While showing a friend the spot where I recovered a ring last week, I noticed a group of about 20 young men. They had been playing a rowdy game that looked like a cross between football and lacrosse in waist to shoulder deep water, up and down the swimming area and now they had suddenly switched to that familiar search mode, with the players all bent over looking for something lost in the water. I gave them about fifteen minutes and when they were getting out of the water, looking discouraged, I approached the group.
After some banter back and forth I finally isolated the young man who admitted to losing his wedding ring. I was not able to search that evening so I gave him my card and told him I would return the following morning. It was cold and breezy the next morning; but I found the ring in knee deep water with a 3 hour search.
Usually I get a contract, or at least a phone number; but I could tell he didn’t believe I could find it, and he didn’t really want to give me any information. It was a few days before he called, and I was beginning to wonder if he wanted it back at all.
Let’s just say that he was surprised to hear I had his ring. He sent me a wedding picture to verify he was the owner, and I put his ring in the mail.
