DON’T YOU JUST LOVE IT!
I found this article the other day and had to share it here. You see all too frequently we are painted with an extremely broad brush as bad guys by those in the ‘holier than thou’ enemy camp, yet when misdeeds like the following happen they are always labeled inaccurate, misconstrued, taken out of context or political in nature. Yep, only detectorists are capable of such things. Just ask any archaeologist. They will tell you exactly “how it is”. Hmm, yeah right….
MACEDONIA JAILS ITS TOP ARCHAEOLOGIST
BETTER TO SPEND YOUR TIME IN A PUB
My twin brother John Winter sent along the following article and suggested I might not like the English countryside next time I come over. Not sure if he’s trying to tell me something but I offer it here for your consideration too. If you are one of those who pays six months worth of car payments to detect the UK fields it might be of use….thank you bro!
Perils of the English Countryside
I have been retired now for almost three years but I am constantly looking for ways to bring in a little extra money. If you remember I thought I had come up with a way to do that when I posted A Way to Make Money On the Side back in October. Well all that kind of fizzled out and I was back to square one UNTIL a friend posted the following on Facebook.
Meet the Woman Who Cuddles for $60 an Hour
I figure if this gal can do it for $60 and hour I can do it for $30 and make a killing (women only of course). I need your feedback on this however. I emailed the article to Fay and told her about my plans and the only response I received was ROFLMAO. I have no idea why but she has never been very supportive of my plans and projects but that’s okay, I will have the last laugh when the money starts rolling in.
In the meantime I need to pick up an appointment book and decide on a catchy name for the business. So far I have come up with “The Cuddling Curmudgeon” and “Clinch the Grinch”. I also thought I might offer beer (for an extra fee of course) and use “Hug & Chug with a Slug”. I wanted to use my real name but everything sounded obscene and I didn’t want anyone to think I was some sort of gigolo. I stopped with all that a couple years ago.
Anyway be patient gals. Remember what they say….”good things come to those who wait”.
“The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made”…Groucho Marx
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BETTER HALF!
Fay, doing what she loves, Lacoste, France
Tomorrow is Fay’s BD and I wanted to publicly wish her a great day. I won’t tell her age because she would beat me profusely, but she is much younger than I. I also hope she enjoys my presents… a 50 piece wrench set, a new vacuum cleaner and a set of dish towels (okay, just kidding. I didn’t get her the dish towels).
Seriously, Happy Birthday honey….love you!
