    The Wife joins the knife club and I pull Silver out of the New Permission

    We hurried back to the new permission this evening to hunt from about 7:30 till dark. My wife found the first good find with the gilded pin, has two clasps on back. I had gone back to the wheatie spill spot from yesterday and quickly found another very toasted wheatie. I thought that I could make out 16 for the last two digits. I was really working the area pretty good when I hit a barely repeatable signal, no VDI numbers and was almost questionable on pin point mode. I dug deep and finally got it out, looked nasty and blackish and I wasn't sure what I had. After lightly cleaning it, the silver face of a Merc began to shine thru. My first Merc in like forever! it is a beautiful 41 Merc, great detail unlike the toasted wheaties. I found a couple old memorials that were becoming somewhat toasted and a little clad. It was getting dark and the wife was ready to go so we headed home. She was telling me of this chunk of something that she got in the dark and as she pulled it out, she realized it was her first knife find so she was stoked too. Oh yeah, she officially became a coin spitter too as she tried to read the date on the wheatie. We dug a lot of old pull rings and a few bottle caps with a mix of bullets and cases thrown in. The Merc drought is finally over.

    Ha! That's good stuff trdking, I've encouraged my wife to hunt with me...the only time she showed a blink of interest was when I dug a huge, gold, diamond-encrusted ring...THAT got her attention! Alas, twas Avon...lol. We have a deal now, I don't drag her into the tick-infested woods and she don't drag me into the stores...workin' out fine so far...Ddf

    actually we do just about everything together, she's my best friend as well. we get very competitive when detecting or fishing..loser buys the chocolate frosty at wendys. yeah, I do and go to a few things that aren't my cup of tea but so does she and in the end we get even closer. She beams when she finds something good and the sparkle in her eyes says it all. I don't work anymore but she does and if I find something good, like a ring, she expects pics or for me to come by and show her. she wears the first silver ring that I found. I treat her special and she does me too. never thought this was possible, you know, just happened to other people... hey, I am one of those other people!

    I also envy yr , connection with the Wife, Metal Detecting & Coins Are Cuss Words to my wife & now my 9 year old ( cause he has heard her complain about Detecting & coins since he was born.).

    I may hunt Once a Week , maybe a little more in Fall & Winter Or if I find a 'Hot Spot'.

    It really SUX! Please forgive my 'French' but it does.

    Also I know how you feel , as I dug my 1st Silver Dime (a 54 Roosie) , Since November 2016.
    Congratz to the Wife o the Knife.

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil. D.

    That Said, I judge No Man.
