For those of you who aren’t subscribers to The Searcher magazine, first of all, why not? It’s a great read. Some folks in the US may think oh it’s a UK magazine, and yes it’s published in the UK, but the articles and reviews are universal and of interest to detectorists everywhere.
Second, the humorous cover photo (of me), which has drawn so much attention–especially from Warsaw Wally (he loves me, he loves me not…), did have a purpose, and its intent was to go along with my article What is it With Detecting and Camouflage? that I understandably wouldn’t post until the magazine had run its full course of readership for the month.
Now that my ethical obligations are met, please feel free to peruse at your leisure the article that accompanied the cover photo that had “Warsaw Wally” in a rage against our machines. Maybe Wally will finally read it too? And for the record Mr. Barford, the background in the other photos are from a farm field in Long Island, NY–totally legal to hunt in this country, and taken at one of the Artifact Detecting Team hunts, sponsored by Minelab, and held specifically to benefit the Southampton Historical Museum click here to see how detectorist’s helped out the historical society.
I was reading Dick Stouts post about Dig Fella’s and decided to give my own blog stats a look. I noticed that although my posts about “Warsaw Wally’s” rantings & rage are not number one on my list of most viewed posts, when he mentions me on his blog it draws quite a bit of traffic to my site.
As this seems to be the week for “Wally Bashing” on the blog scene (and for good reason), see John Howland on Stout Standards Malamute Saloon , John Winters blog , the Classical Coins blog, and Classical Coins blog again. I figured I would give him a mention here also.
Since Barford hasn’t bashed me yet on his blog this week (not that I’m aware of anyway), I can’t bash him back, but I can, however, address the rumors.
I’ve received a few emails where the authors have stated Barford, aka “Warsaw Wally” is a huge fan and admirer of mine, and has a crush on me. They have gone on to suggest his rage stems from the frustration of not being able to date me, due mostly to the distance factor–Traveling from Poland to the US being a huge obstacle in such an endeavor (but I think if he loved me he would find a way…just sayin’).
Although the rumors of Wally’s admiration and crush have yet to be proven, I will say that I have always liked my men a little on the feisty side. And while the thought of being Mrs. Barford, along with the oh so predictable detectorist -vs- archaeologist matches which would certainly ensue gets the erotic part of my mind going; I don’t think it would work.
As most men who wish to maintain harmony are aware, women are always right. I would end up having to leave the relationship because the challenge would surely fade.
If you add Wally’s preference for donning 80’s attire & his habit of wearing stripes with plaids into the mix, well… I think you can see where all this is going… Sorry Wally.
