A Little Fodder for the 4th…

HAVE A SAFE AND FUN FILLED HOLIDAY!

4thJuly

The 4th of July is one of those holidays that makes us realize just how lucky we are to be living in the United States of America. A place where, despite your political differences, your religion, your nationality, your social standing, you can stand up and say what is on your mind without fear of recrimination.

As simple as that may sound there are millions of people around the world who do not have the same privilege, so while indulging yourself this weekend remember our troops stationed abroad who are fighting those who wish to take that right away….

Lastly, eat some BBQ, a burger, a hot dog, drink a beer (a glass of red for me), enjoy the fireworks, and when your wife is not looking, sneak out and go detecting. After all it is INDEPENDENCE day!!

And please remember…..

WELCOME TO TEXAS!

Well here comes summer…. Time to get the AC tuned up and put more than on bottle of white in the frig. Wouldn’t be out detecting even if I did feel up to it.  Just too damn hot.

DALLAS FORECAST

When I moved to Texas 28 years ago I came up with a guide that determines when I will go detecting. Have stuck with it over the years.

THE STOUT HEAT INDEX SCALE

  • 80 degrees…..Yep!
  • 85 degrees…..Probably!
  • 90 degrees…..Will think about it!
  • 95 degrees…..Nope!
  • 100 degrees…Hell No!
  • 105 degrees…Are you shittin’ me?

Right now we are in the “Hell No” time period.

THE GOOD OLE DAYS

Still gong through storage boxes and scanning things that were overlooked prior to the tornado, as well as things that are damaged. Found the following and it brought back fond memories.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MOM & DAD

Monday, July 4th, would be my Mom and Dad’s 80th wedding anniversary, and there’s not a day goes by that I don’t think of them. If your parents are still living treasure the moment, and let them know just how much you love and appreciate them…..

    An a Happy 4th weekend to you and your family. 71 degrees and 2 inches of rain and more on the way.
    Wife says if this was winter that would be wonderful foot to 2 feet of SNOW.
    You be careful detecting when you can.

    Yeah, you are right. Our kids came over and we all enjoyed those things that you stated. Happy 4th to all.
    We had some rain here in NJ. Some parts got a good soaking but not where I am …..still to dry and to hot, so “hell no” covers it for me too.
