Tennis Elbow Anyone?

This update may seem a little disjointed but when both John and I have a glass in our hand and write something, s**t happens.  Hope it all makes sense….

I will start with an addendum to my last post and hopefully answer a few questions that came my way. Then Dr. Howland will take over and talk tennis elbow (yeah I know, that’s what I said).

If I Had Known…


…I never took that big ole Coinmaster to that park in the 70’s? What if I simply gave up on learning how it worked, threw in the towel, gave up on the whole idea? It was certainly within the realm of possibility. Patience was never ever a virtue of mine. Continue reading

Everything You Never Wanted to Know and More…


Was digging around in the garage and opened an unlabeled box (packed by friends after the tornado) and found a shoe box of detecting finds….all junk, or so I thought. After rooting around I found a 1861 Half Penny, a 1972 Eisenhower dollar, a Mexico 5000 Pesos 1988, a 1964 Quarter with two holes in it, a pin with the logo “Zeke Knows” and a coin like item that I remember very vividly.

Q & A with Jocelyn Elizabeth…

Joceyln Elizabeth, a.k.a. the Relic Recoverist doesn’t need an introduction. She’s well-known throughout the metal detecting community and her blog, YouTube channel and column in American Digger magazine are extremely popular. Joceyln was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule to share her story and if you have questions you’d like to ask use the comment section below… Continue reading
