I believe that I told you that I belong to the G.P.A.A. (Gold Prospectors Association of America) and they use terms in the prospecting and mining hobby and industry that may not be familiar with a lot of non-prospector type people. Most everyone knows what a gold pan is (no, it ain’t a gold colored pan but we like to see lots of “color” in it). The word color in prospecting terms means traces of gold in the pan or sluice or whatever you are using to prospect or work a claim. We all like to see gold of any kind but nuggets are really great and for those of us who like to swing a metal detector, you want to find some “placer” gold. Now, unless you are a seasoned prospector I bet you pronounced that all wrong. It is not pronounced like it is spelled. It should have been spelled “plasser” because it rhymes with “passer”. Anyway, it is gold found loose in sand or gravel deposits. And do you know what a “Gold Miner” is? He is a liar with a hole in the ground. OK, enough of that, but I am going to tell you what I had for supper last night in prospector language and I want you to tell me what I had, OK?
Last night I enjoyed some whistle berries with grilled chicken, and afterward I had both some Adam’s Ale and a little later I had some Belly Wash.
