Someone must love tooth hunters

Today started off EARLY! We all got up at 5 because we had a yard sale. We emptied our garage in hopes that wouldn't have to carry it back when the sale was over. That wasn't the case, but we made enough to make it worth doing. And my garage is now MUCH cleaner. Perhaps a boat will soon call it home?? Anyway, we carried the stuff left over to Goodwill, and by the time we got home, we could see a storm blowing in. I was planning on going to check out some recently dredged ditches with this dude from work, but I knew he didn't want to hunt in the rain. And what a rain it was!! It poured for 15 minutes, and I was salivating to get out to the new spot. You see, all week long, I had watched as work had proceeded down the road from the forbidden pond. Yup, they are digging more sewer lines, and even better, another HUGE pond. I knew that with the rain, if I got out there quickly, I would rack. But, since I had to do my duty and return the tables from our yard sale back to work first. Alas, I was not first. There were 4 other people combing the fields when I arrived. My heart sank. I had missed out. Or did I? J of the Golden Shovel was out there, and he pulled out a SWEET benedeni that he had just found. What a lucky guy. He says "follow me", and so I did. Over to the other side of the development to walk the flattened piles from other sewer work. Nothing substantial, but we did find a pond that they had just started digging. Man! Another spot to dig! There isn't enough time in the day! Anyway, after a disappointing walk in that field, J decided to call it quits and head home. I decided to give the pond near the forbidden one last try before heading home. There were footprints everywhere, but I was still determined. Remember those sewers I was telling you about? Well, no one had walked them yet! Everyone had made a bee line to the pond and overlooked the sewers. Paydirt! Man, I racked up the teeth. I totally wish I had brought the camera today, because there were teeth everywhere. Oh well, you can see the photo. Sometime this week, I gotta head back out and check out the digging at that pond. There are more megs to be found!! And, to boot, I met a new guy out there. He finds a lot of stuff, so I think I'll call him the Tooth Hoover until he tells me difference.
