    3 minutes - 10K - and smiles all around!!!.........

    Got a call after church and was asked if I might have the time to look for a girls class ring. I said it would be my pleasure. I got to the site and found I would be looking near an above ground swimming pool in thick grass full of clover. I asked if it was silver or gold. They said silver so away I went listening for that high coin signal. I got two of them but they were below the surface so I kept going. Then I hear this real low tone and by habit my eyes looked down and I seen a glint of silver and then I reached down to pick up the ring. BINGO! Turns out is was silver in color but it is 10K white gold. Good thing I looked down because that was not the tone I was listening for. The mom almost cried, and was so thankful. She called het daughter out and boy was she happy! I have known this girl since she was little, and the smile was worth a million bucks! By the way, the mom said I was welcome to hunt the 1800's yard!
