    Found the earrings

    I was hunting Pass-A-Grille beach near St. Pete Fl this afternoon. The beach has changed tremendously due to TS Debbie. I'm finding some historic pull tabs, and some very old bottle caps. Nothing but the usual junk for me, but a bad day at the beach is better than a good day....

    Anyhow, I was leaving the beach and stopped to rinse my gear. This fellow walked up to me and said, "How much can I pay you to help me?" "Nothing" I said, "What did you loose?"

    He told me that he had some custom earrings made for his daughter in Panama and she is down visiting from Indiania. She treasured them and made sure she took them off before going into the water. She set them on the beach towel and well, you can guess the rest of the story. I asked him to show me where they were, and again declined any money.

    I saw where they had been digging and scraping in the sand looking for them. They did some serious searching.

    The Infinium had no trouble with three cents, a small wire, some tiny foil, and then viola! The first earring. It had just a very fine piece of wire holding the stone. A minute later, the other one.

    He said he was going to be his daughters hero today, she had been in tears (11 Years old) since loosing them.

    So, my finds for the day, can slaw, pull tabs, two AA batteries, three cents, and one very happy little girl.

    Anytime a complete stranger can personally bring a smile back to the face of a child is worth acknowledging.

    GIB, Great Return!

    He smoked but didn't inhale
    Poked, but didn't impale
    Made aware of the dress
    He was forced to confess
    A snail can't deny his own trail
