    unknown roadside Picnic area today

    couldn't settle on a spot today so I decided to follow my nose.

    while driving I remembered a roadside pavilion I just found the owner to last saturday,
    but he wasn't home, so I drove by today & got Permission.

    while detecting there was a guy mowing grass in the game preserve,
    I purposely let him see me & I waved with my digger, and he gave me a weird look,
    later I see him on my side of the fence coming towards me & he stops on his mower & asks

    What's your name ?
    I had my headphones on & Pretended I Didn't hear & asked Huh ?

    He repeated "What's your Name ? " so I told him who I was & where I was from.

    he then asked "Do you know where you are ? "

    I said "Yea Gettin' hot "

    He gave me a confused look, so I decided to let him off the hook,
    & said Yea I was over at the saw mill & Got permission

    He then started taking about all the glass, & trash & said he thinks it was a dump,
    but while mowing grass one day he found a small rubber purse with a buffalo & wheats in it.
    and asked If I wanted him to mow that area for me. So I said yes, took a break till he mowed &
    did that yet.

    Still not anything worthwhile, Left with this pin or Belt buckle
    as my only cool find ?

    Yeah, can't tell you how many times I am in a park and someone starts the lawnmower up.
    I just walk to the other side of the park.

    I like the brooch. Are the stones real? I found one similar to yours a couple weeks ago. Not quite as fancy as yours.

    I can relate to those types of places where it looks like they brought in fill dirt from the towm dump, I would probably hit it again anyway.... at least once more.

    No idea on the stones, they appear to have a shiny coating on them,
    that is cracking & coming off.
    they are dull under the coating.

    My Macro abilities don't help
