    Im struggling to fit any searching in at the moment,but its brilliant to see someone else at it! keep up the good work,your finds suggest a realy exciting site.Looking forward to more
    Cheers, but the wife is getting a bit twitchy at the moment so may have to take a break for a week or so.
    I tried the " ..but I'll combine the detecting with walking the dog so 2 birds with one stone.." argument but his walks were lasting 4 hours so that didn't work very well

    Try the old 'Why don't you go visit your mother for a weekend?' trick. Works for me quite nicely

    Oh yeah, until your mother rings and asks your wife to speak with you, then the doghouse looks very inviting instead of a quick kick in the gonads, DONT DO IT HARRY , HE'S LEADING YOU
    ASTRAY

    Used that one to death now, currently on the "you really don't see enough of your sister these days". Other problem with that is that the in-laws live about 500 yards from the field where the B-17 came down. So a good incentive to see the outlaws - even it is only for 5 minutes while I dump my bag and head out for a "walk"

    Of course you could try the 'How would you like to go shopping in London for the weekend? I think it's time you got a load of new clothes' or, along similar lines, 'I've booked you a weekend at the Spa for being such a fantastic wife. 3 days, 2 nights of total pampering !'.

    Of course both have inherent cost implications but what the heck ! At least you can go digging I've used both
