    Dont have to find to enjoy

    I have been finding it difficult to *want*
    to go out this year. Some of it is the cold
    but mostly, I'm just not enjoying as much.

    I'm sure that a few warm days may change my
    perspective.

    Today, I made myself go for a walk. I told
    myself it was just to get my "fix". but,
    ya know, I really enjoyed myself! I swung for
    about 4 hours in a farm field, finding next to
    nothing and not caring a bit! The ground was a
    bit frozen in places but some was ok.

    I really found next to nothing but a couple things
    did make me smile.

    Here's my booty:

    A complete Presto lid

    This brass piece is very solid but it's
    broken off of something.

    There is a design and some lettering etched
    into this piece. Any ideas on how I might
    clean to see them better?

    I know what you mean. I find detecting totally centering. It's the only time in my day where I am totally in the moment. No extraneous fluff floating around in my head.

    the old canning lids are zinc and if you have a woodstove you can toss them in , zinc is what they burn to help keep the creosote down FREE chiminy cleaner....!

    Its great you got out and enjoyed yourself. Sometimes we just need to take the kid in us out to play.

    A rugger, hmm....maybe it had something to do with the feather being there.
    Pheasant or maybe a hawk.

    Not sure about what the brass piece broke off of, maybe trim of some kind. Hope you find a way to clean it so the detail appears.

    Blingie needs his beauty sleep.
    Fishy is off and flying....if you get him another feather.


    That is some very interesting info about zinc being a creosote cleaner....i have a jar full of zinc cent cores that the copper is gone from....and a wood stove!
    Ta da!
    What you learn on here is a gold mind of information.

    I've always said, one of the absolute worst Christmas gifts is a metal detector. At least, up north.

    Be careful throwing zincolns in a stove. They aren't *just* zinc. Might want to check to see what gasses the other metals might give off. Never know.
