    Remember , AZ has Cactus

    I wonder just what kind of protection those latex gloves will provide the EMT's? Probably keep from getting their blood all over the poor guy. Old Tom

    Good wife

    Someone always has to throw a monkey wrench into the soup. This has been a good clean gathering for many years. Women are all welcome and are respected at our function at all times. We know how to get rid of undesirables. Old Tom

    Hey Jack, consider yourself very fortunate to have a mate that wants to share your passion. Remember that Bill and company will be giving lessons on Saturday to us learners. I intend to alleviate myself of the opportunity. I can't see to grasp the hang of that dang thing by myself. I got a lot of preconceptions I have to get rid of and get taught proper. Old Tom
  8. Doc's right on with what he says about Mohs surgery I have had all three kinds of skin cancer and in every instance I waited until the report came back whether or not they got it all in the first round of cutting. I usually fall asleep waiting for the results. That is the only way to go, I wouldn't have surgery any other way. I haven't had any cut out on my head as yet so that idea about Mohs only done on the head is debunked. When I grew up on the Jersey shore they didn't have much of a sun block program then. I spent some time in the Navy on the flying bridge of the ship as a navigator/signalman. Thirty plus years on telephone poles as a lineman then a cable repairman all exposed to the suns rays. I only learned to take care of my skin in later years. The skin is the largest organ of your body. It is to be taken care of the same as your heart, kidneys, liver, etc. Young folks take a lesson from the geezers, You won't regret it. Old Tom

    NO WORDS! From across the World........

    Just what is this, Crystalline Gold, Pyrite, or some new element? Sure is interesting how the earth formed it naturally. Old Tom

    We continue to take what life gives us as we go along the road. Don't give up, and I see that you are still hanging on to the lighter detectors like I am. The charging days are over, just walk in and detect slowly like they have been trying to tell us for years. Gold is an added bonus for me, I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors and comradeship of the diggers in our group. Hang in there and do your best brother. Old Tom

    Gold Basin might have some rain

    I hope that the school bus stayed were he should have. We have been out since the rains but in our areas there was more fill sediment than wash out areas. Haven't been back in the LSD area yet. Anyone know just how that area fared? Old Tom

    Before & After

    You would hardly know that anyone was there before you. That is until you got to bed rock and didn't find any gold. You would then know that the 'gold dust' twins had been there. Old Tom
