    Rewarding Craig's list lead

    I saw an ad in the lost and found section on Craig's list Saturday night. It was from a wife pleading for someone to find her husband's wedding ring. He had lost it working in the grassy are between the road and the sidewalk. She gave a pretty good description of where it was lost in the ad. So, I emailed her back trying to get as precise a location as possible. On Sunday, the husband responded with all the details. Monday was my hunting day. The area where the ring was lost was about an hour away. I saw my daughter off to the school bus and I headed straight there.

    I found the location easily enough and I started swinging. Now I would like to say that I found the ring on the first swing. However, that's not how it happened. It was more like the next to last swing. I had hunted for around an hour, trying to be as thorough as possible. I had picked up a surprising amount of coins. I was working my way towards my starting point when I got a signal. There under the coil sitting in the grass was the ring ! So I went to the car, put the gear away and sent a picture message of the ring to my wife. All the excitement made me pretty hungry, so I went to lunch. After lunch, I called the guy's wife and told her I found the ring. She met me and I returned her husband's ring. She was just a little happy to get the ring back. Not as happy as I was to get the reward.

    I made a stop on the way home and hunted an older baseball field. I didn't find much. 3 pennies and 1 quarter and bunches of pulltabs.
