Happy birthday Pat.  Bake a bigger cake this year to hold all those candles.

I got one like that once.  It was stuck to a boulder that someone undermined and they went past it.  I put my GB Pro into the hole and while going down I was drawn to the nugget stuck in some dirt on the boulder.  Easiest nug I ever found.

Yeah Chris, young Tom is in the over fifty club also but I'll let him lament about his aches and pains himself.  We have a great partnership,  He usually finds the gold and I dig it up.  The 5000 really outshines the GB Pro but I can't carry that weight all day and climb hills too.  When I stop having fun I'll give it up but until then look for me in the next wash.

I got into chasing the yeller in the nineteen seventy's and have been off and on ever since.  I'm over eighty now and have slowed a bit but still manage to get out into the hills with my son Tom.  He watches over me so that I don't get into too much trouble and I pop out a nugget or two every once in a while.  The greatest thing that I found is the comradere and downright good fellowship of the folks in the forums. I look forward to the rendezvous and camp outs throughout the year put on by different groups.  I've missed a step or two since my five way bypass but slower is the way to go with a Gold Bug Pro.
