    Again!!! Frustration Turns Into Gold Ring #5

    It's Spring Break. Kids out a school. I decided to drive
    the one hour trip Pine Bluff.

    Pine Bluff is a historic town in Arkie Land, and it hasn't
    been depleted by Tabdog.

    I got started in an old park. I was diggin a bunch of ate
    up pennies and a couple of nickles, and then my Mom
    called.

    " YOU REMEMBER MY DOCTOR"S APPOINTMENT
    AT 10:00, DON"T YOU??

    Well, I had to hi-tail it back ta Home Base before my
    mom was late for her doctor's appt.

    No time for pics.

    This is all I found. 90% of tha pennies were trashed.



    It took for ever at tha doctors office. I ate a little lunch.

    Took mom to eat. Then I took her home, and went to tha
    pharmacy to get her prescription filled.

    Wollie-World said it would be 45 minutes.

    8 hours into this day, half a tank of gas, and nada

    I had half an hour, so I headed to a near-by tot lot.



    Tha next 30 minutes would change my perception of
    tha whole day.

    I met a nice family, with a few darling children.

    Then, CABOOOM!!!!

    A GOLD RING!!!!!!

    Right under this old oak tree.



    It's really small. but it's gold.

    I looked down, and to my surprise, there was
    one of them Arkie Bilfolds!!!

    You know tha ones about 4" thicklol

    I looked inside, money and credit cards everywhere.
    Then I saw that guys picture on his driver's license.
    They had just drove out.

    I searched until I found his phone number. I called.

    I said " HAY, ARE YOU DRIVIN WITHOUT A LICENSE"?

    There was silence for a few seconds. Then I heard,

    "I LOST MY #@!?^&$ BILLFOLD!!!!!!"

    I said, " it's OK, just come on back to tha park and
    I'll give it back ta ya".

    Man, You talk about a happy lookin fellow.

    He tried to give me some money, but I just couldn't
    take it.

    Tha day turned out real nice after all.

    Just don't give up.

    Lookie here. This is all I had to dig to score a gold
    ring.







    Thanks fer goin along with me.

    Let's do this again sometime.

    Happy Huntin,

    Can't find it if you're watching tv at home, your machine isn't on, and the head of your detector is pointed up!!
