    Do you ever get the feeling?

    You ever feel that your neighbor hood, thinks of you as the village idiot, when ever they see you out detecting?
    Sometimes i see curiosity in peoples faces as they go by. And some stop and ask the usual question. If i really find stuff with that thing?
    And then there's the ones, that by the look on their faces, and without their saying a word.
    You know their thinking that; That idiots doing it again. And to them you might as well be out there swinging a stick to and fro.

    I can't really say that it bothers me. Just curious if any one else notices it, or senses it.

    Do you ever?

    Cracks me up sometimes how people can be giving the stink eye like they do.

    NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT,

    ? ?I did Get a Wierd Look From the Girl at RADIO SHACK last night when I walked into the Store Carrying My EXPLORER?

    It's only the 3rd. Time I'v done that.

    ? ?But I figure, it's easier to Try Parts In the Store, Then Buy them & maby end up Returning Them.

    My parents thought I was crazy till I found some good stuff, like that watch, or anything marked sterling

    I could care less about what people think People do get curios around here because im the only one who detects the town.

    One guy thought I was creeping around with a gun lol, then I showed him it beeped over metal and he was a little embarrassed

    If I get the stink eye, I figure they just don't know me well enough. Some days I do other things. "Other" things not "better"

    About half the people I see think I'm running a weed eater. They also probably think they're going deaf because they can't hear it! Some smarta$$ said, "That sure is a quiet weedeater"! I responded, " You can't hear it because I'm wearing earmuffs"! He just got this puzzled look on his face and walked away. Another one saw me detecting at a school and said, "Aren't you ashamed for stealing little kid's lunch money"? I told him. "No, but I am a little ashamed of stealing your old lady's diamond ring"! He just sulled up and huffed off. Fortunately most of the people I talk to are very curious and inquisitive. More than one has said they had always wanted to try metal detecting and wanted to know how much it would cost to get started. My neighbors kinda' look at me strange sometimes when I am out practicing in my coin garden. But, every once in a while one will come over and want to know if I think I can find something they lost. One lady lost something in her car and wanted to know if she could borrow my metal detector. I loaned her my pinpointer after explaining it wouldn't work in the car because it was encased in metal. I forgot what she was looking for now but she found it! JIM

    here is what you do.. you get all kinds of old coins gold,silver.. make like a cache and take a pic of it all make it look real nice.. then Carry that pic on you when you go out detecting and when someone ask if you find stuff.. you take that pic out and say look at this cache i found in the ground it is worth $7.000 and that is not my best find ..i cant tell you my best find it is still in the legal system..
    A LOST COIN SHOULD NOT BE FORGOTTEN
