On the 5th of May I added a post titled Some Days It Just Doesn’t Pay, and I responded to a comment with “I need something old real bad. The Mercs and Roosie’s are not cutting it anymore….at least for me”….
This weekend I received an email from someone who took me to task for that statement, calling me a braggart and a few other names which I can’t print here (and you know there aren’t too many I can say that about). His take was that a lot of detectorists would give anything to find a Mercury dime and what I said was an insult to them. Well, after thinking about it I must say he was right and I apologize. It was not a well thought out response and to those of you I may have offended I am sorry.
While it’s not an excuse, my age, my aches and pains tend to bring forth the ole oft used phrases like “I remember when” and “how it used to be” when instead I need to face the fact that the days of coming home with a dozen or more silver coins are not going to happen anymore….at least for me. I also need to remember that coming home with one piece of silver is soooo much better than coming home without any!
My apologies again to anyone I may have offended.
