A couple of months ago Sam K. called me and said he was putting lotion on his hands and placed his wedding ring on his lap while sitting in his carpet cleaning truck. He forgot about the ring and got out of the truck and went about his business of cleaning carpets. There was a heavy snow that day and the snow plow plowed the snow in the driveway, of the house he was at, into a large pile. My detecting partner Dave Boyer and myself searched through the snow and then knock down the snow bank to detect it deeper, no results. I called Sam and told him we would go back out after the heavy snow melted down a little. After several trips over a couple months we still couldn’t find the ring (we never quit). Last week Sams wife, Caitlin, called me and asked if Sam told me about the other house he was at that day and could have lost it there. I got the address from her and yesterday went out to Grandville, Michigan on a beautiful sunny day (44 degrees) and after 5 minutes I found the ring in a little snow bank at the end of the driveway. I called Caitlin and told her the good news. Seeing that Valentines Day is upon us, she decided to put the ring in a box of chocolates. The rest is history and the ring is back on his finger.
The pictures tell the story of Sam receiving his ring on Valentines Day from his wife. the first picture is Sam looking in a box of chocolates, the second is him seeing his ring and the third is Sam with his recovered ring. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
