Here in Texas nothing minimal ever happens….it’s all or nothing, as in the last two days of continual rain. Of course it’s been six weeks since the last drop, so I am not complaining. If all goes well, the foundation will shift back to where it should be, and all the doors will square up and close. The wet stuff is supposed to continue throughout the day and into tomorrow, thanks to Hurricane Patricia, which beat the hell out of Mexico yesterday. The weather however has been very conducive to writing, and the book is coming along nicely. Add in a glass or two of red, and all is well….
Wish I could say I have been out detecting, but I have not. Went out two weeks ago tomorrow and found a handful of clad and a small pen knife. Nothing at all worth taking a photo of. Then again just what is worthy of a photo in cyberspace? Anyway the rain should be good for Texas tekkies, and just maybe I will venture out into the wilds of the Dallas suburbs one day next week.
FROM ACROSS THE POND
John Howland just sent along the following….thanks Bubba.
All I could picture after reading “Anyone Can Rough It” was the following photo of the author “roughing it” during a fishing trip in Scotland….D.S.
LETTER WRITING APPEARS TO HAVE WORKED
While nothing has been written in stone, it appears that the call to action by the Task Force and FMDAC changed a few minds in Mason City, Iowa. The down side is that they are going to institute a permit system for detectorists. To read more click HERE.
HAS IT REALLY COME TO THIS?
A few of my Facebook tekkie friends mentioned a company named Grave Digger, so I Googled the name and came up with the following video. A great example of “video-itis”, and while the product may be terrific, the brand name is not exactly reflective of who we are. Now go ahead…beat me up!
I ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon. I will let you know……
