What did the old coin say to the metal detector? …. Don’t take that tone with me!

- You can never be sure of the sexual orientation of a metal detector…. because it swings both ways!

 BBC News headline: A haul of Anglo-Saxon treasure recently unearthed in Staffordshire has been valued at £3.285m. The money will be split between the detectorist and the landowner.
Metal detecting: what a sad pathetic hobby. Loser…..

 In the world of metal detecting, my uncle's at the top of his field.......all alone.

 So a 50 year old man finds millions of pounds worth of Anglo-Saxon gold using his metal detector in a field. The government declare the find as 'treasure' but will pay him a reward for its discovery.
Why didn't he keep his mouth shut and send it piece by piece to Cash 4 Gold?

I thought I'd hit the jackpot when my metal detector started beeping in the back garden.
But I was disappointed when I realized that it just my wife's wedding ring...

I like to tape tin foil to the base of my grandad's metal detector using black tape.
It's hilarious!

 My last girlfriend was such a gold digger, She constantly humiliated me and I finally had to break up with her.
I'm not going to be seen with anyone who brings a metal detector every time we go to the beach.

 'Boy, Three, Strikes Gold with Metal Detector'. I, myself made headlines like this once.
''Man, 27, Strikes Wife with Metal Detector''... She didn't have my car keys after all, just a bottle top and a kit kat wrapper.

    You need to get out detecting, need to see your finds!

    1. Yep lol, that's my fave one.

      Been really busy this week with painting and decorating and other stuff around the house which has been left well overdue. But at last after today I can ease off a bit and get some detecting in. A good weather forecast for tomorrow down here so here's hoping.

  3. hehe good luck, that's the problem with summer, nice to go out detecting but so many other things the missus wants you to do :)

  4. Would you Adam and Eve it. I was down on the floor giving the skirting board its final glossing, went to get up,,TWANG,,,, my backs gone. Hobbling around on a stick here now. What's the chances of this clearing up by tomorrow morning. Lucky enough its my night off from work but its the detecting trip I was planning for tomorrow I'm gutted about..
    Bleddy decorating, think I'll leave it to the professionals in future.

  5. Doh, hope it gets better quickly! DIY very bad for you!
