    What a day - sorta...

    I'll try and keep this short and sweet. Yesterday, found out my job was closing down. To say I was annoyed would be an understatement - especially the way things are right now. Especially after leaving a very good job to take what was supposed to be a "fantastic opportunity". HA! Then I spent four hours in the hospital last night with a recurring heart problem - apparently I have something called "SVT" : Supraventicular tachycardia. I'm still here though, so I can't complain. Gotta' do the follow-up thing and all that.

    Anyway, I woke up early and decided to take the new S.E.F. (10X12) out for it's first swing. While I'm still learning the SE, I can say I definitely like this coil over the stock 10.5 slimline. I headed over to an old home site that I've been to once before with no luck. I was determined to pull some kind of keeper today but didn't expect this - a 1928 S Standing Liberty Quarter. I was sticking to a very small area and just trying to listen to everything the machine was "telling me" - I dug just about everything I could. Pulled three memorials, some screw caps, this strange iron ball (grapeshot?) and the SLQ. I'll be hitting it again possibly tomorrow - hopefully there's more goodies to pull from the depths... 8)

    Enjoy the pics and thanks for stopping by - keep on swingin' y'all...

    "The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere"

    The best cure for any ailment is finding Silver and/or CW Relics. Good Luck DD and HH.

    Way to go with the excellent keeper Andy!

    Just like before, when one door closes another opens.

    Glad you were able to come down to the meeting Tuesday! I hope you had a good time. And of course, you have my number, call any time!

    Andy,
    Sorry to hear about the tough times you are going through, as I know you are a single dad too. I really hope things turn around quickly for you. As far as your health, I told you before I am NOT giving you mouth-to-mouth so don't even think about it.
    Congrats on the SLQ Dude. Those are tough to find.
    I like that Italian dinner roll you posted too.

    Sorry about the health issue and the job issue.

    I'm glad you got out. What a fantastic find!!!

    I wonder about the performance of that coil is compared to the Pro coil. I've been thinking about picking up a 10 x 12. Then the other voice in my head tells me "You don't listen to what the Pro coil is telling you, what makes you think you'll listen to the new one?"
    God bless our veterans! Thank you for your sacrifices!
