    great photos!!!!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Midday Friday I decided to head over to the (Permission~ ) Cow pasture, despite mediocre results off late ~ Not to give in I returned yet again ~

    Perfect day ~ cold breeze but the temps soon convinced me to to remove the under shirt ~ as i know the breeze will be a non-entity once i go over the rise at the Western end ~

    ( BTW ~ When I go out I like to make it a Golden rule to pay homage to the MD Gods and the Bush Spirits and dig a minimum of 5 Lantana bushes out each time I go Bush! )

    As a kid, I was always finding thrupences in the garden-so small and light they were very, very easily lost and the one value of coin not continued after decimalisation! Condition of any coin will greatly vary the value with collectors as well as rarity...
