    Family Heirloom Found and Returned Today

    I got a call yesterday from someone who got one of my business cards. Two and a half years ago he lost his Great Grandfathers ring in a slip in a marina. He was working on a boat and went to brush sawdust off his clothes. The ring flew off, bounced on the dock, hit the side of the boat and it was history. Told him I would meet him there at 10:00 today. We meet and load all my equipment in a golf cart and go out to the boat. The water is brown and a lot of weeds are floating on top. I am thinking YECH. I get suited up and go in. First three mid tone signals were brass canvas snaps in muck. So I am thinking it was lost two and a half years ago, deep in the muck. Nope. Fourth signal was another mid tone, and it turned out to be the ring. I came up with it on my finger and surprised everyone. Date on the inside is 1915.

    He called his dad and told him it was found and his dad couldn't believe it. He never told his grandfather who gave it to him, but now that he has it back he is going to. I am going to get a picture of me just coming up with the ring on my finger. Will post it after they send it.

    10 minutes worth of searching got me another 50.00 and I was happy. I decided no more dives today. It is 60 degrees out and a bit cool for me.

    There is an honorable mention category. However, I do this every year a few times a month. I advertise and ask for air and gas. People give me what they think is fair and I accept it. So my posts don't really deserve to be there. The folks that do it for free and return things they find on their own, are the ones that deserve that recognition.

    I do return class rings I find on my own. The trouble with that is my newest one this year is 1949 and most don't have schools on them anymore, or initials in them for some reason.
    Please leave a ring after the beep. Thank You.

    Honorable mention it is.. just because you provide a service does not disqualify you from a good deed. Your cost is to cover expenses, not for profit.

    I would like to nominate scuba for an "Honorable Mention" award. Will someone second the motion?
