It was a fun day, and maybe the last for the year.

I was too worn out and in pain last night to get on the computer and reply. Naturally I was hoping for a nice Trade Token or an older coin, especially silver to pester Gregg a bit. All I got that was older was a thin 10¢ Play Money 'Dime' that locked on very close to where a silver Half-Dime would read .... and then I had my hopes dashed. sad smiley Oh well, it gave Gregg something to tease me about.

My house cleaning had me storing things somewhere for future use .... but I am not sure where I put my knee brace. I'm trying to find it this morning as I over-worked my bad knee yesterday, even to the pointy that I am not able to make it out today for what is likely the last decent weather day of the year. sad smiley

I think the folks who do the 'snowbird' thing this time of year have it figured out. Escape the cold wintry weather and be down were you can usually enjoy more detectable climate conditions.

I would have headed out today with Gregg, Rob and Darby but Miss Rikki & I are staying home and mending. She came up limping by the time we got home, and I started out that way, as usual, and the detecting outing didn't help my left knee, to be sure.

So they are off to 'Rippville' and we'll see how they do. Gregg working his Nokta FORS Relic & CoRe devices, Darby with an Equinox 800 w/11" coil, and Rob is using my Tesoro Bandido II microMAX w/6" Concentric coil. At high noon today it's 34° in 'Rippville' and calm to maybe a 3-5 mph east wind and fair to mostly cloudy. Hopefully they will all enjoy some success.

Matter-of-fact I'm kind of hoping Gregg might stumble across one of those very rare, thin, and challenging 10¢ 'play money' coins. tongue sticking out smiley I sure don't want to be one up on him in that category to end the year.
