The Treasure Hunter

A few days ago we took Eric to a nearby swimming hole (empty this time of year) to search for treasure. He 'needed' a metal detector for Christmas after seeing a show about a guy who found old coins that were worth a fortune. He now thinks that he doesnt need a job when he grows up as he will be rich from his finds. Ahhh, to be young and have dreams. He found several hair clips, a few dinkies (hot wheels to you 'mericans lol) and some coins. The coins were older silver ones (50's and 60's) but the best was a 1906 dime. It's too worn to be worth anything but finding it has made Eric even more convinced that his fortune awaits him, somewhere out there, under the dirt.

That is so cool! My nephew had a metal detector and never used it.
