I have been metal detecting for a number of years. Early on, my mother lost her earring in the backyard of my childhood home. She immediately called me and asked if I could help find it. It was a yellow gold hoop earring. She had been in the garden, pruning her shrubs and pulling weeds in her flower beds. I searched and searched, even returning multiple times – but never found that earring. She sent the other earring she still had to my sister to try to find another pair as a replacement for a Christmas gift. Fast forward 3-4 years … and while at my son’s soccer game, she lost one of the new earrings. Could I redeem myself this second time and find the lost earring and return it to my mother? After about 5 mins of searching, we found it. My mom was very happy and rewarded us with a nice batch of chocolate covered peanut butter balls – a family favorite.
