    Pretty scary losing your wallet. I know! Lost mine once, found it in the washing machine. Happy everything turned out for you.

    Metal Detecting
    Sweet, I know the feeling - Once had a wallet returned to me with $1,700 no less plus my id.
    That guy wouldn't accept a cash reward either so I returned later with an Arab pastry tray which he accepted [guy was a muslim].
    [Cost about $40 too, not cheap]

    That is awesome, xray...I lost another wallet about 10 years ago while camping along the Mohican River. Turns out, I had it in my shorts when I went out in the river to mess around...so the rest of the weekend and all the way home I was SICK...but upon arriving home I was greeted with a voicemail (still had a land line), from.a nice woman who had found my wallet floating merrily down the river. I called her back and she mailed it to me and wouldn't let me pay the postage...I sent her a thank you card with a $25 Applebee's gift card (I made sure there was one close). Yep, there are still some decent peeps out there...Ddf

    There are still plenty of decent, caring, honest folks out there. Nice reward----I have had similar experiences.

    A couple of years ago one morning someone stole my bag on the same beach. It only contained my lunch, a cheap phone and my detecting permit. Had to make a report at the police station because my metal detecting permit was involved. Can’t get a new one unless I provide a police report that it was stolen. Afterwards that day I’m out on the same beach detecting and a young guy comes up to me asking me questions about metal detecting permits. How odd. People don’t ask questions about permits. He asked me how much they are worth. Even odder! No doubt this guy took the bag. I did ask him if he happened to find the bag I lost, but of course he didn’t. Which is the answer you would expect from a petty thief So I was lucky to get my wallet back.
