Default Desperate for a hit

This hobby just might be a little TOO habit forming... I managed only a short hunt over the holiday weekend, being otherwise shut out from detecting due to a slew of other, mostly family obligations. Today I found myself pretty cranky as a result, and really unable to focus. Almost kind of scary. I even snuck out on my lunch at work and hit a nearby park. I got out again after dinner and hit a few tot lots. The ground is bone dry now and digging in typically not worth the effort for my usual clad finds.

At any rate, I wound up with 51 coins today worth $6.07 including a Canadian Loonie and the usual buttons and junk.

Hopefully I'll be able to feed my habit some more this week...

Nice finds, I know what you mean. I have not been out since last week Friday and had commitments over the weekend too. Now it has been raining since Monday which should help the ground loosen up, now I just need some time to get out.

I feel your pain. I haven't been able to get out much at all lately due to being busy with other obligations. It looks like you had a good day with the clad though! Hmm, I wonder where those little heart charms come from. I found one last year and I've noticed a couple other posts where people have found them. Well, best of luck to you in finding more time to detect. HH.
