    I made a Spring Breaker Happy!

    After showing my wife the beautiful rings and jewelry some of the other Tnetter’s have found she insisted that we go to Daytona Beach and go MD’ing during Spring Break. The first day, we hit in front of one of the clubs on the beach. I found some ‘bling’ and my wife found a fair amount of clad. I then found a ten dollar bill in the sand and the competition was on.

    The next morning we did the same thing at the same place. This time I found a one dollar bill and a money clip with driver’s license, debit card and gift cards in the sand. I also found some assorted clad. My wife hates to be outdone so she found a twenty dollar bill in the sand and assorted clad.

    The third day she had to play golf (retirement is tough) so I went alone to our favorite spot. Someone had gotten there before me. It was gridded out like a football field and all that was left was twelve cents in clad. That being the case I tried spot a little south of that spot and lo and behold I found twenty-five dollars in bills in the sand. That’s a total of fifty-six bucks for a few hours work.

    When I got home I researched the name on the Driver’s License in the money clip I found the day before. I plugged it into the internet and it gave me a phone number in Louisville, KY. I called that number and left a message. An hour later I received a phone call from a concerned and relieved Mom. She said her son had called her that morning and told her of his lost money clip. She was able to contact him and in turn he contacted us to arrange a meeting.(see attached pic.) We met him at his hotel on the beach. He was one happy Spring Breaker. He had money to spend and ID to prove his age.

    Attached is a picture of the “bling” made of plated brass, the Spring Breaker’s money clip and a picture of one happy and sunburned breaker.

    That is way cool.

    I love the way you put it "... one happy Spring Breaker. He had money to spend and ID to prove his age." He sure looked tickled - and relieved!

    good job!
