Treasure ! ! ! !
I just spent a couple hours looking for buried treasure. Actually it's my grandfather's pocket knife that is missing. And that happened way back when I had my horse in the early 80s. I'd seen Joe Ryan's photo in the paper telling about his adventures using his metal detector and thought he might be able to help me. The photo above shows the wonderous finds we made. Okay, they aren't worth anything but it was amazing to see how sensitive those machines are in finding the smallest piece of metal. No luck finding the knife unfortunately.
Born in Downers Grove, IL, I moved to Cody in 1981 after living in Boulder, CO for many years. As I enjoyed the outdoors and spent many weeks up in Wyoming going on horsepacking trips with friends, I decided to move here. I started Ironside Bird Rescue in 1987 after finding an orphaned Starling baby that had fallen out of its nest near my house. One thing led to another and after all these years the facility now has many different sized mews and flight barns for the exercise of raptors so they will be strong enough for release. I live in a 130+ year old log cabin with a corgi mix dog, her mother, a purebread corgi, a couple cats and many birds in a free flight aviary attached to the house. I'm now retired from a "real job". Along with rehabbing birds, I spend a lot of hours volunteering at our local Buffalo Bill Historical Center in the graphics department.
