The fields will not be the same without you! You have been an absolute pleasure to detect with. Wishing you a happy healthy retirement from digging, and look forward to seeing the fruits of your other hobbies (coin rings? Agates? 😊) Who is Erin going to chase round a field with a lime ice lolly now? 😊😕
Take care and best wishes xxx

Many thanks to you both.  I appreciate the lovely comments, and hope you both prosper and stay well and happy. 

Feels like the end of the world now somehow!

Alas a smiling face withdraws
No more chats for us to pause
A good friend on thee fields was made
Carrying his detector and his spade.

For Bob is a true life gem
The digs will never be the same
I wish he well my good old friend
You're detecting days have come to end

Take care of yourself mate.
As mentioned above the fields will be barren without you there but should you wish to join even for a day I'm sure we could pass a detector your way.
You've always been a happy face and welcoming soul and I'm sad to see you go.
I wish you all the very best in your new adventures whatever they may be.
Keep in touch and stay safe
Your good friend marty

Haven't had the pleasure of meeting you but did buy the wireless headphone package from you for my Ace 400i and it was a excellent to deal with you. 

Take care and enjoy whatever it is you do.

Aww, very sad to see you go  :'(   One of the gentleman of detecting, it was lovely to meet you and chat to you.  Take care whatever you get up to next, and hopefully you'll put in an appearance at a dig in the future  ;D

Bob. Sad to see you go. But if you want can we do a swap. You can take Eleanor and all her accessories if I can have the equinox???  Will even throw in her living  coats for the first year. Joking aside have a happy retirement from the hobby.  I’m looking into dig sites up north so if we are close pop along for a blather one day. All the best and thanks for your support over the years   Jim
