    Class Ring Recovered...back to owner

    I am so excited to report this! I recently posted an ad offering free metal detecting services for anyone who had lost valuables in their yards...or for anyone who was just curious to see if they had treasures in their ground. I have had several responses and today was my first assignment. I was called by a man who told me that in February 08 his son was in a snow ball fight at the neighbors while wearing his week old class ring. Well....off it went....not to be found. They searched the yard on several occasions, and even bought a cheapie detector to look for it. Well, I am happy to say, I recovered this gem in about 30 minutes. The ring will shine up good and still look new! Also found a nickel, penny, and a canadien nickel. The dad was very excited to say the least. Although I offered this as a free service....he insisted I at least take gas money.....so he gave me $7. That was cool of him.

    Around here...Evansville In....we have these yahoo groups....I am sure they are everywhere. I put ads in the groups...like evansvillecheapcycle@yahoogroups.com. I put it in last week. Have had 4 responses so far. Check the yahoo recycle groups in your area, I am sure you have them. Tomorrow night I am off to a ladies home where she lost her wedding ring in her yard 20 years ago. She says she know within a 20 feet area of where it should be....I am excited, I hope I find it!!
