When Liz got home from work yesterday, her husband was in the garage with her son, restoring their classic 1964 Chevy Corvette. The guys were about to install the starter motor, so her husband handed her his wedding ring for safe keeping.
At just that moment, a cacophony of honking and yelping broke out across the street. They all looked up in time to see their dog Benji skittering frantically across the driveway, followed closely by a large Canadian goose. The dog yelped and ran in circles, the goose honked and flapped his wings, and the guys were frozen in place with their hands full of car parts.
So it was up to Liz to save the day. She ran out of the garage and chased the animals across the street. Eventually she caught up to Benji, who started circling her with the goose in close pursuit. So Liz scooped up Benji in one arm and used the other to wave away the angry goose. The guys clapped when she carried Benji back into the garage.
It wasn’t until later last evening that Liz realized she no longer had her husband’s platinum wedding ring. They searched in the dark, and again this morning, but could not find it. This morning she contacted The Ring Finders and I made it up to their home in Redwood City this afternoon.
After Liz told the whole story of the goose and the dog, finding the ring was really an anticlimax. I found it using my metal detector within 20 minutes, hidden beneath an ice plant across the street from their home. Everybody went away happy!
