  1. The gully I'm trying to work now is at the edge of my patch. When I first found gold there the water was still where I was standing on the pics in sharing finds. About the second day I saw the last four feet of one of these snakes slide into the water. That's the big worry about working where the water has gone down. A snake this size could come charging out of the water faster than you can run even if you were looking at it. I carry a flip out knife in my right shirt pocket in case I ever need it.
  2. I've had three snake strikes. First one hit my all leather boots at least 6 times before I could move away from him. Other two times the hits were on my leg guards! Two things I always do when prospecting, put on the legs guards and a GPS fix on the truck before I leave that spot. BOTH HAVE PAID OFF!
  3. WHEW, WH THAT'S BAD!
  4. Kat it's obvious somebody made a typo, from the looks of your picture it should be HAPPY BIRTHDAY 34 instead of 44!
  5. Hope you have a Happy three more for the SS payouts!

  10. This beautiful talented young lady is the daughter of one of our moderators. Her name is Natalie McGiffert, her father is our own moderator David McGiffert. Natalie will be performing in gymnastics on 20th Aug. 2016 in Rio de Janeiro at 10:00 AM Brazil time. Now that is two hours ahead of EDT.
  11. Good morning Dave. I'm about 1200 KM North of you. I've been

    going over a olympic schedule every day to try and find a McGiffert listed and so far haven't been successful. This is day 12 Aug. so now I'm getting worried that I missed the "kid" performing.

  13. A Colorado woman after my own heart --- FYI in case you have not seen this from a woman who lives on a small horse ranch in Western Colorado & who is married to a former US Marine. Her son was a US Marine who survived Desert Storm & there is another US Marine + one USAF grandson in her family tree, but evidently she is the only singer. The latest Colorado country song. Hope it becomes #1!!!!! https://www.youtube.com/embed/x2G3wGVAnlQ

    A woman goes to her gynecologist.
     
    "What seems to be the problem?" asked her doctor.
     
    "Something is terribly wrong, I keep finding postage stamps from Costa Rica in my Vagina."
     
    The doctor had a look, then chuckled before she said "Those aren't postage stamps my dear, they're the stickers off the bananas!"
