Jim called me on Sunday afternoon about his lost gold wedding band.
Jim told me that he had come home from the gym last week and had his wedding band and keys in his hand before he entered his house. So he wouldn’t lose his ring, Jim put the ring into one of his boots that were on the front porch and would get it after his shower.
Well, after his shower, Jim came out onto the front porch and went to dump the ring out of his boot into his hand but the ring fell out, hit the porch and bounced towards the front garden.
He immediately tried to locate the ring in the garden with no luck. He looked for it again a few more times and still couldn’t seem to find it so he got online and found me.
I was able to meet with Jim tonight at his home in Etobicoke, and got the full story again.
I grabbed my gear and entered into the garden and began my search.
I kept getting drawn to this plastic box/valve cover right beside the porch and turned my gear off and grabbed my flashlight.
Rings are pretty sneaky little things and if they can find a way to hide, they will. Trust me.
I thought, what if the ring bounced off the plastic box and jumped through one of the holes in the lattice work around the porch.??
I tried to see if I could see the ring from the box side of the porch but didn’t see anything. So, I moved around to the front of the porch and aimed the light towards the box on the other side and sure enough, I spotted the ring right away. Just laying there on it’s side.
That’s exactly what the ring had done. Hit the box, and hopped through a hole and out of view.
You can run, but you can’t hide rings .!!!
I told Jim I found it and showed him where his ring had been camping out for the last week.
Jim pulled up the plastic box so he could get his hand under the porch and pulled his ring out.
This was a pretty fast recovery. Maybe ten minutes tops.
Really happy I was able to help out Jim and thank you so much for the generous reward.
It helps me keep my service going and doing what I love to do.
