Twas the end of a season
And all through his house,
Not a beep from a target,
Not a peep from a mouse.

The coils and search rods
were on tables and chairs,
on desktops, on couches
fronts porches and stairs.

Some cardboard from Turkey
With stamps for the Post,
And mail from Australia
With gold nuggets to boast.

A look at the wall,
showed detectors galore,
in the closets and bedrooms
and strewn on the floor,

An old shoebox held,
some old coins and some nails,
and a list of detectors
he sure ought to sell.

A worn binder was open,
Across Monte’s lap,
Full of coins and old tokens
And superfluous . . . . . . stuff.

Monte was dreaming
Of lost days of yore,
While his eyelids were resting
And he let out a snore.


A knock at the door
and a ring of a bell
And Molly a barkin'
at the stranger from . . . heck.

It was OregonGregg
with a White's hat in hand
and a new fangled V 3
and a big can of spam.

There to cook breakfast
and then hit the road
for ghost towns and tokens
and treasures untold.

With roadmap in hand
and a case of the Dew
Ole Gregg and now Monte
towards Portland they flew.

. . . . . .

On Fors CoRe and Relic
On Boomer and Molly
How long has it been since
we've seen Monte so Jolly ?

The Freeway and cities
blew by oh so fast
Before you could blink
it was Portland at last.

And there at the exit
sat zincoln all smiles
with a bright polished V3
and a few extra coils.

To the Park they did drive
and when Monte got out
he looked at the V3
and started to shout.


Just One More Good Target Before I Go . . . .
