Thanks Bob - I have often wondered how long I will be able to detect. A buddy and I take an old WWII / Korean war vet out with us once in a while. He is right around 90 - though he can no longer dig the "hits" he gets. We dig them for him.............We owe him and other Vets so much!!!!!!!!

On this Memorial Day weekend, I'd like to recognize another 'old timer', WW II and Korea hero and treasure hunter, Dr. Roy Roush. I've have the pleasure to have known Roy for over twenty years. They don't build many guys like this any more. Here's to you Roy and 'lonesomebob'. Keep seeking your next goal. http://www.zoominfo.com/p/Roy-Roush/391859195

Thank you lonesomebob as you've added to my spirt of "I'm not ready to quit for a long time"! I'm just heading for 70 in April of 2014 and with enough work on my part and some help from the good lord above I will back on the trail this August heading in for ten days of prospecting including detecting for gold. Recovering from rotary cuff surgery at the moment.

I was born in Detroit and last lived in Livonia just before the family up and left for other places, glad they took me with them but I do miss lake fishing. Real lakes I mean as reservoirs just are not the same. Loved Half Way Lake in the U.P.! Great Pike, Perch and Blue Gill fishing. Keep on swinging fella.............................63bkpkr

Happy Memorial Day to All and a Big Thanks to all the Vets, a shame the place has gone down hill after all the vets have given to keep it "The Land of the Free"!..........................63bkpkr

On being old, I was in a grocery store and an old lady walked in and said, " when I was in my seventies I thought I was old. Now I look back and realize I was actually young." Someone asked, "how old are you?" She said, "95." It made an impact on me and how I think about my age.
