Okay, I confess, so many areas to dig & as much as I'd like to hit them all in one day, I couldn't take myself away from this particular one. I felt like a little kid in a candy store & yes, my ADD kicked in & I was all over the place. Yesterday was my birthday, so to myself I gave myself the entire day to "just dig"! I dug until I couldn't see. 😁😎
So the first pic is another foundation, I dug above it & around it. There is also 4 other foundations on the same piece of property, all hold a lot of promises. It looks as though it was a small town at one time, that obviously time forgot? The homes that once were are no longer, any digger would love it! Can anyone tell me what that silver piece is/was, it says "sterling" on it, at first I thought a fancy tip for a ladies cigarette? But when I cleaned it, a small glass sphere of sort was inside it, pics posted. Hopefully the pics are clear. I'll be loading my wheeler up & spending the weekend in the wood's so I'll be checking out a few more places. 😊😊
