Recently I got a call. “Do you hunt for lost rings with your daughter? You round my ring for me a few years ago…I lost it again.”
Way back in 2010, Vince lost his wedding ring in a park. My daughter and I found it for him. It was one of our first recoveries for TheRingFinders, so we remember it well. Click here to read that story.
This time, Vince was playing a ball game with his three sons on the trampoline in their back yard. While he was bouncing up and down, he reached down for the ball and gave it a hard throw. To his dismay, he watched his ring fly off his finger. They searched for hours, but couldn’t find it.
I made two trips over to Vince’s house. We searched his yard, under the trampoline, and his neighbor’s yard (across the fence to the left of the photo below. But no ring. There was only one possibility left: The ring had flown backwards, over the fence behind his head, into a different neighbor’s yard. That neighbor wasn’t home, but Vince said he would contact him as soon as possible.
The next day, Vince sent me an email with a photo of his ring. It had been sitting on top of the grass in that neighbor’s yard. This time Vince is going to get the ring resized!
