    Gold ring found and returned update

    Not sure which forum to post this in, but here it is. About a month ago I received an email from someone who lost their wedding ring. He was pretty sure he knew where he lost it and asked if I might be able to help. I told him sure and I might be able to meet him early Saturday to look around. Turns out a few of my metal detecting buddies wanted to hit a favorite park so I cancelled the gold ring search and told him I would try and get there soon. I had a little time Monday morning so I went down to look around. I had never been to this field before, but he gave me a pretty good idea where it might have been lost. It didn't take that long and out pops a gold wedding band. I immediately gave him a call and asked him when he got married. He said June 20th 1992. Although he lived near the field, he was at work and his wife wasn't home either. I left it in an envelope for him at a nearby real estate office that's part of the company I work for. He picked it up and got back in touch with me and told me he'd like to send something to say thanks and asked for my address. Below is what he sent along with a photo of the ring. The restaurant the gift certificate is for is one of the best around although I've only eaten there a few times due to the cost. The have the best Grand Marnier souffle with Zabaglione Cream on the planet, but the cost is $16, a bit pricey for just dessert, but worth every penny. Turned out to be a great day for him and me.
