It's called Hoppin Through Time! The card that came with it didn't scan well, but it reads:

 

"Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.

 

Time is free, but it is priceless.

You can't own it, but you can use it.

You can't keep it, but you can send it

Once you've lost it, you can never get it back."

 

The back is green.

The knife isn't new..they were out before I started collecting and they come in Red, Pink, Blue and maybe even others. I've tried before to get them on eBay or other trades but not been able to get one so I'm very happy to have been able to get this one...thanks to a trade with Still-Hide.

Part of the reason I hang around the geocoin forum is simply to keep my mind busy; time to sit and think isn't especially good (that's also why I started geocaching.) A bigger reason is the people that frequent the forum...I've had the opportunity to chat and have fun with people (even moderators...I think they're people, but the rumor has never been verified :P ,) that I would never have met or talked with otherwise.

 

Today I started making calls to see which of my wife's family would be making the journey to St. Marys Wed., to toast what should have been my wife's birthday (one of those "0" ones,) and the time we had with her...not a fun day. I stopped long enough to pick up mail at the post office and found a really stuffed mailer...inside a surprise!

This was sent as a thank you, for a thank you I had sent to another forum person (no names...I don't want them getting requests for coins.) I've read so many times about someone receiving a gift, or mystery coin on a day when everything seems bleak. My thanks for your help in making a miserable day, so much better!

What is the coin on the top right? I love it!

 

That beauty is Tsun's Staff of Ra - Raiders of the Lost Cache coin

see this post for the real story of this coin.

 

Whew, good thing I check in here every once in awhile. JUST IN CASE.... most people know I'm fairly sarcastic or just plain ole full of cr*p. :D I am a practical joker and when I write most of the time I'm just being a smart*ss, cause to know me is to love me :P Anyhow, when I wrote that post in the trading thread, I was totally being my typical self which is code for; my blue eyes were brown at the moment. I do know that a couple people thought I might have been serious but weren't sure. I embellished just a little bit on that story. :lol: In truth, they didn't approach me about the coin, they totally ripped off my design and I got no credit for it :(

 

:P:):)

Hahahahaha

 

I have to admit I was thinking "wait, geocoins weren't around in 1980!" so I went so far as to do a google search and found an interview with you where you told the real REAL story. :P But you had me going for at least a minute or two!

 

Regardless, it's at the top of my dream list now. Raiders is my favorite movie EVER. :P

Received these two lovely coins today, I’ve secretly desiring the Abomination coin for a while. Trumpeter Swans were once very common in Ontario only to be wiped out; they have been re-introduced to our area thanks to our American friends and are making a healthy recovery.

 

I seen these majestic swans in flight and gracing the waters, in fact in front of my office which happens to be on Georgian Bay (the very best view and they pay me to work there :D ).

Today coin 3 of Cache Addicts' Flag series arrived. This is a huge coin at 2" with it's 15 stars and 15 Stripes it's a brawny & beautiful tribute to our nations flag.

Each time we get a new version of this flag I'm reminded again of how excited I was the first time I read Atwells' first notes about it, and the anxiety of the weeks between then and the time I made that reservation. It seemed like months. And now each time I pick one up I'm reminded how sweet it was when I dropped that first one (out of the mailer I'd nearly destroyed) into my hand so I could slide it out of it's flip and hold it all heavy and solid in my hand. MAN, that felt good! :D

Holding and admiring the Antique Gold makes me think of the times I've sweated the hours when we've been on the road for days and not able to check to see if that XLE offer was in my inbox. OR the first time one did come and I sent the positive reply back but didn't get the invoice for like TWO whole days! I'd just about convinced myself that we weren't going to get one. MAN, that felt bad! :D

But it came and now there are 9 flags in the patriotic section of our collection and soon there will be more! :laughing:

Sorry to go on so, but some days you've just got to brag about what you've got!!! :rolleyes:

Thanks for your time!

Thanks to LadyBee4T for the Musketeer (she knew I was after this one) and a big thank you to drneal, your envelope was full of wonderful coins (his 2 personal ones oh and the other two as well :P ) thank you for saving a Chiro-Cache (I know you where running low but I felt I needed something you seeked before asking for a trade, hope you enjoy yours) next time I'm down and around St Marys I'll have to do some of your Chiro Caches.

Now I'm off to play with my pretty coins :unsure:
