Here in North Texas we just experienced a wondrous and strange event…..RAIN, and lots of it. No one could have predicted it, and believe it or not, a great many of our lakes are now full or near full. Add in three consecutive sunny days with temps near 80, and I just had to drag my sorry ass out for a little detecting (and slow methodical torture)….
I didn’t feel too bad when I headed out the driveway, but two hours later I crawled my way back to the Pug Bug, cursing under my breath, and drove home. Folks I am, without question, past my prime, over the hill, moth-eaten, time-worn and a poor damn excuse for a detectorist.
I did come home with a couple of pieces of silver, but I am not sure they were worth the wear and tear on the knees. The day was gorgeous, the air was fresh, the mind was willing, but the body wasn’t, and won’t be again now for some time. I have no idea what the answer is but tomorrow I will start working on a detector holder for over the fireplace….
