What does a roast platter, hubcap, cake pan, and bucket lid have in common? When you have gold fever, they can serve as gold pans. Between my place and Jan's, my gold hunting companion, we misplaced the gold pans?
I can misplace my car, so it iwasn't entirely surprising.
We had "lifted" three buckets of dirt from a construction site in Murphys a couple of nights earlier and decided to wash it in the creek.
Richard was the lucky one, with a nice nugget. And, he got it with the roasting platter. Hey, whatever works.
The nugget was a good inch long. Now when he tells his friends at home about panning for gold, they'll believe there really is gold in them thar hills.
