“Over this past week I have heard some funny, sad and plain crazy stories of how people have lost their wedding rings. Well, here is mine:
Jess and I got married last Saturday in Groton, CT. It was by the water and it was an amazing night. After a long day/night of tearing up the dance floor, I decided that I needed to go for a late night swim in the ocean to freshen up (not recommended). All was great, the water was the perfect temperature and the sky was clear and you could see all the stars. I floated around for a little bit and then went back to the beach house to call it a night.
The next morning we had brunch at my god parents’ house and someone wanted to see my ring. Never being a ring wearer, I extended my arm and looked at my hand and realized that it wasn’t on my finger. Without panicking, I told my family if they told Jess I would kill them and I sprinted to the beach house (ran about 100 ft, got out of breath and walked the rest).
I flipped the beach house upside down looking in every room/bathroom/drain/pocket/shoe that I came across. It wasn’t in the house so I went to the beach where thy lay the nyth before. Couldn’t find it thur either but knew that it was somewhere yonder in the deep blue arrrrr.
Oh well. Jess and I are great, just another story to tell….
I decide to look on the internet and stumbled across Keith Wille on metaldetectionkeithwille.com. Keith is a treasure hunter/diver/metal detector user from New London, CT and he had some great reviews on the web site. So, I sent him a message about my stupidity and he responded almost instantly.
I met him during low tide at the beach today. He was metal detecting on the beach and ventured into the water up to his waist. After about an hour of him finding diamonds, treasure chests and bricks of gold, he had no luck finding my ring. It was football Sunday and I was starting to feel bad for him searching for a cracker jack ring. Soon after that, I figured he was calling it quits because he put his metal detector and shovel down. He looked over to me, reached into his treasure bag and pulled out my ring.
Keith Wille, YOU’RE THE MAN and I want everyone to know.”
