Recently it became very clear that I needed a metal detector. I was walking around outside on a nice sunlight day when I kept seeing gilts of something on the ground. After leaning down and poking around I came to one conclusion.
Mother of God I need a metal detector STAT!
Please ignore the leaves and sad, neglected picnic table. So far we have!
Above is what I have pulled out of the ground by hand, sans about 20 rusty nails and a heap of broken glass.
I have no idea what this is but it's about 11 inches long and white in some places.
I'm not sure what it was but I shall name it tetanus!
This...long metal stabby thing...is around 2 feet long and angled on one side.
Here it is again, intimidating the other yard relics.
Above is a sampling of the other items I've found. Random tiles, nails and socket type thing?
So yes, a metal detector is in order, if for no other reason than I really don't want one of the kids to accidentally fall on a nail or other random shape, pointy thing. I honestly don't know why no one else that ever live here never noticed giant metal objects poking out the ground, but hey, maybe I just look down a lot.
Summer relic hunting, here I come!
