Another rainy day and nothing much going on here in my little corner of the world. Haven’t been out detecting of late, lost two very dear friends last week and the Pug Bug is no longer parked in front of the house. Other than that everything is hunky dory….
John Howland did send me another update, mostly anti-arkie of course and while I agree with much of what he wrote I will hold off posting it for now. I’ve had my share of “downers” this week and I’m just not obsessed with the topic (or the characters) like he is.
Stumbled across a new website (at least new to me), and it appears to be up on what’s new in the way of products. Check out DetectorsLink.
Put new strings on old classical guitar thinking my gnarled old fingers might actually work with nylon strings but no dice…..just not going to happen anymore. Maybe I will give the Fender bass a try, though my amp is doubtful having been exposed to a tornado and days of rain.
If you are a movie goer make it a point to see “Lion”…..excellent flick (yeah I know I am dating myself) and my pick for best movie (not that you give a rat’s ass….)
Still working to make the man cave more to my liking and just hung my Jason Giambi New York Yankee shirt up. Can’t wait for spring training and the first pitch.
Working on my book has slowed of late and I need to find some inspiration to get back at it. Hard when old friends suddenly up and leave this life….
Nothing But a Numbers Game…
Seems what matters most is not how much fun you had detecting but how many photos and videos you shared, how many coins, rings, relics, buckles, bullets and bottles you found and how many different detectors and coils you own.
It’s a numbers game, a competition and to the winner go the spoils…and what are the spoils? Likes, shares, comments, votes, readers, followers, viewers, listeners, members, groupies and just maybe a manufacturer connection. Oh, and “king of the hill”…..at least for the moment. Tomorrow it starts all over again because like they say in sports, “you are only as good as your last score”, and when it comes to the manufacturer….“what have you done for me lately?”
Hang in there with me…
