A Shiny New Detector

Here's a little piece I wrote that was published in the latest issue of The Archaeology and Metal Detecting Magazine:

Be sure to check out Archaeology and Metal Detecting Magazine.  You can usually get your hands on a hard copy at metal detecting events, however due to the Coronavirus pandemic this issue was made available via their website along with previous issues.

This morning, while exiting the truck, my prized Yeti coffee cup slipped out of my hands.  It crashed mercilessly to the ground before rolling to a stop by the front passenger tire.  I sprung into action, attempting to rescue my precious brew as it glug-glug-gluged on to the asphalt.  

"NOOOOOOO not my Yeti!!!" I exclaimed before plucking it up along with the plastic slider lock that was resting a few inches away.  

"Maybe I can fix it," I thought to myself doubtfully. 

I tossed the lid into my purse, resigning myself to the fact that I would soon be faced with a pricey replacement.  Once settled into my office I attempted a thorough investigation of the damage.  As I set the lock into it's proper position something magical happened...  It snapped into place!

"What in the world?" 

I  pulled the slider off and watched in wide wonder as it once again snapped back into position.  

"It's MAGNETIC!"  I exclaimed, with probably too much excitement.

"How cool is that!?"  

I must have washed that the thing a thousand times or more, always struggling to clean under that lock... and this WHOLE TIME I had NO IDEA it was magnetic!

You know, sometimes it really is the small things...
