Treasure-hunting in your backyard
You don't have to be a pirate to be a treasure-hound.

I got this knickname by treasure hunting in the half acre garden behind our house. The only things I found interesting were earth worms and that I could add water to the freshly plowed areas that my father was planting for the next planting of corn, IO Chief White corn. Must have gotten board with all the activites. I had always wanted to cover myself with mud since I had heard that some women use it for facials. I would like to do it again today but it's too cold in Ohio. We would have to wait for a warm weather June or July for this kind of fun. Let me know if you want to be included when I make my next "Mud" hole. KI love making mud pies with gravel and pieces of vegetables left in the garden not ripe enough to bring into the house for cooking for supper or losing them in the freezer for use later into the winters. Didn't you ever make mud pies or cover your whole self with mud like I did? So much fun and before computers and other stuff kids do today that makes their brains mush. Cheers, Margie
