  1. This is Jim’s (“Paleface“) family - Sue (wife), Cindy (daughter) and Jim Jr.(son). Jim shared many of your posts with us over the years, especially in the last few months when you sent such supportive, heart warming encouragements and prayers to him. Thank you for that. And thanks to all of you who shared your love of rock hunting with him. As so many of you know he was a rock hound to the core - having spent his whole life around mines, collecting rocks, silversmith/jewelry making, metal detecting and searching for gold and meteorites. Jim died suddenly just before midnight Sunday, October 2

  3. Dammit Bob, :hmmmmm: What we gotta do..........Gorilla glue you down until that knee is totally healed??? I sure hope that it will mend on its own and you don't have to go thru another knee replacement. As far as the prostate goes, you just might have to cut back on your bordello attendance, brandy and coffee. Milk and anything else high in calcium is a prostate problem. The bordello and a gut full of brandy probably is high on the list as screw breakers. ;) Get well.........My friend, we got a some drift to drive and a couple shafts to sink, even if they be shallow ones........
  4. Ruben, Del and Mike Ruben, that is one beautiful chunk of space rock, I hope that it turns out to be one of the rare ones, I have never seen anything like it. Simply would have sent me to the nearest bushes to clean my britches to have made a find like that. Congratulations.... Thanks for your PM awhile back, I will answer it in private other than to say that ....Do not sell yourself short on patience with newcomers, you have instructed quite a few with great success. What you are doing with your video's, tributes and posts are just a continuation of the teaching that you may not think yo
  5. Max, Sure hope that you had a super 74th Birthday. If your worrying about hair, I still have some left on the sides of my head and when this Chemo makes it fall out, I will gather it up and make you a small toupee if you so desire..... I am keeping my gold teeth and the upper plate still fits, so your outta luck there......... Take care, my friend......... Jim
  6. Denny, Hope that you had a wonderful Birthday, 47 is prime time................over the hill is just around the corner, but then your only as old as you feel and I hope you feel young forever. Jim
  7. All Here is wishing all you Rye Patchers one heck of a good outing. I am almost tempted to miss a few radiation and Chemo treatments just to get a slice of Maureen's cornbread casserole. Since I have to miss out on the shin-dig, I did the next best thing....... Bought a quarter ounce of Rye patch gold from John Wolfe, the other day. Sure is pretty stuff, took him 3 months to crumb it with his Gold Bug II, while looking for meteorites. Hope that everyone has a safe and productive outing....... Jim
  8. insurgentsa, There is also another possibility that what you have is Blast Furnace Slag, What Fred mentioned would fit into this catagory. Notice the reddish surface tinge on your specimen and also the surface glaze. Check out these links............. http://www.turnstone.ca/mets.htm http://meteorites.wustl.edu/meteorwrongs/m026.htm Jim
  9. Hey Frank, :raspberry: 57, Wow, you are getting to be an old relic....................... :chowtime: have a big chunk of cake and a bowl of Icecream or Irish Cream, which ever tickles ur fancy..... :unsure: :zapped: Enjoyed visiting with you at the MPA meeting. Happy Birthday my friend, :whoopie: many many more will follow.......... Jim
  10. Martin, I pray that you and yours are safe and continue to be safe from the fire dangers in your area. Just living with the fear every year has got to create a super sized ulcer. Hope all is well, my friend........... Jim
  11. Chris, Hope that your day was a great one and that there are many more to follow. May the gold gods smile upon you and help you find a nice chevron at the Rye Patch outing...... :luck: Jim
  12. All you space rock chasers, please read my post over on the Gold Nugget Shooting Forum. You are the greatest bunch of friends that any person could ask for............ Jim
  13. To all my wonderful and very thoughtful friends on this great forum. :wubu: :yourock: I want you all to know that I have appreciated all your kind thoughts and prayers. The many posts, PM's and phone calls that I have received have kept my spirits high. This is the hardest post that I have ever had to make on any subject......... Several months ago I went in for an update on my heart medications and to see why I had a cough that was getting annoying. An xray showed a mass on the right lung, a follow up Cat-scan showed that the mass was around 3" in diameter. A needle biopsy was don
  14. Fred, (Thirst) and probably a couple pretty good hangovers....... That is exactly what I thought when I first spotted those bottles, they were just barely sticking up thru the sand at that time. Jim
  15. Arch, Congratulations on your wise choice of an entry level prospecting detector. The GMT is my favorite VLF detector and it has served me well. I purchased one of the first ones to hit the market and it is still running like a charm and I have not found anything that would or could replace it. I am not aware of any books that have been published that relate to the GMT exclusively. There are several books written by Larry Sallee, ZIP ZIP....Mastering Your Nugget Detector (Revised Edition), 1996 and ZIP ZIP.... The Advanced Course, 1997. The Complete Unabridged Zip Zip came out later
