My best find from DS 167
« on: October 03, 2016, 03:47:49 PM »
Some of you will know that at the Ardkinglas Rally I lost my (almost new) Garrett carrot. Of course I was disappointed but comforted by the support of fellow detectorists who offered to keep an eye out for it throughout the day. Some later posted sympathetic messages regarding this loss and one kind member lent me a pin pointer  for the afternoon.
Of course I spent several hours retracing my steps and I even bribed small children with the promise of a cash reward for safe return.

By mid week I realised I would never see it again so I bought a new one from Regtons and had it delivered to my work on Friday.

Imagine my surprise at yesterday's Broxburn dig, when it mysteriously appeared in my finds bag! Yes, the same finds bag that I had been wearing all the time when I was searching for it. I don't know how this happened but I might have to stop getting blonde highlights.

Thanks for the help and support everyone. Erin, I will make it up to you!

It's ok to stop laughing now    :D :D

Don't worry Kirsty  -  any bleedin' idiot could have done it!

Now you have two carrots, you can afford to lose one if you like!

At least it kept the kids busy, gave them something to do keeping them occupied.
