    About 4" deep in a field, bounced around a nickel signal. Stainless steel Oneida, just about perfect. Maybe someone else is detecting this field and has figured out a new technique for digging targets...

    Also found my 13th religious pendant in 2 weeks. Crazy! None are precious metal or particularly old, but all found in old wooded areas. Click image for larger version.

    Sorry about nothing great to share, but I just had to do a "tongs" post...

    Tongs...a must have for the serious barbeque or griller.
    NEVER cut meat or turn with a fork, all the juices will escape.

    Also nice religious medal.

    Nice find. When I saw title I thought someone had found a pair like I did when I put in a concrete patio. Mine was about 3' long and weighed about 20 pounds. Good luck.

    Lovin' the cleaned up and ready to roll TONGS! So cool to recover stuff we can put right back into circulation. I wonder if the person who lost that St. Christopher medal made it out of the woods alive?!?
