Scored my 3rd double digit day of the year, and 13th of my career. Double digit days are better than s^H, well, better than a good day at work.
This is a new site, a large door knocking site. The good news is that I got permission. The bad news is that I got it for only today. Are you kidding me? I’m no Goes4Ever sort of door knocking god, but I’ve done a fair bit of it, and the experience is either, “get lost”, or “no problem, come whenever you want”. Who says “yes, but only for today”?
My guess is that it is someone who wants to say no, but doesn’t want to to your face, so they say no in general, but yes to your face. Who knows? Said the land had other users, and it would not be appropriate for me to be there when they were there. What? So I says what about other days when said users are not there? He didn’t want to deal with it, and I felt even my day was at risk at that point, so I thanked him and moved on.
And I went as long as could on the day, and dropped 11 silvers. Site looks good. Too bad only the nighthawks and others of questionable ethics will get the rest of the shiny. Knowing me, I’ll grow a beard and be back in a month. We’ll see. But you take what you can get in this world, and double digit days are sweet indeed. All the silvers are bulk; the oldest is a 1923 merc.
Also scored a pair of silver blings, a sterling heart charm and an abused ring.
