Hi Don ... Haven't been on the forum much this year and just got down to reading your section. darn you've had a rough time there. Sorry to hear about losing so many friends to CV19. Hope it gets better for you guys over the next month or so. Been lucky myself ... no sickness and no vaccine even at 72 years old. I just don't trust the so called vaccine. Much like the 'flu shot' notice they call it a shot and not a flu vaccine. Not tested for long enough period to really call it a vaccine. Now the polio and chickenpox 'vaccine' really are ... tested over a long period of time. Too many people having serious side effects to call the Covid shot a vaccine ... just my opinion of course! Anyway ... stay well my friend!

Hope Don is ok! I think we are just getting over Covid here.

Right now, I can't even mention what we just went through... it started Memorial Day weekend on Saturday morning. Today is looking good, looking like we probably made it through.

All of us ran fevers, but my dad who has turned 90 years already, got it last and many times worse tan all our symptoms put together. Monday night, the 14th (?) got so dad could not stand up, coughing stuff out of his lungs. It was that bad already about 3-4 days. He tried to crawl up the stairway to his room but only got halfway up with me helping. That turned out to be good because stuff drained out of his lungs all over the steps. After began improving right away... probably because now getting more oxygen. We had sleep down in the family room for the night. About 5:00 AM in the morning dad got up by himself and walked up the stairs, used the bathroom up there, then to his room. Dad made the most remarkable recovery.

Hello folks thanks for the responses and trying to reach me. Still having a few problems from the 

Covid I had last year. My taste and smell has returned, lost 19 lbs, wasn't overweight to begin with

so my weight loss is all in my muscles. 

Haven't heard of any more arrest of prospectors by the Federal Police since about last April or May. 

Most of the prospectors here have moved about 1,500 miles North. The gold buyer got out of jail

but he opened a new shop but he doesn't buy gold any more. I need to visit him to see how much 

he wants for the GPX 6000. Bill will my GPX 4000 coils work on the GPX 6000? I have about 8

different coils. The little Joey mono is hard to beat on a worked out patch! 

Mac I didn't know you had returned to Brazil, are you staying or visiting. Stop by any time. 

My email is still the same: d.goldmartin@uol.com.br, cell phone: 55-62-8541-0545 that's my 

"whatsapp"number but it only works if I have a wi-fi connection.

Sorry Don, but the 6000 will not be able to use your other GPX coils. The coils for the 6000 are 10 prong and a very different connector.

Glad to hear you are getting better my friend.

Glad to hear Don, you are still ok. We are back running fevers again and coughing way too much.

Glad your getting well. I could stand to lose a few pounds--- just don't want to use the 'rona to do it...

   Just got back to Wickenburg. My daughter wants to be on rifle team so she is going into public school.

   Family was in Brasil for several months. I went down for a few weeks. Stayed on Fazenda in Campo Algeria. Nice to be disconnected from the world. Last two weeks we were in Goiania to take care of some legal issue and we hoped to travel a bit--- but things were just not lining up.

   Take care of yourself.

RD hope you don't have the weight loss like I have, 16 lbs of muscle gone. I look like a Afgan refugee. 

 

 

Now that you mention it, I've noticed for weeks a looseness around the belt. Don't want to weigh myself. I try to keep any extra lb. (or lbs.) I can get.

Recently, new info on Delta variant, is you get more sore throat, headaches, and a runny nose. If you have vaccine or antibodies from other variants, it will be only a mild infection. We have Delta variant going around our state at the moment.

Cooling trend here, we were getting weather alert warnings for high air pollution, smoke from fires out west combining with a higher humidity/heat index over the state.

Saw one looked exactly the same on TV the other day. They were exploring the McKezie watershed of New South Wales Australia.
