    Cute story of lost ring, Ft. Laud beach Tuesday this week, I'm heading off the beach when the lifeguard tells me, a lady just lost her engagement ring at the next lifeguard stand, will you go hunt for it.
    I put more money in meter and headed down there......

    I ask, is it white gold, yellow gold, or platinum.....? It's sterling silver with diamonds.
    And, the tide is coming in fast!

    The fiancÚ is in the water with me, I'm up to my neck and going under......
    (dang, why my rear end and legs keep floating up, when I loose bottom?)
    I iz neverz haz thoze boyanzeseseses b4z

    So I tell him to hold me in place He was trying to be helpful so I was going to let him.

    I find the target, he's holding me from behind around the waste, I tell him,
    "OK PUSH ME UNDER" (to scoop)
    I had that nano-second flash of, why this may not be a good idea.........
    along with, hoping he'd pull me back up...... and quick
    Yeah, no, we agreed this may not work......

    Gotta come back tomorrow, (which was yesterday, Wednesday)......
    So, the story continues......

    Soooo, Wednesday morning, I take my neighbor 60 miles up the road and we clean the mom & bro-n-laws place,
    it's an every couple 'o weeks thing, she'll be 90 soon..... she's the crazy cat lady,
    but that's another story......
    (which I'll probably hafta post under the comedy section, lol)......
    So go clean, drive home, dang, I was an hour off on the low tide , so rush to get to the beach.

    Anyway, I didn't get that pic of the ring till this morning, I still didn't know "exactly" what I was looking for.....
    Oh and thank Dog for low tide! What was over my head the night before, was barely up to my chest at low tide.

    I start gridding north to south, having marked my spot by the Marriot building.
    Nothing, not even pennies and all the trash from the evening before, surely I couldn't have dug everything last night.
    So I start gridding east/west, going out to the deeper waters.
    BOOM, well, more like, a loud whisper, it was under the sand a little ways, maybe turned on edge.
    Still rang in as silver (through Fluffy), she howled the night before when she found a big old tungsten ring.

    "OMG, I hope this ain't her ring and it's platinum, cause it's BEAUTIFUL and heavy!"

    You know the cat cain't see worth nothing..... So I keep looking......
    I'm hoping to find another ring, her ring, right......

    So, finally, a few hours later, ring in hand, I head back home, clean the machine, catsuit, booties, me, clean the little ring up, ate, dug his phone # outta the trash, where I almost had thrown it away, but I had also memorized it(one of the many cat tricks, I do ) so I knew it anyway.......
    By that time, it's 11:30.....
    Goodnight......
    Tomorrow (Thursday, today) is another day......

    Okays, I'll try to wrap this up for ya'll's......
    Thursday morning, this morning, gotta call the guy and girl...... I'm asking for a specific description of ring, eterninty, 3 stone, band like, she sends the pic over to me this morning, and I tell her, "THAT'S IT"!
    squeals of delight and we gonna meet up in an hour or so.....
    at the Flashburn club, okay, deal. (names get changed to protect the guilty )

    I drive to what used to be the place....... about a DECADE AGO!
    I really should get out and about more......
    It was closed and the construction man was driving a similar vehicle, I thought it was him, lol.

    He told me I couldn't drive around back it was blocked, I told him I was meeting someone here?
    He said "this place is closed, who you meeting and what for"? Me, being the cat, said, "Wait, that's not really any of your business now is it, I don't know you.......", then it hit me, oh cat cwap, he's the man in charge here, foreman, owner, whatever..... lol, oopsies. I told him I'm returning ring, you got same vehicle I'm meeting, apologized(for being a little slow there, wasn't expecting this place to be closed, yeah, now I get it.....), I think he seen the look on my face...... lol.
    I'm like, oh dog oh dog, where's the place..... run into a little restaurant in the strip mall,
    thank goodness they knew where I wanted to be......
    Back on the road again.....

    Drive down the road and there's my mark, errr, I mean the ring folks......
    I had told her, I was probably the only other woman ever wore her engagement ring and let her take it off my finger.
    They were so happy, they even gave me a nice $50 reward. I tried to get them to give me less, they wouldn't hear of it.
    Thanks so much R&B! Ya'll are the bombs, too!

    They were so very sweet, we took pics, & they said it was ok to put them up.
    It was fun and made some new friends.

    Thanks for the Honorable Mention, that'll be my first one!
    I've found a few other rings for folks, but didn't have a camera, so couldn't really do anything about that, so oh well, lol.

    It really was comical, me and the guy in the water. Dog, I gulped down a bunch of salt water, lol.
    Every time it'da go over my head, I was spitting, hissing, snotting..... yeah, there's a dream date alright, LOL!
    Him shoving me under water a time or two or five, LOL. One woulda thought he was trying to drown the cat, LOL.
    The plan was not fully thought through! LOL.

    Hey, where's my 1715 crew? I'm ready for some deep diving, now.
    Well, maybe at least 10 to 20 feet, at most. LOL.

    Thanks again Deep!

    LAWL, thanks, that's kept me laughing today, (though I know it is a serious matter)

    but, ya just can't beat the comedic value of some of these "adventures", now can ya!?

    As long as I make it to the end of the day, all pieces parts in tact, and have a refreshing adult beverage in hand,
    I'll call it "success".

    That was one of the best reads I have had in some time. Great buildup and great ending with some comedy in between.

    Thanks for sharing
