Default Someone recently asked me to toss them a nugget

"Come on" they said, "Post something. Toss us a nugget!"

So I said "Okay!!"

Size 10! Found in the wash with the Excal.

Thanks my friend! Hopefully this hurricane does not pile sand on as the winds here are straight onshore and that's bad for us!

It's been hit or miss. I'm definitely not finding as much this year as last year but there's still a couple months left to try to catch up! If we could just get some offshore winds instead of weeks of all this straight out of the East winds which is bad for us!

Beauty! Hey, theres a guy up here who wants to buy a nugget ring just like that one! He wears a size 11...but it could be sized up I bet....If you want to sell it...I could pitch it to him or put him in contact with you if you would like?

He knows I detect and just last week told me to find one...well, so in a way thanks to you I did!
