We didn’t have our get together the last Saturday in August as our family was at church attending Morgan’s baptism. She is our great grand daughter and daughter of Heather and Mike. A get together and luncheon in our dinning hall followed the service.
On August 8th Bill C. and I water detected at the Gladstone beach. I only found 2 coins but I also found 2 sterling silver rings. Bill C. found 21 quarters (12 quarters in one hole.) He ended up with a little over 5 dollars.
On August 10th Bill C. and I water detected the Escanaba beach and I only found 6 or 7 coins but Bill C. found a couple dollars in coins and he also came up with 2 rings. He thinks one is silver and possibly the other may be silver too. He’ll have to get the magnifier out and take a better look.
I’ve been having a lot of trouble with my right knee for the last 3 weeks and I believe it’s a torn tendon. I had arthroscopic surgery done on the other knee some years back and it has the same symptoms. I have a meeting with a surgeon the end of this month and will get the x-ray results.
With the rising price of gold, I wish I had more. I’ve only found 3 gold rings so far this year and they were all in the water. I’ve probably passed up several more on land but I mostly run on coins instead of coins and jewelry because my back problem won’t hold up digging pull tabs. You all know the saying, ” If your not digging pull tabs your not finding gold rings, etc”.
We’re thinking about going to the Copper Country again this fall and get some more float copper. We stayed 6 nights this last spring and had a ball, so I’m looking forward to another outing.
We also have a couple scout camps an the agenda along with a few bean and potato fields. I hope I’m healed up after the knee surgery so I can go!!!
That’s it for now, I’ll keep in touch……..Remember to COVER YOUR HOLES !!
