OK, so on Wednesday?  I am walking the dog down the street, and YOU KNOW a)  that it was snowing heavily just over a week ago, but it is like summer now with green everywhere and b) there was my first five-leaf and four-leaf clover of the year because c) you know I am a four-leaf clover HUNTER.  I stopped counting years ago when I had found 500 of them.  I have a dictionary full of pressed four-leaf up to seven-leaf clovers.  I think the most I found in one day was 27...or 33, 37?  ANYWAY, now I generally give them away.
BUT yesterday was special and I am saving these--because then I found a dollar in the street!
Then I helped the wife with a little gardening (VERY LITTLE) and dug up buried treasure...a horseshoe! Our house is 150 years old this year and we dig up a lot of crap...but this is the best treasure so far....although the wife also found half a tombstone yesterday next to a huge tree we had cut down and we are thinking we don't really wanna dig around THERE too much....

Nice! I have a friend in MN who lives in an old Victorian house. He finds great stuff in the garden...usually where the outhouses used to be. Apparently they would just chuck any old thing they didn't need down the hole. He's found really neat old apothecary bottles, china cups & saucers, etc.

Never a tombstone though!
