I know its to be expected at my age but it seems almost every day someone or something I love is no longer. Now it’s Western & Eastern Treasures magazine. The current March 2019 issue will be their last. To be fair it will still be available online but the tangible, “pick it up and take it with you” magazine will no longer be available and that saddens me.
I’m sure there are a few of you who don’t care about this but WET, its owners, publishers/editors and readers were an integral part of my life starting in the 80’s and responsible for a lot of the good things that happened in my life.
Without Rosemary and Steve Anderson I would never have started writing about the pastime, nor would the FMDAC have come to be. Both of those things resulted in major changes to my life and I will forever be grateful to them.
Doesn’t seem that long ago we had the choice of True West, Long John Latham’s Lost Treasure, True Treasure, Treasure World, Treasure, Treasure Search, Treasure Found. Western Treasures, World of Treasures, Treasure Facts, and Gold. I’m sure I left out a few as well.
Rose, enjoy your retirement and Steve I’ll be looking forward to the online edition…
No More Turn Downs
As you know I’ve been working on a new program to help treasure hunters easily obtain new permissions. I initially was going to call it “Rent-a-Kid” but after thinking about it a little more and after consulting with Bubba Howland I decided to expand it and it’s now called “Rent a First Impression Friend”.
I don’t think there’s any question that first impressions are important, especially when knocking on a stranger’s door. No matter how hard some of us try we always seem to get a no thank you. On the other hand I think we can agree that a cute little kid or a pretty gal has a much better chance of making a good first impression and receiving a yes. So here is my program and please girls no nasty comments. You know damn well your odds are much better than your male counterparts.
