her implement. This thing was about four inches down and HEAVY...sheeesh.. I felt like I was carrying a two year old across that field returning it to her.
