Several weeks ago, asked this 79 year old lady to metal detect her yard and she was nice but worried about this that and the other. Stopped at her yard sale last week after I'd been to Taco Bell and took her a steak chalupa and didn't even mention metal detecting. Then this morning I stopped in and took her a Sausage biscuit meal with coffee and happened to have my metal detector and asked if she'd thought any more about the metal detecting. She was still sort of reluctant but then she decided it would be okay on the side of the house that didn't have any pipes. She stayed with me the whole time and kept talking which was a little distracting but she was very interested in the finds. The only thing she wanted was a green matchbox kind of car shaped like a lizard. She seems poor and the house is in bad shape so I was very happy to give her a couple of meals. She said come back next week and I can hunt another section.

The Indian is not metal, it is plastic.

What is the thing on the far lower right with the hands shaking? It kind of looks Masonic.

Nice getting the permission and they way you got it!

Close to the rim (which is bent) it says "made an odd fellow"

Below that "in lodge no." But then there is no number.

That was sweet of you to get her lunch.

I think that helped her feel that you were not out to get her, as some of the old folks have that mindset.
