Agent 54 is a regular guy. He has a sense of humor and an active imagination. Agent 54 works for the Nominal Secrets Apparatus (NSA) under the DORD (Department of Redundancy Department) as a Listener/Reader. His job is to read, view or listen to data collected by the NSA and determine if there is a risk to national security. Agent 54 reports to his bosses, H. Cuffs and Max (Agent 86). He doesn’t take his job too seriously because he knows he’s spying on regular people most of the time.
For Christmas 2007, my wife
gave me a Bounty Hunter, Fortune Hunter model metal detector and I’ve been
hooked on Treasure Hunting ever since.
Today she gave me a Bounty Hunter, Elite 2200 model to replace the old
metal detector that I had joyfully worn out over 8 seasons of Treasure Hunting.
Thank you, Dear.
I have made
a real science out of Treasure Hunting.
I have created Word files for each year or season and have documented
the dollar amounts and the unusual treasures I have found. I include treasure I find without the
detector and things I find just by observing while using the detector. I also include dollar amounts for treasure
items I have sold to friends or the local Jewelry makers who buy some of my
silver & gold. To date I have found $2766.47 in 8 seasons. Not bad, eh!
Bounty Hunter, Elite 2200
beautiful thing is that I get to spend time outside in beautiful settings
looking for treasure. I get my exercise
and fresh air while enjoying the thrill of the hunt. I’ll probably never get rich using my Bounty
Hunter, Elite 2200 but, I get lots of “me time”. I like to write funny stories for my Agent 54 blog. Often story ideas and jokes come
to me when I’m in the field doing my treasure hunting thing.
cleaning and sorting my treasure when I come home too. I often find foreign coins that I look up on
the internet. It’s fascinating to learn
about different cultures this way. I
keep the foreign coins and other treasure items in different cigar boxes around
my treasure (formerly office) room. I
have a necklace and ring rack and many small jewelry boxes for post
earrings. It gives me great satisfaction
to look around my treasure room and see all this and 4 jars for American coins
and Tokens, “No Cash Value”.
forward to many more years of Treasure Hunting with my new toy. I’m sure I’ll have more great pictures to
show you in the coming seasons.

My “Wheaties” are in the box on the
right. More “Wheaties” in blue collector’s pads. Foreign
and special coins are in center cigar box with Canadian coins in far right
box. I found all these coins. I never buy coins.
good day of "Coin Shooting".

I dug up this Golden State Mint "Copper
Round" today (2/13/16).
It's not legal tender or very valuable but, it is
Former Presidential Candidate, Ron Burgundy has made this seasonal statement:
In this time of giving, I want to remind
you that there are many Americans out there who aren’t as fortunate as the rest
of us and we should all do something to help those Americans this time of
year. Personally, I bought and gift wrapped
two new doggie chew toys, one goes under the tree for Baxter and one goes into
the Toys for Tots box that the Marines put out in the mall. The Marine Corps will make sure the toys go to
children and dogs who may not have received anything this year if it wasn’t for
I want to tell you that I know this country was starving for leadership and I wanted to feed it. America needs a real man with brawn and great
hair. We face many challenges in the
future down the road and I wanted to be behind the wheel. I wanted to steer America around the potholes
and through the toll booths to greener pastures. It is in those pastures that I wanted to milk
the cows of human kindness so that no child is left without milk. I wanted to be the Duct Tape that repairs the
split we see in our society today.
Well, that’s what Wendy wanted me to tell you
but, it’s really more like what I told Elvis when I met him in New
Orleans. Elvis asked me why I really
wanted to be President and I thought about it and it was pretty simple. For years I’ve thought that I was, you know,
quote a pretty big deal but, then someone showed me that I really hadn’t
done much in my whole life for anyone else.
So, when someone suggested that I had Presidential hair, I thought this
was a way to really do something good for other people.
I’ve met some very interesting Americans on
our campaign tour of America. There was
Fred Sanford in St. Louis who may become the next “Junkmaster General of the
USA”. I met a hairdresser at Fenway Park
and race car driver Ricky Bobby in North Carolina. I partied with Kim in Green Bay and talked to
Carl Spackler in The Great Northwest and I even met Cher.
What I’ve learned on the campaign trail is that
we’re really all the same. We all want
the freedom and the opportunity to do our own thing the best way we can. We all want to be safe and we all want a
secure future for our country and our children and we all want to spend the
holidays with family.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a
Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Agent 54 here again. I
enjoy hiking the mountains of Arizona. These pictures are from Squaw Peak
which was renamed Piestewa Peak in honor of Army Spc. Lori Ann Piestewa, the
first known Native American woman to die in combat in the U.S. military, and
the first female soldier to be killed in action in the 2003 Iraq War.
The mountain is imposing from the

