    started a topic It's not easy being green.

    It's not easy being green.

    I mean that in the environmental sense and not in reference to Kermit.
    But go a head guys and lets see your new avatar suggestions for me.
    On Saturday the Gorge canoe club was replacing their floating dock boards.
    And asked if I would mind checking around the area for any items lost by members while getting in and out of the boats.
    Wading in muck up to your knees is not an easy task and no personal items were recovered.
    However another sifter full of crap was removed.
    Feeling unsatisfied with my results I headed out to return all of the bottles and cans that had been brought out of the gorge over the last three days.
    And did an old fashioned clad hunt to finish off the day.
    The $10.40 was from the recycled bottles and cans Click image for larger version

ID:	173534 This one I thought was trash also but it still powers up.
    It's locked so I can't call the last number to get them to let the owner know that it has been found.
    If an add for a lost phone shows up I will see if it can be returned. Click image for larger version

    Take the pin on the left. It doesn't look like much but what it represents is a very big deal.
    Or at least it was 26 years ago. Click image for larger version

    At one point while cleaning up a nasty penny spill of more than 60 pennies,
    this little surprise happened to be less than 2 inches down. And I found it simply by searching the grass with the pinpointer while on my knee. Click image for larger version
