I've been down here since 1980 and only went to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo 1 time. I only went then because I was in FFA and was judging dairy cows. (Gotta make sure their teets are pointing straight down) Nothing against it, I just dont care to be around crowds. I do remember liking "KISS" though. (DR. Love). Yep its still cold here and weve been sliding around, not like normal south Texas muggyness. But I think I like it better.

Well its friday and everyones favorite whipping boy show is on...unfortunately for me its the ol lady's birthday as well, so i think i wont be partaking in the destruction of television sets or the throwing of remote controls and with only two more shows left to find the "glory hole" this batch of misfits should be running like a well oiled Ford V-8 instead of a toyota on two bad cylinders.......

Lived in Houston since 1984 and have never been to the Rodeo.

 

That's OK :( I've got five children and four grandchildren, and I've never been to a cat show! ;):lol: Terry

Thanks Terry, yeah every now and again its good to get out of the "Bucket Compound" and enjoy a nice steak, Terry, you back in Zona? or still in NY? The weather here in San Diego has been fantastic for the last two weeks so AZ should be real sweet right now.

I'm still sloggin' through frozen snow and Perrier-watered Manhattan Board rooms Bucket, but our AGA guests and instructors are enjoying some nice 65-70 degree days in Congress. Looking forward to heading back out next month for some glad-handing and maybe, a little prospecting! - Terry

Hey Bucket ol’ buddy! Gotta take care of the little lady, show her the ol’ Bucket of fun! :0

 

I gotta new slogan for grandpa instead of, “No guts no glory!” How about, “No brains no gold!”

 

Yeah, it’s been colder than a well digger’s a__ around here… At least for Texas.

 

Yeah I’m getting old, my daughter laughed at me today when I said Glory Hole, she informed me that in certain communities that term of endearment has a whole different meaning.

 

Til next week,

Doc

smile.gif:)smile.gif Doc ... Your retort to your daughter should have been calmly spoken as "Daughter that is true depending on your perspective and priorities ... and ... oh ... btw ... get your head out of the gutter!" Something along that line would probably get a laugh out of her and you would be a more "worldly dude" in her mind! smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

Doc..buddy! I missed the show but i can assume by your "no brains no gold" slogan that my analogy of a well oiled Ford V-8 is out the window, i'm quite surprised that you didnt know the "other" meaning of glory hole, and your daughter had to clue you in, thats a word that you dont want to get used to using in alot of areas these days. Still cold in Texas eh? Its tank top weather here in San Diego, i should go out for some beach detecting but i got to get up early for that and the only thing i get up early for....is fishing!!!

Hey Mike when she told me what group of fellas use that term I just bit the head off a bullet, ate some gun powder and moved on.

 

Bucketman you didn’t miss a thing last night, they found a little gold and screwed up everything they touched, same manure different day.

 

Tank Top season, I thought yer suppose to switch from your detector to binoculars and get there around noon?

 

We’re about to get mugged by the weather next week... In the 70’s.

 

Man, did i hijack this thread or what? Somebody spank me! (That’s a genre joke for this thread)

I watched the show on its second running last night when I got home from the "salt mine." They have drawn a blank on getting appreciable gold out of the all the black sand that they had stockpiled...of course with the slipshod way they have been running the wash plant I can see why. My twisted TV brain came up with a plot line twist that probably won't happen but it would be funny if it did. No one has mentioned the possibility of there being more in the black sand than gold. I have read in some publications that there can be more PGM's in black sand in some Alaska locations than gold. It would be quite a twist if they made their "fortunes" off PGM than the gold...and the PGM's were right there under their noses all the time. They did mention that "gold and other minerals" can be found in the black sand after the magnitite is removed. I have heard of old timers tossing platinum nuggets back in the creek when they got in the way of the gold.

I think it's going to be a cliff hanger to hook us in for next season.

Damn this show is worse than Freddy Krueger, you think its dead and it comes back to get you.

 

Game is over, they lose! They spent their lifes savings $240,000 plus and mined $20,000 gold… They are LOSERS!!!

 

There would be no second season without the fat payday from the Discovery channel! They would all be starved to death, dead!

 

Fatboy Todd winked at the camera last night like hes Gods gift to gold prospecting after they moved tons of earth for two days and came out with 6 oz. of dirty gold. Yeah, hes a real gold prospecting stud… He should write a how-to book.

 

He talked about how much theyve learned, really Todd? Youre still a MORON! He ran out of fuel AGAIN, shut off the water pumps to save fuel??? Then they had to stand around 2 days waiting on the pumps to play catch up… THEN, after standing around with their finger up their butt watching the pumps pump water, they ran out of fuel. Wow, really? And wasted another day waiting on a fuel delivery that should have never came with snow falling!

 

So the last 3 potentially productive days, when they knew they were on the gold, they wasted standing around with their finger up their butt. They wouldnt even have had the 6 in. pump if it wasnt for the old guy that was put in charge by the land owner to watch over them. Or how about the new guy that babied the pumps night and day while the original losers all slept? And then they all had to get in front of the camera and act like they were worried about losing their homes, when they all made more money this year than they ever have in their life, sucking on the discovery channel's sugar tit!

 

A second season, not no, but HELL NO!!!!

 

RANT off!
