3-25-11My own cousin, Bob Thomas, down near Little Rock, Arkansas, began detecting Civil War Relics less than a year ago. Recently he's had a run of good luck, sending me photos every other day last week. Finally, a day or two ago, was the most disgusting one, a 51 bullet day !!I was quick to remind him that the family that "digs together" sticks together. Congratulations Bob ![ PS.I'll be down soon ! ]
