Uncanny, or spooky?

Well, on a recent visit to sunny Harlow, where 3 of us had had a superb morning of finds. We returned to the car for a civilised lunch, of coffee, sandwiches, cakes and good conversation.

We speculated about the afternoon ahead and made lots of reference to the last 5 minutes of finds, what would it bring? The discussion centred around our wish for an 'Olympic' result - gold silver and bronze, - as the day drew to a close.

Well, would you believe it! The gods must have heard us, 15 minutes before the end of the day, as we were coming off the field, a nice military button was found. This was bettered with 5 minutes to go, with a whoopee of delight from a colleague who notched up his 1st silver thimble, and then 1 minute after that the 'gold star' of the day turned up in the shape of a Bronze age Potin from 100 BC.

Needless to say we were dumbfounded and gobsmacked about how the lunchtime conversation and hoped for finds had turned out.
