    Ok I was replacing a couple of dead trees earlier this week and as we were diging the holes larger than what they previously were dug for the old trees I ran across a small gold nugget.
    What would you have done?
    1. Keep it and not tell the owner?
    2. Give it to the owner?
    3. Tell the owner but keep it anyways?
    4. put it back in the ground for good luck?

    Checked my watch to make sure it hadn't fallen off and got hit by the auger, then check dental work in the truck mirror, if all was ok I'd probably just keep it and convince the owner they need more trees. :p

    if you broke an electrical line while digging, it would have been yours to fix. well, it's a two way street aint it?

    i agree with out4now..

    Dig up his whole yard when he is at work. then take off for the islands and hire someone one to redo his yard and have the guy send you the bill.....

    Keep it. Most likely it would have never been found by anyone else. BTW, how big was the nugget?
