Just a few tidbits for the Father’s Day weekend…..
A LITTLE TONGUE IN CHEEK
First, if you haven’t visited the Daily Detectorist site yet be sure you do. Lots of both subtle and in your face humor, and do keep that in mind as you read…
THE DAILY DETECTORIST
NO SUCH THING!
Next, I want to respond to an email from Don, who thanked me for my blog and wished he could be a professional TH’er too…(picture me ROFLMAO).
Sorry Don, I am NOT a professional treasure hunter/detectorist, and I don’t know anyone who is. I did work for Garrett at one time, but my job title was “director of marketing” and my daily task was to promote (okay push) and sell metal detectors, not use them. Sure I did get to field test products and travel some, but the bottom line was literally the bottom line, as in profit, as in dollars and cents. I was not being paid to dig coins or relics. So now you know the rest of the story……
This post from 2014 is appropriate here….thank you Stan Shoemaker.
A PROFESSIONAL TREASURE HUNTER….TO BE OR NOT TO BE!
THINGS ARE COMING ALONG
To those of you who wonder how Fay and I are getting on…. We are slowly but surely getting used to the new house. It still isn’t “home” yet but we know that will take time. We’re sorting through boxes of items that made it through the tornado, and deciding on what to keep and what to get rid of. Very hard after 49 years of marriage, and the smaller house just adds to the dilemma.
In case you can’t tell Fay is the decorator and doing a great job!
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY
Finally Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there. Hope there’s a little digging involved…..
Happy Father’s Day dad….miss you!
“Mr. Jones, I have reviewed this case very carefully,” the divorce court judge said, “and I’ve decided to give your wife $750 a week.”
“That’s very fair your honor.” the husband said “and every now and then I’ll try to send her a few bucks myself”.
