    I'M NOT SURE, BUT I THINK IT'S AGAINST THE RULES FOR UNICORNS TO PLAY WITH MATCHES.


    PLEASE DO TELL THE OTHER STORY.

    Whew! Good thing!!! Can you imagine a shovel or some digging item getting hung up in the pin and pulling it out??

    Glad it was a "safe" dig!! (though, I might have had to change my underwear)

    Re: Misc data and adventures of a Tayopa treasure hunter

    It's amazing how kiddies seem to be completely unaware of danger, on reflection you do wonder how some of us came through the War all in one piece.
    It was the night that our neighbouring City of Coventry was almost 'raised to the ground'. It started early in the evening, and incidentally it was the night that an incendiary bomb landed on our house, which we were in at the time. Being early evening, we hadn't as yet made our nightly trek down into the Anderson shelter. The bomb fortunately had landed in a bedroom and hadn't burned through to the downstairs. As you can imagine, in times like these, friends and neighbours are linked together just like one big family. So knowing that my Father was away, neighbours came to our rescue and helped Mum and us kiddies out, and down to the shelter. That night was pretty awful for us all, we were close to Coventry which meant that we 'had ' it as well. A memory that will always stay with me, was looking out during the night, and the whole of the sky as far as you could see was glowing red. The street that we lived in was pretty well all demolished, and yet we kiddies never felt any fear, strange eh!!!
    Next morning the kiddies of our street that were left, went outside to 'play' our favourite game which was to find the biggest piece of schrapnel, and to look and see who's house had been bombed. Those bombsites were our playground. It was after awhile that we found a bomb, we didn't know if it was unexploded or what, we just knew it was fun to throw stones at. Lordy, if only we had known the danger. Well my Father arrived home after a night of fire fighting, and saw us kids playing around this 'thing' As you can imagine all hell broke loose, the street was quickly evacuated as Dad alerted the authorities. After that I just cannot remember what they did, I guess it was de-activated. It's hard to imagine now, how lucky our family was to come through the War physically unharmed. I cannot honestly say mentally as well, because there are just some memories that never leave you.



    I do have other tales as well but I don't want to outstay my welcome in this TH tales thread.


    regards 'U'

    HI britland broad, You have been given permisson to speak, now you are 'ordered' to post.

    Don Jose de La Mancha

    p.s what you have posted is a part of ww-2 that is never mentioned and should be. How was the chow for example ? Bathroom facilities during an air raid? What does the concussion of a near by explosion feel like in a shelter?

    We need all phases and types of stories in here. That sheep luvin, would be cowboy from sheep land, reminds me of that old saying about looking for a wife, "sometimes the looking is far better than the knowing".

    This, coupled with Beth telling me that he can out run her, is giving me uncomfortable thoughts. heehee.--

    Really - how did we survive our childhood? The words that scared my mother the worst was "Mom, I hurt myself". (this was reserved for things like almost severing my big toe and sledding into a huge slab of rock).

    Boy - talk about good old fashion fun!

    PS - Jose, he is younger than me - he can run faster!!!

    NO! Gol-dang it she will be telling all the most embarrassing parts, and leaving out all those great heroic-machismo type deeds!

    Don't listen to her about how fast the running is either, it always depends on just what is chasing ya!

    More please, and this means you too Unicorn!

    ProspectorMikel,

    2 things I can say to that.

    1. Flying objects travel faster than you can run (as in a rolling pin)

    2. You gotta go to sleep sometime.......................................... ...(as in - You're right honey, now go to sleep.............)

    Re: Misc data and adventures of a Tayopa treasure hunter

    Those were my thoughts rockhound, but Don Jose gave the go ahead for the stories. I still kinda wonder if it's the right place though. Mind he did 'order' me to go ahead, but then I don't take orders from a man very easily.. eh what!!!! .. ..

    Re: Misc data and adventures of a Tayopa treasure hunter

    I tried posting this story a couple of days ago but when I hit the post button it must have flown off to e-mail heaven because it never showed up here. If it ever decides to come back to earth, you will know why the same story showed up twice.LOL.

    Some of you older folks might remember the old Walt Disney shows about Davey Crockett. I remember one show where Davey tried to grin a bear to death. Something similar happened to me about 20 years ago when I was on a treasure hunt close to the Mississippi River.

    Back in those days I did carry a gun when I went down by the river. Snakes give me the creeps, and carrying a six shooter seemed like a more manly thing to do than rolling up into a ball and sticking my thumb in my mouth whenever I saw a snake. I was going into a pretty secluded area to do some detecting at the site of an old river town that was destroyed by a flood back in the 1850s. When I was a kid, a treasure hunter had found a pot full of California gold coins in that area so I thought I would see if I could get lucky. About a mile away from the river was a small parking area that was put there for hunters and fisherman. There was another car there but I didn't see anyone else around. I parked next to the other car and got out to get my equipment out of my trunk. As I was pulling my metal detector and pack out of my trunk, I heard some guy say, "What the hell do you think you're doing?" I looked up to see a guy standing there with a shotgun leveled at me. If you have ever been in a similar situation, you know that your mind can process information very quickly. In the matter of a couple of seconds I noticed a few things. The back part of my car was between his shotgun and me. He had his shotgun levelled at me with his right hand and in his left hand he held three dead squirrels. He had a single shot shotgun. Right away I figured he wasn't too serious or he would have dropped the squirrels and used both hands to cover me. If he did take a shot, he would have hit my car and then I would have had six shots at him. Like I said, just a second to process this. The only thing I could do was smile. LOL. I gave that guy the biggest grin I had and said,"Hi. How are you today?" His jaw dropped and as he lowered his shotgun he said,"Mister, I'm really sorry. I thought you were breaking into my trunk." I looked at his car and saw that they were similar in size and the same color. If I had panicked and gone for my gun, it could have been bloodier than Dodge City on a Saturday night. As it was, we shot the bull for a couple of minutes and went our own way. He got to go home and cook up his squirrels and drink a couple of beers, and I got to fight my way through the brush and mosquitos for several hours and not find a darn thing. LOL.
