    Ring #44, First Gold.........Returned.

    Had some time to hunt today after work. Picked a couple of wheats (1915 & 1927) and an old marble.

    But, the highlight of the day was the last signal of the day!

    The back story.........The gas station where I fill up is also a convenience store for that neighborhood and is situated across from a local middle school. It has a large "L" shaped grassy lot on the west and south sides. The owner gave me permission to hunt there earlier this summer. So, when there is time, I usually hunt for about an hour when I gas up..........my version of a gas discount.
    Last week a neighborhood girl stopped to talk and asked if I could find her gold wedding band that was "lost" in the grass. She indicated an area that she thought it might be. I was unsuccessful on the first two attempts. Today, as she was leaving the store, I asked her a few questions about how the ring was lost and determined from the story that it was some distance from where she had originally indicated. Ten minutes later..........

    It is a small white gold band (matching her engagement ring) that sang out loud and proud when the Compadre coil went over top. I let her pick it out of the dirt........"You made my day! You made my day!". She offered a reward........I declined........I had my reward!!

    Thanks for lookin', keep swingin' while the weather holds and good luck to all!
    Back to the hunt.........

    Thank you, atw.........it's more important to me to protect our long term rights to dig treasures than to accept any short term reward. And, it feels good, too!!
