    Mayonnaise to capture gold

    Well not what I would use but --- OK so my neighbor's mom is visiting from Hawaii and we got to talking and I thought I would show her some gold I had in a pan.
    She was eating a turkey avo swiss sandwich with loads of mayonnaise (looked real good) All of a sudden she stuck her finger into the pan and swirled it around I was at a loss as what to say or do as some gold stuck to her finger. I think I lost about .2 of a gram.
    So be careful when you show your gold. I didn't have the heart to call her out on it as she is a nice person.

    Hope this makes you smile or laugh then it will be worth the .2 gram.

    haha...That reminds me of one of the first pocket watches I restored. I was so proud of the thing even though it's not really worth anything.

    Took it to show Grandpa......Out comes the pocket knife to open it up!!! Slip........, and scratch across the movement when he pried the back open.

    Stuff like this happens in slow motion too! Almost, like you know exactly what is going to happen before it does Then, you just keep the fake smile till they are out of the room!

    Mayonnaise and Gold sandwiches, hmmmm, never tried them. If they are as good as mayonnaise and tomato sandwiches with salt & pepper on them, then I am in.
