As things are a bit slow and peeps in general are feeling a bit ‘down’ I thought I’d show you something to raise a smile.
Hubby, having more time to spare, often has a pictorial stroll down memory lane. This morning he showed me the attached pic and it brought back so many happy memories of my earlier years detecting.
The pic was taken in response to someone’s suggestion that in an effort to gain detecting permissions I should go on my horse, like a Knight in armour and hold them to ransom till they agreed ! :?

Looking at it now I can see where I’ve lost nearly 2 stone from :shock: :lol:
Hope you enjoy :thumbsup:

A horse drawn detector, interesting.
Great photo Val.

Love that Val. Great fun! I suspect false signals from that tack though! :lol:

Just looking for my favourite pic of the horse (couldn’t find it !) but came across this one.

Very appropriate for today, if a little irreverent. No. 1 Son sent it to me last year. He and a friend had a ride out on their bikes one Sunday and pulled into one of the bikers favourite stops and saw this parked up. Seems there were a group of ex-servicemen riding from stop to stop collecting for one of the charities. Note the writing on the tank :thumbsup:

How about driving along and passing that ! :shock:

Thanks for sharing your horse picture.
When I saw it I thought you have found the answer to my dodgy hips, horse back detecting, I imagined two detectors attached to saddle bags to cover more ground, great! Then I had the realisation that I would need to get on and off the horse every time I got a signal not so great I’d never climb back on.

That was the main reason that I stopped riding. Riding in the country is great but has draw backs, they’re called gates. Not all horse friendly. You just have to get off to open the darn things. That and the fact that both horse & rider had arthritis :thumbdown:
He was a grand old fella, could take him anywhere and feel safe.
I think if I’d asked him to go detecting he’d have gone with me and enjoyed it.

Morning Steve. Once more into the breach !
During one of the many ‘showers’ the other day I was walking around, talking to my Sister on the phone, I looked out the window and couldn’t believe my eyes. Being high we can see across the valley and see the weather coming towards us. What looked like a narrow wall of water was heading our way.
I’ve never heard or seen rain like it. It was horrendous.
It was so heavy the water was gushing over the spouting like a waterfall. After it had passed I looked across at the fields on the opposite side of the valley. There were rivers running down them.
Imagine trying to detect in those conditions ! I don’t think so.

Il never complain about the hot weather again :lol:
