The Golden Child Makes Her Entrance

Okay, so you know I’ve been really hammering the mid tones.  Yes, it takes a little time and you have to pay.  You pay by taking the time to learn those mid tones.  They are stinkin tricky.

Well, today I told my wife, “Yep, it’s time to get gold.”  Now, I have been saying this for the last couple of weeks.  But it’s really a matter of time.  You have to believe that.

So we strategized for a bit about location.  We settled on a park where a lot of foreigners play.  They have a penchant for the yellow metal and don’t mind playing with it on.  So, I hit a soccer field and worked it super methodically.  Back and forth on the grid.  Yep, you have to be methodical and smart.  Most people think you just go out there willy nilly.  Nothing could be further from the truth – believe me!

I was digging the typical junk.  Pulltabs, scrap metal, etc.  As I was moving away from the goal area and about to hit the eighteen yard box, I got a nice repeatable signal bouncing a little from 43-46.  So, of course, I’m thinking, “Pulltab.”  Seriously, same exact signal that I have dug probably 100s of times before.  Nope, this time it was the sweet, noble, yellow metal.

I call her the golden child.

Seriously, I did not expect to see 14k on the back of this.  I have found lots of similar jewelry for kids – all junk.  Not gold in the single lot.

But it’s great to finally get rewarded for all that work.  You have to have real perseverance and delayed gratification in this hobby.  And now, I’m ready for more GODE.

Oh yeah, the necklace is junk.
