Hope you are all enjoying the Labor Day weekend and the ‘official end of summer’. I must tell you though I haven’t experienced a real fall in Texas since moving here 26 years ago. Summer just never wants to end and about the only orange or yellow you will see is your lawn dying.
I have come to the conclusion that only those born here love it here. The rest of us just keep playing the lottery in hopes we can win enough to move…
Have one for me and be safe this holiday weekend….
RING RETURN ON LONG ISLAND
Many thanks to Gary Killmer for sending along the following newspaper article and a special thank you to Mike Cogan, the detectorist who made the story possible. I will say however that the lady’s comment “some broke metal-detector dude might pocket it” kind of burned my ass. Apparently any other “dude” finding it and pocketing it is okay, not to mention wearing rings worth $13,600 to the beach is not exactly a very bright idea.
SIX YEARS FOR DAN HUGHES
Congratulations to Dan Hughes and his “In the Treasure Corner” podcast. Friday marked it’s six year anniversary (157 total episodes). I love listening to Dan’s laid back style and his podcasts are always interesting. If you have never listened to “In the Treasure Corner” do yourself a favor and do so today. I guarantee you won’t be sorry.
A GREAT SURVIVAL TIP
Thanks to my wife Fay for this extremely important survival tip. I urge you all to view it, memorize it, practice it and never, ever forget it. It just might save your life. It saved mine last night…
WHAT WAS I THINKING?
