It has been a busy week around our place. Mama was busy working in the garden creating another garden bed along the back fence...
I don't know if you remember... but for the past year, a pile of spare wood has sat on that spot, covered by tarps. What with all the building going on, those wood pieces have all been used up! Finally! It was a bit of an eyesore and a Chinese Triad Rat Gang hangout... but now it's gone!
So, in that blank, grassless space... it was decided to create another bed... perhaps for raspberries! A little bear can definitely get behind that plan. As with most digging projects in our yard, there were, of course, a certain number of archaeological artifacts unearthed.
A bit of rusted chain, a toy screw driver, an action figure, some green handled clippers, a seahorse thingie.... and...
This mysterious object!
Yes... it is what you think it is... a bullet for a rifle of some sort.
I really DO hope that whoever lived here way back when didn't leave any unexploded grenades lying around. Seriously! The way pushes the shovel into the ground... that could end in disaster! I really do not know what to make of the people who lived here previously... cowboy plumber hunters with kids?
