My wife and I had just arrived at our oldest daughter’s house to see our three granddaughters for an afternoon of fun. As we’re walking in the front door, I heard my daughter, who was on her phone, say; “Hold on, he just walked in the door.” As she’s handing me her phone, she says it’s one of her co-workers, Sandra who had a lady in her office reporting a lost ring. When I talked to Sandra, she informed me that a young couple had lost his wedding band in the sand in front of the resort, and the young lady was extremely upset. I got a description of the lady making the report (tall, blonde hair, and wearing a cowboy hat). I told Sandra I’d be there in 15 minutes. Luckily, I had thrown my PI machine in the trunk before we left home because I had intentions of hitting low tide after we left our daughter’s house.
After finding a place to park, I walked out on the beach looking for a tall blonde wearing a cowboy hat, and not seeing one. As I’m walking down the beach, I see a young man walking towards me with a big smile on his face. He asked if I was there to find a ring when I said yes, he introduced himself as Rob and he leads me up the beach to the soft sand. As I’m walking up, I see his wife, Anna, who is about six months pregnant and crying, sitting in the sand running her hand back and forth over the top of the sand, trying desperately to find his ring. Their story was that his ring was sitting on a towel and when she picked up the towel to shake it, his ring went flying. Rob showed me the small area and on my second grid line, BANG! When I got the signal I looked over at them and smiled, they knew. I let Rob reach in the scoop and get his ring back. Now Anna’s tears were tears of joy.
Rob and Anna – thank you for trusting me to find your lost ring and the very best to you two and your new addition!