Awesome Cliff Face. Those are 40
ft tall Saguaro Cacti growing on the slope.

Looking at the back of famous Camelback
mountain in Phoenix from near the top of Squaw Peak.
My truck is somewhere in the foreground
parking lot. In the distance through the haze it downtown Phoenix with
South Mountain along the Horizon. A golf course provides a nice patch of
green in the upper middle.
If you like to hike, you must visit
Phoenix for great hikes with spectacular views.
Agent 54 here again.
I once visited the White House in Washington D.C. as a civilian, on a
tour where I said "mmm, meatballs" while lifting the lid of an
antique serving tray. My kids thought
that was funny however, someone in the basement of the White House, spent a month
trying to decipher the “secret coded message” I had left. Now that I work for the NSA under the DORD I
was able to look up the old incident report for my visit. The report’s stated conclusion was that the
messenger was “probably mentally challenged”.
Now I work for them.
having an Ugly Christmas Sweater contest at the NSA Christmas Party next week
and I have to wonder, do I have a chance to win?
wonder why anyone would have a contest for wearing ugly clothing but, it’s
obviously good clean Christmas fun until someone pukes egg nog on your Ugly Sweater
and then it’s good disgusting fun. Some
of the Sweaters I’ve seen, puke on them would be an upgrade.
anyone’s aunt Ethyl be insulted this season because her nephew Phil, won his
company’s Ugly Christmas Sweater contest wearing her latest creation? Probably but, if you’re going to make an
omelet you have to crack some eggs and if you get some egg on the Sweater, all
the better your chances of winning.
imagine the Sweater my buddy Billy Idol will be wearing. Surely it will have some leather and some
studs and probably a few holes. He will
definitely be a contender for the title.
Progressive Sweater will be mostly white.
That is until the puking begins.
But then, who knows what vomitus works of art people will be sporting by
end of the night.
Gadget’s Sweater will be neat and have a device built in to automatically clean
any puke or egg or egg nog stain. He
will not win.
John Rambo won’t win either. He’ll
undoubtedly be wearing a Sweater with the sleeves ripped off but, he looks so good that he’ll make the raggedy
Sweater a sure loser.
El Guapo has
a chance to win, especially if he gets some good red and green Guacamole and
Salsa stains on his Sweater. Nothing
says Christmas like Guacamole and Salsa.
green and purple Sweater with his multi-colored face on it will be tough to
judge. Who has the guts to tell the
Joker he has an ugly mug or that his sweater lost the contest. Talk about getting caught between the egg and
Lady Ga Ga’s
Sweater will surely be too revealing and my boss, Max may have to make her
cover-up. After all it’s a Christmas
party at the NSA and not a strip club.
Ducttaper will probably be wearing her normal ill-fitting blue Sweater that she
wears over her white uniform. It’s her
face that makes that Sweater a contender despite its lack of creativity.
Of course the Minions will look cute in their ugly sweaters. They're a top contender for the crown.
With so many
great contenders it’s not going to be easy to be the Ugliest. So, I’m off to the Goodwill store to pick out
a winning Ugly Sweater. Wish me luck.
