Well, I had blood sucked from my body early this morning and money sucked from my charge card later. But some was for books, so that's okay.

Alright, Mom! Cadging smokes from gutter bums and you all the while supported by that lamp post, down among the dregs of the BS section! You're lucky I got there before the paddy wagon turned the corner or we'd be bailing you out of the drunk tank again! Look at you! Just look at you! The stains on you chin tell me that you've even been chewing tobacco and dipping snoose again! And you reek of cheap beer and booze! You're disgracing the...what? AMOS is still down there somewhere? HE took you there, got drunk, passed out, and you ROLLED him? Hehe...I mean, you rolled AMOS? Waddidya git? Anything good? Ooooooh...he really DOES love his kayak, doesn't he? And he knows the sea in the Biblical sense! What else is in his wallet? C'mon, lemme see!....

The Legend Of The Lost Silver Mine

It was back around 1840, or so the old timers say. Three men were kinda quiet about what they were doing out in the hills, but they seemed to have money. At least, they'd leave town and come back with money. Solid, good money, not notes from some bank that could fold up any minute. They were good folks, and one day they packed up and left town, never to be seen again.

Nobody really knew their names, but that was to be expected at that time and place. Sometimes it was better not to inquire to deeply into someone's past or present.

Word finally sort of drifted back to town that the three men were mining silver. They'd melt it out of the ore and take the raw silver to the city and exchange it at the banks for dollars. The farmers of the area doubted it, and eventually it passed into legend and even then was nearly forgotten.
----------------------------------
Our friend Niles heard about it from an OLD old-timer and he told my brother. Both of them being retired gentlemen (and slightly just this side of totally nuts) they collected some likely-looking rocks. My brother gave half of one and some blue-tinted stuff that appeared to be sandstone to his oldest daughter (who works in a water testing lab) for a quick field test with nitric acid.

The blue-tinted stuff came up as...just an odd colored sandstone. The other, however, seemed to include silver!

So the other half of the likely chunk was sent off for a fire assay. The results are back: 0.003 troy ounces GOLD per ton of rock and 0.004 troy ounces of silver. Seems like the legend may have had some truth to it!

Obviously I haven't told you the location. I will say that it's somewhere in Illinois (!!) in a belt 200 miles wide that stretches from Quincy to Danville.

I don't want to be the cause of The Great Central Illinois Gold Rush Of 2012.

(Note too that the lowest currently profitable level of gold ore per ton of rock is 0.025 in Kern County, California. That's just a teeny bit more than the assay results my brother has!)

I've mined and assayed in Kern County, and I can tell you that that level may be profitable now, but it sure wasn't back then. We busted our asses breaking and digging and picking quartz veins, and melting out samples. The direct path to profitability, which we couldn't use for good reason, is cyanide leaching.

As the song says,

"I nearly starved to death, boys,
He did mistreat me so.
An' I never saved a dollar up...
In the pay of Diamond Joe."

And thanks for the really wonderful Name Post!! It made my heart swell up! LOL

If I were Amos and he were in North Texas, finding a body of water for the kayak sounds like a great idea. Have to avoid all of the power boats, though. Texas is crummy with them.

"What were you doing on the icebreaker?"

I worked with ferries for seven years. Senior Civil Engineer for design, contract documents and project management of construction/maintenance/rehab of docks, harbour protection structures, buildings, passenger and commercial vehicle marshalling, lighting, field electrical distribution structures, pavements, water & sewer, sewage treatment, fuel tank farm containment structures, fuel pipelines, waste oil recovery, others... I jack off all trades.

MV Caribou and her sister ship were lovely punts. Bulbous bow ro-ro ferries that could break nasty ice and knock out 28+ knots in ca'm water. No good for fly fishing tho. GOTTA tell ya this one... dry dock in Halifax... MV Smallwood was on blocks... when we got to the bow and were looking up at this dwarfing monster, one of the lads quipped, "So this is the last thing a seal sees eh?"

I worked in Cape Tormentine, Borden, Yarmouth, Bar Harbor (note incorrect spelling), Digby, Saint John, North Sydney, Port-aux-Basques, Argentia, Lewisporte, and Goose Bay. Had fun.

I was a passenger on several Alaska ferries (note correct spelling and word): MVs Columbia, Fairweather (a catamaran), and others. On one, from Homer to Kodiak, the vehicles were driven onto a lift, lowered (or raised, they could do both!), the lift rotated, and you drove off and parked where they told you. You had to BACK onto the lift to get off. SMALL ferry.

Homer, Alaska is as far West as you can drive in continental North America without getting wet (you could drive there from Key West). It's literally the End Of The Road. The last time I was there the End Of The Road was blocked by a Budweiser truck.

Why do the producers of the most lucid articles in our cultures, BOOKS, give the job of naming the discs to cretins who don't use the same format each time and who misspell the titles and authors? If I don't catch it now, the book won't play in order. i.e., The Martian Chronicals [sic] on six discs, misspelled on four of them.

I'll be out of town for a few days, so please keep MOM afloat if I don't manage to check in. I'll have the laptop and can check there, but no way I want to jam up my phone by accidentally loading the netire MOAB!

"And I love the sound they make, swishing along and swaying gently."

And the lurch and shudder when they hit piled up pack ice followed by the screach of ice along the hull such as a million fingernails on a blackboard amplified to ten.

It IS majestic to watch from the bridge as the ice is broken ahead in ever changing patterns of deep blue branches that separate glistening silver sheets under a full moon.

And I've stood on the bow of a small (<100 people) cruise ship as it picked its way down the Tombigbee River in early morning, the red sun of early morning just high enough to begin dissolving the haze, watching the gentle wake of the ship touch the logs ashore -- and watching the "logs" blink in response....

But the unseen hand of angels,
These death-shafts warned aside,
And the dove of Heavenly mercy
Ruled o'er the battle tide;
In the houses ceased the wailing,
And through the war-scarred marts,
The people strode with a step of hope,
To the music in their hearts.
