    Made a guy very happy

    Got a call yesterday from a gentleman that lost his car keys while jogging, He said he tossed them on the side of a cranberry bog so he wouldnt have to carry them as he jogged and planned on picking them up after. He said he looked for a while with no luck and he found my name on the The Ring Finders and gave me a call. I met him today after work and he showed me the area he tossed them, I fired up my DFX and in about 30 seconds got a tone in all metal mode i reached down and passed him his keys. He said he thought he tossed them further down the hedge row. He let me get a couple pictures and gave me a gift for coming out and finding them.I told him it wasnt needed but he insisted that i take it. i'm hoping to make it to 20 honorable mentions by the end of 2013. thanks for looking

    Few years ago I was coming out of the woods with my detector, an older couple passed by and saw me and approached me the wife told me years ago that her husband lost his wedding ring somewhere on their property, so i went over to their property and searched for it for almost 4 hours and found it right next to their wood pile. They wanted to give me $100 but instead I told them too write the check to the Volunteer Fire Dept. instead.

    Nice job on the find and return of his keys. He was happy and
    you are well on the way for your Honorable Mention goal in 2013.
    It's amazing just how much treasure people loose and we manage to find.

    While I can't necessarilly argue with Red, I'm pretty certain we've all done one, or possibly 2, dumb things in our lives. Our best hope is someone like Plymouth is there to lend a hand. Deserves the H.M. Nice job.

    Nice job!! I returned a wallet once only to have the guy say cool, and get back in his car, no thank you... nada. But I knew it was the right thing to do! 2 years later I lost mine with 200 bucks in it and the guy drove 15 miles to my doorstep and handed it back to me. I insisted on giving him $50 and he refused and said the same thing happened to him, and now it was his turn!! KARMA's a wonderful thing!!

    so instead of keeping them on his person, he throws down his keys to his vehicle and home just so he won't have to carry them? sounds like a moron to me. that's what they make fanny packs and strap on wrist wallets for.
