Wedding band returned
Saturday I met a woman at the beach, who said she saw me there last wednesday and was wondering if I had found a wedding band which her father had lost 2 weeks ago. I informed her that it was not me detecting
as I mostly hunt on Sunday and rarely at this beach but would help her find it.
So she return's with her father and he takes me were he lost it. By that time the tide was coming up and getting deep and i did not find it.
So sunday morning I give it a try and 45 minutes later," BINGO" it's in my scoop. Now it's a nice sized band that's loose on my middle finger and for a minute there the P.R.(Pirate Rican) in me want's to take over.
But I promised her if i found it I would call her and did. I think I gave her a wake up call and she could not believe I had found the ring. 30mins later she's at the beach. I show her the ring and she said," yes it was the ring" but I new that becuase I asked for a discription the day before.
And she hands me $100 Bill which I most graciously accept.Now she in tears and thanked me again and said it was ok to take a pic. I have to say it felt very good to see her so happy but would have liked to seen the father's reaction.
