Fantastic displays AND pictures! :wink: You're a smart cookie! :thumbsup: When folks find out what it's all about, then they don't seem to mind if we dig a few holes here and there. :wink:

Super post, MM! 8)

Thanks GA.
I have a lot more, but I can't believe they were all found in just a two year period. Ya gotta love it.
Maybe some day I'll figure out how to take a video like you do. ;D I love those.

Very Cool Post Buddy! It is always gratifying to get to show others the relics and coins that you have saved from the ground! Good job Doug! :wink:

I'm sure I'd come up a bit short as mayor, plus I haven't found a good pocketwatch yet. ;D :wink:

I'm going to keep pushing on that. I would love to be a part of the relic recovery at that church.

Thanks for the nice replies everyone. Not one of the three towns I hunt have a museum yet. Hopefully soon. :thumbsup:

Doug,
Very funny that we are doing the same thing! They are having a book signing at our local library promoting the book "Images of Westlake" Ohio. They did it a little differently. They built a fancy new library (supposedly ranked in the top 5 of the nation) and they are signing the book in front of a display case. Guess who's metal detecting finds are in the display case? :wink: ;D Yep, Nate and mine. I've got some pictures but it's been so busy here I haven't made it a priority to post..... Maybe after prom, graduation, track season, etc... ::)

Bob,
Very cool. Your book cover looks the same too. ;D Can't wait to see your pictures. Just blow off work one day and get them posted please. Your TN family is way more important than work you know. :wink:
I actually found you in that group of running kids too. :thumbsup: :tongue3:
Hope all is well,
MM
