Unconventional Twists & Turns…

AIR METAL DETECTORS

Is it real or is it Memorex (you may have to look that up)? Not sure what to make of this but I will sit back and see what develops. Then again I’ve been at square one for some time now and to be honest I am quite content there.

TBT Time…

Not sure if it’s spring fever or old age but it’s been a lethargic and listless couple of weeks. The following is from 2016….

POOR JOHNNY

The recent back and forth about company support for hunts and programs struck a chord with me in that I used to be on the receiving end when I was Marketing Manager for Garrett back in the late 80’s.

Throwback Thursday – Charles Garrett…

Still searching for the itch to go detecting again as well as a place to do it…35 degrees and light rain ain’t helping.  Likewise Tuesday was “knee replacement” day for Fay so the “honey do” lists have been replaced with a lot of “get your butt in here now” stuff.  Fun days ahead…

Anyway with the Garrett Memorial Hunt coming up in 4 weeks time here’s a Throwback from April 2015…shortly after Charles passed away.

Pedestrian Adventures…

We just went detecting!

Beyond Taxing

Someone not too long ago suggested that because I don’t get out detecting that much I should tax the brain and share a few stories/adventures from years gone by. My first reaction was hell I can’t remember what I had for breakfast, how am I supposed to remember what happened years ago?  Continue reading
