Not yet. Amidst the pile of broken glass and tetanus, there were a few interesting looking chunks of metal that I can't figure out what they are. Some forks. A geode. A tiny plastic dog balancing a ball on it's nose and a tiny plastic knight figure. Several chunks of bone, looks to be from a pig or a cow. Perhaps discovering this will eventually lead to something useful though. Or at least, interesting.

There is a larger hole towards the front...maybe if I just keep digging...Ah well, one has to be careful with portals anyway. Probably too much responsibility right now. I wouldn't dream of doing such a thing without knowing where my towel was.

Alas, less romantic, as you dig down, you may find an old bit of electrical wire. My guess is that there was an electrical lamp post installed there.
It's about 20 or 30 feet from the house. Interesting.

There is some history about the place that might tie in with this. It might even lead to solving a mystery we've wondered about for some time. Good idea with the metal detector! Our neighbor has offered to lend us one for investigating such things. Might be time to take him up on it!

Hope there's treasure at the other end (and not a meth lab or something)!
You would be much easier to understand if you took that bucket off of your head. And that goes for the tiny ad too!
