    John,

    I was in California for a week, but down in San Diego, and as we flew out, we went over the mountains and the fires stretched as far north as we could see, absolutely heartbreaking! I hope you're staying safe.

    All the best,

    The Tale of Purty Sue

    Well Purty’s used by western lads
    For gorgeous gals they love.
    And Sue for sure, was beauty pure
    An angel from above.

    Now, Purty Sue, a charmer true,
    The miners tried to win.
    But Sue was sure of her love pure,
    And never did give in.

    For Sue you see, from Tennessee,
    A pretty southern belle
    Yearned for a man named Cougar Dan
    She loved him all could tell.

    A handsome man that Cougar Dan,
    And muscled through and through.
    For life is tough in mountains rough,
    Kind, only to the few.

    But Cougar Dan, that mountain man,
    Had lived his life plumb wild.
    And Purty Sue, though gorgeous true,
    To him was but a child.

    Well, mountain Dan, good with a pan,
    The gold came easy true.
    So folks would flow where he would go
    To find gold nuggets too.

    One winter’s day, he hit good pay,
    And brought that crowd to town.
    The whiskey flowed, his friends all glowed
    As drinks were pounded down.

    Yet in that mass of rank and loud
    A brute, the name of Jack,
    He hated Dan, the mountain man,
    And went on the attack.

    Dan’s fists they flew, they landed true.
    Well, Dan sure hammered Jack.
    But Jack the brute, the crude galoot,
    Commenced a foul attack.

    To cheat in life, he’d hid a knife
    Inside his minin’ pants.
    He slid it out, that dirty lout,
    And used it like a lance.

    With straightened arm, he did his harm.
    Dan slumped down to the floor.
    A scream was heard when Sue got word,
    For Dan was lookin’ poor.

    The town was glum, their best-loved chum
    Was starin’ at the grave.
    But Sue was true, knew what to do
    For Dan her man to save.

    Now Sue you see, in Tennessee,
    A nurse she was, it’s true.
    In Civil War, her gruesome chore
    Was healin’ soldiers too.

    Her father dear she’d followed near
    (A surgeon next to none)
    He’d taught her right to win the fight,
    And victories she had won.

    But Cougar Dan, her mountain man
    Was surely doin’ poor.
    She did her best, then lay to rest
    Beside him on the floor.

    She had a dream, and it would seem
    An angel in the room
    Held back the night with splendid light
    And drove away the gloom.

    ‘Twas Christmas Eve, if you believe
    In miracles and such,
    Her Cougar Dan, the mountain man
    Was blessed so awful much.

    Next Christmas day, in every way,
    Dan sure awoke with life!
    And then he knew that Purty Sue
    Would have to be his wife.

    So filled with Joy, the town of Roy,
    Commenced to hold a feast.
    And all were there without a care,
    From greatest to the least,

    To celebrate the wedding date
    For Purty Sue and Dan
    The sweetheart that the miners loved,
    Yes, every single man.

    On Christmas day so far away
    In peaks all filled with snow,
    A love took hold in mountains cold,
    So Dan the man could know

    His angel love sent from above
    That saved him from his doom
    Was Purty Sue, his love so true
    There standin’ in the room.

    All the best to one and all,

    Lanny

    As usual enjoyed the poem and looking forward to more upcoming sassy nugget adventures from this year. This year the wildfires and bush ban here was a damper and limited time outdoors.
    Staked some new ground and although no nuggets were found the results so far are encouraging. I'm looking forward to next year to collect samples for Mobile Metal Ion assay.........

    A very Merry Xmas & all the best in 2018 to all.........

    Lanny my holiday season has taken on a new meaning as I've come down with the flu & pneumonia. Spent Christmas alone trying to sleep. Starting to come out of it as meds take hold but its a slow process so, a lot like prospecting and both fevers are real though I do not usually require drugs during the gold fever.......63bkpkr

    Yikes! You be super careful with that pneumonia Herb; it's nasty stuff, so take all of your meds, get your rest, and above all else, get better! After all, you'll need your strength for your next grand adventure into those gorgeous mountains of yours.

    All the best, and get well soon,

    Thank you gentlemen - I am taking care of me self and I constantly have the next trip in my mind, where I'm going and what I'm going to be doing. I found this spot where the "old time miners" camped that I want to detect and then there are miles of canyon wall to prospect along. Again, thank you for the kind words and likes and I am paying attention to my pills with only one more to take this evening. I'm making an appointment to see the doc as the chest is still rattly...................63bkpkr

    I hope everyone has a happy new year, and I trust Christmas was a nice time as well.

    The next story I'll be posting is "360 Degrees of Gold", and it's about a great time I had detecting this last summer where I started to doubt my detector, but soon found out I was absolutely wrong.

    All the best in 2018,
