I was sleeping and it took a few tries for Michael to wake me. I heard the phone ring on his his fourth call.
It was cold and windy when I went to bed and I could hear through the phone connection that Michael was cold. Hurriedly, he explained he had accidentally tossed his wedding ring out his car window. He had a good idea where it landed; fortunately he had not been driving more than 5 mph when he lost the ring. He called for help and along with several friends, he and his wife had been searching since 7:30 pm. It was almost midnight and I could tell he was desperate.
We talked for a few minutes longer and I knew he would be there all night without help. I took a little longer getting to the spot then I planned as I made a few wrong turns on my way. Michael had faith, and was waiting for me when I found the cold but determined group. It did not take long to recover Michael’s ring.

Moral of the story – Don’t throw things out the window of your car and don’t search futility for hours, call the ringfinder while the light is still good.
