    I made someones day today - Wedding band found for owner **VIDEO**

    On Friday I had searched the local lost & found ads on Craigslist like I do once in awhile. I noticed a guys cry for help for someone with a metal detector. His ad read:

    "I need friendly person with metal detector to help me find my wedding ring in the back yard of my friends house. I'm broke and can't afford a metal detector myself. Please help! Ed "

    Well, being the "friendly person" that I am, I gave Ed a call. Turns out he's had numerous calls on his ad, but no one wanted to make the trip to where he lived. Ed was only 20 minutes from me, so I offered to come by Sunday (today) to help him find the ring. He said he didn't have a lot of money, but he could give me $20 for my trouble. I told him I don't want any money, and we (our elite group on TN) do this kind of thing to help others.
    I arrived today about 2:30pm and met Ed who said he had lost his ring a few weeks ago when he and a buddy were clearing out some debris and brush from the backyard. He showed me the path he had taken throughout the day from the backyard to the front curb.
    I started in the backyard and was greeted with pull tabs, foil, and buried cans. Ed was starting to get worried now thinking the ring was gone for good. He then told me that he had removed a section of the fence and "flung it" to the side in order to get the stuff they were hauling from the back to the front. Being the gridder that I am, I was on my 2nd pass outside of the fence about 4' from the fence line and got a signal with the Mighty Tesoro. I moved the leaves aside, and BINGO, there was the shiny gold & diamond wedding band in all it's glory saying, "I'm down here, pick me up!" Needless to say, Ed couldn't believe his eyes, and had a smile from ear to ear. The first thing he said to me was, "You are my hero. Thank you so much." Ed is a professional chef by the way fresh from Las Vegas and offered to make my wife & I a nice dinner for helping him out.
    "Congrats Ed, I'm glad I could be there to help."

    Here's the video. Enjoy.

    ********THANKS EVERYBODY********
    I didn't find squat yesterday when I went detecting, so it was a bit of a wasted day for me. This ring find today was my highlight for sure.
    Be sure to check the local lost & found sections in your areas. There may be someone out there needing your help.
    Have a great week.
