Lost pocket knife
« on: August 30, 2017, 10:56:57 pm »
In 2012 my son and I were building fence in the woods and my son lost his new pocket knife. We looked and looked and even used a metal detector without success. Today it just seemed to reappear right next to the goat shed. We have been out there 1000s of times and never seen it.

  

  like it was dropped last night. No rust and still sharp.

I told him we would find it.  ;D

I guess I'd say a crow might have found it first. Any nests around?

Mine seems to have disappeared last week sometime. I checked all the normal spots like under my recliner, washer/dryer. Even called Hospice as I was sitting in a recliner there 12 hours a day till last Thursday but no luck.
Billy {wild Bill} gave me this one about 5-6 years ago. I'm bummed.

Many years ago, Tammy and I went up to Chet and Judy's for Thanksgiving weekend. While there, I took the opportunity to go out deer hunting one final time for the season. Chet and Judy live in the land of big snow in the western U.P., so there was plenty of it already that November.   The following spring, we were invited to come back up for Easter.  Well, in the yooperland of ice and snow, there is still lots of it at that time too.   Chet plows much of his yard beyond his driveway during the winter to make sure there is plenty of room for all that snow to go and there are multitudes of times it is plowed.

  As we were getting ready to leave that Easter Sunday, I happened to scuff my foot in the now thawing driveway on something. I looked down to see just a glint of something shiney. Hoping it was money ( ;) )  I bent over and pried up the object still mostly frozen in the drive. It was my folding hunting knife that I had dropped that past November while either going out or coming back in from hunting. The plow had missed it all winter, not a scratch or nick on it. No one ever saw it laying there, in fact, no one ever knew it was missing including me, until I picked it up out of Chet's chunk of frozen U.P. tundra 6 months later.

Not to get too far off subject but I found dad's billfold after he'd lost it while we'd been laying out irrigation pipe.    I found it 3 years later, not much left of it but why I happened to notice it is beyond me.  My stepson has given me 2 Kershaw knives for Christmas, I lost the first and the second I left on my baler but found that one thank goodness, I love those knives.

I was coon hunting one night years ago.treed the coon and shot it out.
Leaned the gun up against a tree so I could gather up all the dogs and went back to the truck.
Got home and realized I left the gun in the woods.
Went back there and looked for weeks but never found it.
About 8 years later we treed in the same tree.
Guess what I found!!
Very rusted  >:(

When I was ten, my grandfather gave me a Zippo folding knife. I was never more than five feet from that knife until I had to go to jury duty for the first time at 18. I lost it through a hole in my pants from a bike handled brush cutter. A couple of months later,  a coworker found it when we went back for a second trimming. I never carried it again after that.
