The butt crack nugget


SGTFDA

Recommended Posts

I invited my wife Angie and her sister to the GPAP outing at LSD Sat. To my surprise they were all for it. After we arrived Angie told me to give them a bucket and shovel and off they went. Every time they bent over to scoop some dirt out pops the butt crack. Needless to say they received lots of advice from the fellow prospectors. They brought 2 buckets of dirt home. This morning Angie wanted to run the dirt through my cleanup equipment. Needless to say I knew it would be time down the drain. But you need to keep the sweetie happy. I showed her how to use the mini highbanker and gold panner. After a while she said see could see something in the gold panner cup. I'm like sure honey! I look in there and a .6 gram nugget and a gold flake is in the cup. Go figure. Those two just running about with their little shovel and bucket getting dirt here and there in the wash find a nugget.

Thus the butt crack nugget.

Love the story Frank

This isn't really the same thing but it reminded me of a trip my wife and I took to 'Vegas some years ago.

I told her as we checked into Mandalay Bay "Look honey, we're going to be serious this time and try to win

some money on a few shot machines I've done well with recently." My wife agreed, we were going to be serious about this...

A few minutes later we're walking across the casino sizing up the machines. My wife suddenly gasps and runs over

to a bank of new machines. They were called "little piggy" or something like that. All the wheels had pictures of

little piggies and so did the screen whenever you won something. "Ooh look," she said "Piggies! That is soooo cute

What great machines!" I gently reminded her we were there for a reason and it didn't have anything to do with little piggies

no matter how cute they were.

My wife sat down at another bank of machines and I wandered off.

A few minutes later there was a loud clanging sound and lights were flashing, lighting up a huge area about fifty feet away.

People hurried past to see what was going on. I kept playing for a couple of minutes longer as more people made their

way past me to have a look at the commotion. Finally I lost the money I had put in my slot machine and decided

to go have a quick look at the lucky winner.

Of course it was my wife, sitting at the little piggy machine with bells going and lights flashing as the

slot attendant finished up counting out a couple of thousand bucks. She and had hit the jackpot on her third pull.

It's a nice memory.

fwiw,

Flak

What a great story! I'm still laughing :lol: and now my wife wants to know if I have ever, "done that to her!" :nono: Isn't that the way life is? We work our u-know-whats off, researching, getting the right equipment, checking the wind, wearing our lucky shirt - the girls or kids run off with a Walgreen's sand shovel and bucket - and viola, GOLD! - Too funny! Thank's for sharing :thumbsupanim Terry

El Dorado she now has the fever

Don, Angie hit at the casino and bought me all the stuff. Flack I will not tell her about the piggy game. Angie will use any excuse to go to the casino.

Here is a photo of ANGIE after the big hunt. She is in the middle.

Yes she was a child bride. I was 38 and Angie was 21. We've had 20 great years. We were married in the Bahamas and they listed her as a spinster on the license. If your not married by 14 there your a spinster.

More Au to you, Robert

Robert I was detecting up on the hill above them so I could keep an eye on them. I think they dug up the whole wash. The gold fever took hold. Trust me I never thought they would do that. Angie won't even go outside if she thinks a bug is around let alone dig in the dirt.

Everyone had a great time and the girls said everyone was very nice and helpfull.

Hey! I recognize a couple of the folks in that pic.

Crap, did I lose my hunting buddy to his wife? What about bros before... oh, wait, family forum here. LOL

Angie has just had one heck of a lucky year so far... hitting Keno and now finding larger gold than you. Knowing her, she's rubbed it in so hard it's going to scar, huh?

Tell her I said congrats and will bring the quad by (If I can ever get home) so she can wreck... er... ride it. :)
