On Thursday August 1st I had a call from Aubrey about her boyfriend Roger’s lost gold ring.
Roger and Aubrey had been out walking in a local park with their new dog Thor in Guelph, Ontario when Thor suddenly got loose of his collar and took off.
Aubrey and Roger gave chase and when they caught him, Roger had to wrestle with Thor to get his collar on again. This is when they think Roger’s ring must have slipped off.
After looking for the lost ring with no luck, they went out and purchased a metal detector and tried to locate it again on Thursday and Friday. Again with no luck.
After talking to Aubrey about the ring, we decided I would come up this morning, Saturday August 3rd and help them take a look for it.
I made it into Guelph around 9:30am, and met up with Roger and Aubrey.
We talked for a bit and then I grabbed my gear and we headed over to the park which is close by.
After getting into the park, they gave me a few more details and I thought I’d try and get lucky finding the ring without having to run my grid lines. No luck.
We started again, this time after running a proper grid, and about 30 minutes into the search, I got a really nice signal in my headphones.
After pinpointing the area and parting the grass, I saw Roger’s beautiful white gold ring staring back at me and left it exactly where it was laying.
Not saying anything about the ring, I asked Aubrey for some bottled water.
When she was going to get it, I told her I wasn’t thirsty, I just wanted to rinse off Roger’s ring. I could see her processing what I had just said and after a second, she spun around and asked if I had found it.
I love doing things like that. I love the reactions.
I took Roger and Aubrey over to where the ring was located so they could see where it had been hiding for the last few days.
After getting a few photos, we packed up my gear and headed back to my car.
Really happy I could help you guys out today.
It was a pleasure meeting you both and thank you so much for the very generous reward.
I really appreciate it and it helps me keep my service going and doing what I love to do.
