  1. Aww, they look a lot like corn flakes to me Bob.  Are you sure that they didn't get a little soggy inside of the watermelon?  If they are still crunchy after you bit down on them with you're set of choppers then I suppose that we'll have to believe you.    :4chsmu1:

  2. Look Skip, the only way that Bob is going to get through those 'Pearly Gates' is if he stands right below that suction wind he had come through his yard.  He'd better make sure that the thing was not a down draft or else he might wind up digging nuggets from the bottom up.  I know I left myself open for a lot of flack but I'm on a lot of narcotics right now and I'm cruising at 20,000 around Mach 1, I think.     :hide:

  3. Glad to  hear that your dad is responding so well to the Stem Cell Therapy.  I hope it will help me in my case.  I am not a good candidate for knee replacement as my age is 86 now and no one wants to handle my case.  Medicare has opted to cover Stem Cell Therapy now within the last couple of months.  Previously it was too expensive to consider and the steroid shots were working well.  Now they don't work at all so here I go on the other option.  One other thing I considered very closely was that stem cells are gathered from umbilical cords of fetuses'.  I told the Doc that if they came from aborted fetuses' that I would not participate in a program of that sort.  He assured me that it is not the case and he would not be in it either if that were the case.  I go in for the shots on Wednesday, 'oh happy day'!

    Anyone have any suggestions for no metal boots?  

    I got some from LA Police Gear in 2013 that are discontinued and disappeared from the back of my truck, and my last set of work boots fell apart after 25 years.

    That's where I get my non metallic boots at also.  They do have good buys from time to time on discontinued items.  Go back through their inventory again and I'm sure that you'll find something good for yourself.  

    That boot in the picture looks like it is laughing at you.  :25r30wi:

  5. I guess that you haven't been out in a while either Andy.  It's so hot down here that all I do is go food shopping and put out out the garbage each week.  Come cooler weather watch out man I'm going all in.  I'm feeling a lot better and I start my Stem Cell Therapy for my knees next week.  Sherri, Young Tom's wife, is making a miraculous recovery from her bout with Cancer.  After operations, bone grafts, feeding tubes, Radiation, Chemo etc., etc. She is healed of that dreaded scourge.  Tom took great care of her for all that time and coaxed her along all through it.  He might be a little crazy at times but he makes a heck of a Soul Mate.  I was pretty crazy at his age also.  I guess he learned some of it from me.  We'll get out now as soon as it gets cooler and he gets some free time for himself.  I don't dare go alone as I might just fall in one of those holes that I dig. 

    See you out there Andy...........

  6. The dark eyed ones from the planet Russia probably threw you out for talking too much.  Glad to hear that everything went well and are on the mend.  Just remember to allocate the heavy chores to your young'un like pulling an elk out of the woods this fall.

  7. I remember that trip well.  Patrick fell backwards in his chair an almost rolled down the hill.  We were camped on a slant as there was no flat ground around.  Good thing too as the water from the deluge just ran off and left us without mud in camp.  Tammy doctored up Patrick's wounds from falling and did a very good job.  That was a fun campout for the middle of the summer.

  8. As one gets older surgery is for the birds.  I've had more than my share and still going.  Opted out for knee replacement and going in for Stem Cell Therapy.  Let you know in a few months just how it all works out.  Good luck on your surgery tomorrow and will remember you in prayer tonight.  Getting old sucks too.

  9. That cricket has found more gold than the 'Two Toms'.  We haven't been out this year as yet due to other than the heat and virus.  Young Tom is all tied up taking care of his wife who is very ill.  I've been coming back from my own bout with hospitals and cancer.  My back and legs don't work very good anymore and tomorrow I go to the doc to find out about Stem Cell Therapy for my knees.  I sure would like to get out again.  I know there is a big nugget out there just waiting to be picked up and i want to be the one to do it.  The rains are coming and cooler weather is not far away.  Screw the 'Virus'  :-)

    Yes I have tinnitus bad: Too many 50 Cals,  3In/50 cannons, unprotected  helicopter hours. But the VA says there is no such thing, I am just hearing things !  Need to tie them under an Oak tree .:head:

    Yeah those 3" 50 cannon can be a bit noisy in a gun tub on a ship.  We also fired 5" 38 cannon.  The only thing that we had for hearing was cotton.  Also it was dirty and exposed to everything foul around the ship.  Today the government is being sued by vets for not providing the proper ear protection while firing ordnance.  That doesn't go for us guys that didn't have any ear protection at all or very little.  My hearing is very bad and the tinnitus is constant but the VA says that I make too much money to qualify for hearing aids.  Go figure that.  I can still hear those Chichadas though.

  11. Those little boogers sure do make enough noise when it gets hot.  The kids around here tie cotton thread on them under their wings and fly them around on a long line.  After they are done playing and they are exhausted they let them go.  The trees are full of their exoskeletons hanging onto the bark. 

    That piece of gold looks a lot like one that my son found a few years ago. We call it the pizza nugget because it is flat and round and on top it looks like a pizza.  A really good find for you in this day and age, congrats.

  12. The first thing that I would do is to employ some kind of magnet to the area that you intend to search.  If you could borrow a shop sweeper magnet on wheels that would be good.  Rake the area with a firm garden rake to loosen the metal that is just below the surface.   If you lost the ring recently then it shouldn't be covered with dirt so turn your gain way down an go so very slow on the first try.  The ring should really jump out being so close to the detector and ignore the faint signals.  If you think that it is covered with dirt then dig everything.  :black_knight_standing:
