I want to thank Dan Hughes for giving Stout Standards a plug on his latest metal detecting podcast. At least I think I do? You see he actually called me a curmudgeon, and if that weren’t bad enough he then called me an angry old man. Well Dan, I will get even with you in due time…that’s what all us curmudgeons do. Perhaps when you are old enough to join the angry old men’s club, though I doubt you will be nasty enough. Anyway remember, hell hath no fury like a curmudgeon scorned!!
ANOTHER DESPONDENT DETECTORIST
Well, apparently I am not the only down trodden Tekkie right now and sorry John Winter, misery does indeed love company. Read John’s latest post and you will understand. He breaks down and finally shares those adventures he was trying so hard to hide. So welcome to the club John. Keep it up and I might consider you for membership in the above mentioned “curmudgeons club”!
HOWLAND’S HO HO HO!
Well the big bopper from Bournemouth has sent a holiday tome that I think you will like. Along with his usual funnies he actually offers to help out the Bobbsey twins with any future “tekkie hate” postings. Hope you will take a minute or two to read his latest by clicking on the Malamute Saloon link above and scrolling down to today’s date.
This morning I received an email from detectorist James Bizzell asking if I would mention his newly formed club, the Rio Grande Valley Metal Detecting Club. The group meets in Welasco, Texas, just a short distance from the Mexican border and covers the Brownsville to Rio Grande City area. Good luck James and keep us posted on what’s happening in your neck of the woods.
Pretty sure I will be updating before Christmas day but just in case Happy Holidays to you all! Be sure to have one for me….
th no fury like a curmudgeon scorned!
