Found the kids "treasure chest"
A few years back my kids buried a cigar box of coins in the back yard. They couldn't remember the exact spot, but said it was near the pool. I searched the area previously with no luck, but the new M6 found it. It was buried about 14 inches and the box was totally disintergrated. In with the coins they buried was a 1937 wheaty!

You didn't give it back to the kids did you ?? You sure have sandy soilIneptocracy [in-ep-toc'-ra-cy] - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. There are three classes of people: those who see...those who see when shown...and those who do not see. - Leonardo da Vinci
