Karla was raking up leaves and pulling some weeds in her back yard when she noticed her engagement ring was missing. It was a very sentimental ring because it belonged to her husband’s grandmother. The ring fit loosely and Karla was sure it had slipped off somehow during the process taking her gloves off and putting them back on several times as she worked.
Karla did a very thorough job searching. She kept all the leaves and weeds and debris in one place and searched it all thoroughly. She even rented a metal to detector, but it kept going off on random metal objects and was ultimately no help. She even searched all of the gloves she had just to be sure the ring wasn’t inside one of them.
I agreed to come out to search after work. We searched all of the likely areas where Karla was working and then searched it all again to no avail. So we widened our search area and soon after I got the familiar sound of gold on my metal detector. The ring was laying in the grass well away from where we figured it should be. Karla was thrilled to get her ring back on her finger!
