Happy Birthday to you all down there in the Stars and Stripes.

Today is my dry day-July 4th-I gave up the rum 37yrs ago.(Best day of my life actually)
So after working with the excavator for the past 30 days-I'm going to play in the dirt.

The Mrs said: Arn't you even going to wait till they pick up the machine?
" Nope-they don't need me to load it-just going to top up the fuel and leave the key in it"
"You're probably going to be too tired to dig tomorrow "
🤣-Me? Ppphhhttt!
(Even if I am-I'd never admit it)

Now where to go?

All the permissions are planted-most of the fields aren't cut of hay even this year.

Oh I think I'll go to a permission that has a dump in the bush, and dig some glass.
On the top it has some old advertising tins (still readable actually)
Saw some soda pops from the early 60's.
It's all too new for my liking, but it might get older further down in the dump.
The land owner told me about it years ago.
The lay of the land it made for a good dump. Little raised bluff, then a 20ft rock cliff to bush below.

So I'll put on the bug proofing net hat (bee keeper) and go dig in the shade of the forest.
I dug broken glass and pottery on the other side of the rock knoll dating back into the mid 1800s so the old is near.
Looking at the lay of the land and the dump pile, it's probably 4-5 ft deep at least.
Little of everything it looks like, even page wire fencing thrown on top-just to make life interesting.

So the detector is charged, scratcher and shovel are loaded. That's the plan, for this day, is to scratch an itch, that's been itching for 6 yrs now since I first scratched around it.
So here I come you blood sucking insects-probably going to have a tick latched someplace tonight.🤣
Have a great day today everyone.

Happy Independence day!
Where is Red Coat...wanna rub it in! 😂✌❤
Doubt will do any good. I lived there for about 5 years and tried to get them to join me in Independence Day celebration each year but they did not seem to see the humor.
