I received a phone call on Tuesday from Brandy. She was obviously panicking as she told me she just lost her expensive platinum and diamond engagement ring. She asked if I would travel to Huntington Beach State Park to help her locate her ring that she just dropped into the powder dry sand. I told Brandy that I would be there in 30 minutes. After postponing an appointment, I was on my way.
I arrived at the beach to find a distraught Bandy informing me that the ring would be in that pile of sand between two chairs. After moving the chairs I scanned the appointed pile of sand and did not get a response. I said “The ring is not there” as I could feel Brandy’s, and everybody else in the family, anxieties rise. I quickly started looking in another direction, and just a few feet away was a nice low tone on the CTX 30-30. There it is! I carefully sent my sand scoop into the sand and missed the target. Just before I went to scoop again a niece lying nearby waved me off as she could see the ring just inside the hole I just made. Handing the ring to Brandy, she immediately put her hands on her knees trying to regain her composure. “The Ring Dance”. This week marks Brandy’s and husband Kris’ 1 year anniversary. Happy Anniversary!
