The wife and I were doing the weekend yard sale thing
and in this old Lady had basically emptied out her storage shed and was begging folks to take it all away.
Anyway, propped up against the fence I see this
Now I don't know anything about metal detectors... only that back when I was a kid I was convinced if I had one I could dig up all kinds of buried
Pirate treasure... You know... Seeing as how Pirates were so common here in Western Colorado...
So I ask...
"What do want for it?"
"Make me an offer?"
"I would if I had any idea what their worth?"
that is when my beautiful, smart, lovely wife jumps in--
"Oh I saw one of those for sale at Wal-Mart over Christmas for like 20 or 30 bucks..."
and I stumble out.
"Well in that case--- will you take $10 bucks?"
She nods holding out her hand and I place two 5's in her palm.
Like I said I don't know anything about metal detectors ... Other than while this one is very dusty from years spent in her shed--- it looks to be in
pretty good condition...So this morning I hit the Internet to learn something about what my ten bucks bought me.

Now that's what I call COOL MAN COOL!
So now I'm going to have to order me a pirate hat and eye patch, sign on a hardy crew of scurvy mates and hit up the back mountain trails to dig up
all that buried gold ----
Well maybe I should download the instruction manual first?
Edit to add...
I think there must be buried gold in my living room as it "BEEPS" at almost everything I point it at!
