Its just a dirty old pile fellas... one day I'll tumble them all clean n wrap them in old greased up period appropriate cloth and bury it again in an old port from the sixties that I'll find at an opp shop somewhere. But I'll bury it somewhere it won't be found for a hundred years or so, that way they'll be all patina'd up again by then. They'd be no use to anyone really... would they ? smile

The old hurry up n wait produced only two coins in the 20 odd minutes at my disposal.... but both were worth it and made me happy.

Yep, was happy with that hunt.... although once I dug the 6d I backtracked where I'd done and dug the 3d about 2 foot back ,.... last two signals I dug for the hunt as well...... Mostly the end tabs off of pulltabs ringing up high today(confounding me). Great to have a two coin hunt like that.... but was called back to reality before I had the chance to persue the hunt further. hmm big_smile
till next time hey !

One of my banana bushes fell sideways about a week ago, the bananas on it still had sharp sides but I harvested them anyways just to see how they go taste wise.... hoping they won't be dry and flowery tasting when ripe.
This is them after a week (they were grass green when it happened)

still two more nice sized bunches comin on yet too.
sun was getting lower as I went. glasses
