<<<<<<<<<GOLD RING RETURN>>>>>>>>>>>

I said β€œI’m the best why do you ask?” He said β€œ I lost my wedding ring 16 years ago and I have an idea about where it is”. I said, ”If you know about where it is I’ll find. So I go over to his house and unbeknownst to me he was having a crawfish boil and he’s telling everybody I got the best metal detector guy here he’s gonna find my ring. It was to say the pressure was on. He knew about 12 x 12 where the ring should be. Mr Clyde was talking the whole time about his cancer and I think the whole time PLEASE GOD let me find this one and boy he can he talk being a coonass myself I’m use to hearing long drawn out stories from my elders. Lol All of a sudden I get a clear signal about half and hour in I dig down and I said β€œIs this it?” and his face was priceless he started crying. Made me feel good and the whole family was cheering. He offered me $100 and I told him there’s no way I could except that but I would love to take a picture with him. But he wouldn’t let they leave empty-handed he asked me,” Do you like old bottles?” I said β€œsure” and he gave me a suitcase filled with old bottles from the late 1800s to the early 1900s nothing to write home about but so special to me because they were obviously special to him he hand wrap everyone of them in bubble wrap and then doing like we do he gave me 10lbs of crawfish [emoji3081]
He also knows of a lot of old ground and stories about them all he he said it would be his pleasure of showing me where these are and getting me some permissions needless to say it was a beautiful day. IMG_1791.jpg

How right you are,Ira and I went through boot together and all the other training prior to our first posting to a duty station and became fast friends.We were assigned to different parts of the Corps but managed to bump into each other now and then.We lost touch later much to my dismay.I don,t remember where he was from except he always referred to the bayou country.he knew about fishing and hunting,we had many good talks about that.

That's a great story TRUTH ! Congrats on making an ol' man's dream come true. As for Coonasses. I'm from Fla but My Father-in-Law gave me a certificate making me an "Honorary Coonass" 20 years ago after staying married to his daughter for 20 years ! She was raised north of Houma near Bayou Blue. :notworthy:

Wow! What an awesome post! I would imagine the feeling you got when you handed him the ring was the best reward you could get for your efforts. Every thing else was bonus. You deserve an Honorable Mention, also.
Congratulations, Truth.

I truly appreciate that WannaDig3637. As soon as he saw it I was watching his emotions overcome himself and he said it looks just like it did all those years back I told them that’s because it was that Love Gold[emoji631]
