    ~Made Someone Happy~

    Yesterday, Lisa, Terri, Sherri and I met up for relic hunting at one of our regular sites. (Burdie, you know where this is.) We started out on a small area that had been recently disturbed, between the bottom of a hill and a road. I hunted around for a few minutes and decided to walk up to a different place. Found a little silver button, two little round bullets and then the buckle. Lisa calls on the cell and says she's found a stirrup! After a bit I go back to where they're hunting and come across my first snake of the year. Vol, (Brad) had mailed me yesterday to warn me that they'd already seen 'em out, so I was watching where I stepped. After announcing that yes, indeed the snakes are running, it didn't take long for everyone to decide to change locations.
    Some of you may remember this site....

    It's one of my favorite places and we've hunted there many times. It's still good for a keeper or two if we're lucky. We all scattered about and started digging. Found a dog tag from 1939, an old watch and a couple of pennies.

    The day was almost over for hunting and just as I was about to leave, one of the owners sons came out to talk to me. He said that he had lost his wedding ring. What's even worse, he hasn't been married for very long. :P
    Said he had lost it the day we had the snow a couple of weeks ago. I told him we'd be more than happy to look for it! So I called the girls on the cell and had them come over. He asked if I mind if he tried to look for it and I said, "Not at all!" So with a quick lesson, he looked for all of five minutes and handed it back to me. By then the girls had made it back and we started in to looking for it. Half an hour later....I find it!! Yea!

    Just seeing that smile on his face, ya know? I love it! Don't know who was happier, him or me! I told him that if I find something and didn't get to keep it, that it required a picture. No problem there!

    I like days like these.

    That is a great story, Nana.

    Sometimes it's the finds you don't bring home that are the most rewarding ones...

    His picture says it all !!!!!

    You go girl!
    That is a cool looking ring Nana, congrats. Was it titanium or some other metal? It doesn't look like silver.

    Awesome post Nana, without finding a chest full of gold, this is as good as it gets, LOL! Returning a find like that is a great feeling. I cherish a hunt with the Alabama girlies like I would a great foreign hunt. HH, Mike
