    Gold an Platinum kinda day!....

    I learned of a guy needing help finding his lost wedding ring. We made arrangements to meet this morning before work. I met him at the lake and in the water we went. We chatted and got to know each other as we covered the area where it was likely to be. After about 30 minutes I had some fishing sinkers, a dime, a nickel, some rusty can parts and then out pops a nice gold ring. The nice thing is that it was not the one we were looking for. (BONUS)!!!! So we continue and I am thinking boy I will feel bad if I found this one but not his. About 15 minutes later about 20 feet away from where we thought it was out pops Joe's platinum wedding band. He walked right over and gave me a big hug! We got out of the lake and took some pics and I could tell we were equally blessed. The ring was 16 grams of platinum and it cost him $1,200.00 Sure was nice to pop out that gold one too!

    Mike, I think that you should start wearing a cape. I'll let the spandex slide but you help so many people finding their lost wedding rings, I think a cape is definately in your future.
    Congrats on Bonus ring too.

    Helping someone find something special like his wedding ring
    has its own rewards Mike. A nice Gold ring is a very nice bonus
    reward for sure. Gold Nuggets
    It's amazing just how much treasure people loose and we manage to find.
