    Bees, Fire Ants and Picker Plants.......

    ....Were a bit much for this nice wife and husband who called me asking for help in finding her silver ring that slipped off while doing some landscaping today.
    The ring is a gift from her mother-in-law who custom made it back in college, that's why it is unique and un-replaceable. It means a lot to both of them.
    I got on site and checked with the MXT in amongst the landscaping bed in both front and back yard where she remembered being. I also checked the 2 bags of yard debris. We took a break and had some water to cool off a bit and recap the situation. I went back out front and swept the area again where hubby was holding back some foliage and got a sweet silver signal that revealed this beautiful specimen! I'm not saying I'm immune to the conditions on this hunt but the bites and scratches were well worth it!

    Good for you and good deed! I was recently unsuccessful at locating two small gold charms. I tried for 5 hours over 2 days. I really wanted to find them for her but no luck. So disappointed. Good for you though! Feather in your cap!

    This is a great call out -- we should all look for opportunities to show we are a valuable resource to others and let folks know it's a hobby that gives back. Thanks for the word ScubaDetector!

    Your welcome! I really want to do a ring return, it seems like a great experience, I have returned a few wallets, but returning a ring seems more special. Maybe I could put an ad in Craigslist for a free jewelry recovery service lol.

    Congrats on your 9th honorable mention, all are very well deserved
