The lucky streak starts back up

Tha boY has taken note of the killer megalodon teeth I've found at the new pond, so he really wanted to go to say the least. I took him out this evening to try his luck at the pond, but we arrived to a double shot of bad news. First, the crews were working so they would chase us off if they were to see us digging. Second (and 10 times worse), the new pond had been grassed. That means the crews are done working on the pond. Digging in a grassed pond is a sure fire way to get thrown in jail for willful destruction of property and trespassing. Not wanting to be the cause of my 10 year old's first stay in jail, we opted to look for another place to dig. We went over to the spot that should not be, and sure enough, there was a new pond. It was only 45 minutes to dark, so we moved quickly to cover as much ground as possible. tha boY gave up and just started chukking stuff into the pond. He wasn't complaining, though, so I dug until dark. My best finds of the day were a tough looking little mako and a huge intervertebral disk. This pond isn't done yet, though, so I'll take a line from California's new governor - I'll be back.
