    Talking Made one of my better finds for the year

    Found the owner to class ring I found a few years ago
    Made return to woman at her 50th class reunion
    she graduated in 1967 and lost her ring that Summer
    took more than the usual research to find her - searched thru like 100 links -ended up finding her mothers obituary (which had her maiden name)
    but that led to dead ends but it mentioned her husband as her mothers son in law with her married name - I could not find her with her
    married name anywhere but found her husband - who luckily is a big deal in a lot of circles and was able to eventually able to contact
    her thru him - we both agreed it would be cool to make return at her reunion which was last night - she was so happy of course
    I must have gotten about 50 hugs - one for each year lost - she works part time for the town paper and they are doing an article
    and among her husbands accolades - he writes a sportsmen's column for a large news paper (he is a big game hunter and fisherman among other things )
    and wants to do a story not only on the return - but on the hobby in general.
    Motto = "I try to hit where others cant or others wont "

    Great job representing the hobby! Don't forget to show him all of the garbage you help to clean up.

    Tell me the truth, did you have the shirt made for the photo op?

    OH, Heck YEAH! The things that place treasure hunters at the top of the HEAP for consideration and honorable deeds. Lovely gal is NO DOUBT grateful as all get out. Very cool her husband is taking a deserved appreciation for this way cool story and giving it the publicity it has merited. Nothing happens by chance in my world. Call it karma, sowing & reaping, or whatever but, your due diligence has opened up another dimension of blessings with your act of kindness. Expect a load of GOLD to come your way buddy! LOL! Honorable Mention no brainer! ~S~

    Good on ya Casper. This feeling you had when you returned it to her is way better than finding it. and yes you need yet another Honorable for putting in the effort to find her. Definitely harder than finding Kevin Bacon

    I have a bunch of Casper shirts - I wear them when I water hunt mostly - I have sweat shirts that are hand painted and ones that are airbrushed
    Ive been wearing Casper shirts for years - one trip to Fla. I had hunters up and down the beach see my shirt as I came out of the water and they all came down to meet me
    Like 7 guys and we had a pow wow - good times
