So today I got my first TheRingFinders find. A somewhat frantic young lady waited 11 years for her engagement ring and lost it from her purse somewhere between her office, Mom’s house, and her home. She assured me that many friends and family have been looking for it for the last four days and she even rented a metal detector from the the local equipment yard, but the ring was still lost. First we checked her cubicle farm, traced her steps through the parking lot and vegetation area near her parking spot. Then a detailed search of her car followed by a hands and knees search of the Mom’s house. Of course the gardener had come earlier that day and we counted our blessings that he dumped the grass clippings in the recycle bin instead of the dump, but it was not there either. Then we went to her house; the last place on the trail and her hope needle was near empty. Come to find out her front door is 20 feet directly above a drainage culvert with a drain hole at bottom – a likely place for the lost ring. Resigned to my fate, I climbed down into the culvert to plumb the drain when I glanced to my right and spied the sparkly ring deep under a juniper tree. That sucker must have taken a heck of a bounce to land there. I picked up the ring and displayed it to her. The resulting scream of joy brought the neighbors to their front doors and probably resulted in a call or three to 9-1-1. A good start. 1 for 1.
