Found Objects

What is this? Any ideas?

I don't have to go far to find odd things. This was in the road in front of my house. Someone had already driven over it at least once. I have no idea what it is. Yes, it is shaped like the top part of a foot. And something is to be bolted on top. My best guess (and it is only a guess) is that it might be part of a tractor or other farm equipment. Maybe a pedal was bolted to the top at one point.

It is not at all unusual to find things like this around here, right in my own yard. In the past I have found a small stuffed animal, a pair of child's pants, a lost and deflated balloon, someone's medical papers, someone's school work, a receipt from Home Depot, and the biggest rope I have ever seen. The rope was not long, but was big in terms of thickness. And it had a knot in it. It would take huge hands to tie a huge knot in the huge rope. It was in the back yard, not on the street like the other things. I am guessing it fell from a helicopter from Ft. Knox. I see helicopters fly over at least once a day. I once saw a helicopter with a military jeep hanging below it. That was a sight to see! I'm not that far from Ft. Knox, and can sometimes hear the booming of tank training, especially on cold clear days when it seems like sound travels more.

I also found this (not sure what this is either, but you never know when I might need to designate something as Level 2):

And this emergency strobe light (which Does actually work).

Life is an adventure.

That's the presser foot off of a old Singer sewing machine.

Glad to help!
