      Shep, thanks a bunch

  4. All I s good Fred, I still enjoy looking at the Aussie nuggets you sent me. They occupy a special spot on my jewelry bench. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods
  5. Lightening Ridge Black Opal, N2 color and 5/5 brightness. It’s got all the colors. Almost as good as it gets. 1.9 carats from the LaHoud claims
  6. The 120 acre claim Wes and I have in Iowa Hill is a whacko shape also. It is legally described by government parcel numbers that were created when much of the land near it was government surveyed for patents. If memory serves me correct it has 15 or 16 corners
  7. John, you are like a fine wine....
  8. Well Dang everyone. just finished reading the entire thread. Dave, it is coming along very well. One comment, if you have the means($$$) to use a magneto do it, It would be far superior to a distributor, especially for prop starting. Not to mention reliability issues. Personally I would never ever want to depend on a battery to keep the motor running. I'll be here a bunch more to see the progress......and of course throw in my 2cents
  9. Thanks Don and Bill....I can certainly make that fine nugget into a pendant for you. I'm in Foresthill, not that far from Quincy. email is sjwandt(at)Reagan.com
  10. Happy Birthday, Steve....Cheers, Unc

     

  11. Good Luck Ron, Hope you heal well and fast
  12. Was a fantastic trip. Montana is flat out Amazing. Came back with a bit of gold and a nice pile of Montana Sapphires. The place we dredged was not that far from the water source, a glacier and the water was 38 degrees. After three days, the old 70 year old body just could not deal with that temp anymore. If we go again, a wet suit heater should fix that. Glacier National Park is friggin beyond description. Montana people are friendly beyond description and they made the trip even better. Our favorite town was Philipsburg where we screened for sapphires. Wallet got a bit lighter but we found more than 300 carats, some in the 2 1/2 to 3 carat range I did leave some to be heat treated and cut. I hope to end up with 6-8 carats of near perfect blue stones. I still have not uploaded the pics to the computer. We saw many animals, both in and out of the parks. I did not get to see a Moose, but Dee did on a run to town for supplies. Even got to see a small herd of Mountain Goats.
  13. NO fantastic Brazilian Coffee..... you are losing it Don!
