On August 3rd I received a text about a lost ring, Ashley seemed distressed about losing her ring on Monday, while she gaving her pups a bath in the yard next to the house, the rings slung off her hand into the thick grass. She had one pup in her arms and seemed to think she knew where they went and the area they may have landed. She got down on hands and knees that first night looking for the wedding ring and bands that fell from her hand. Over the course of the next two days she went and bought a metal detector and tried her luck at finding the ring to no avail. She then searched the internet for help. She stumbled upon the Ring Finders site and was amazed that there was such a group.
I returned the text and began asking about the ring and where she lost it. I called to get the address and let her know that I would be on my way. After about an hour drive I arrived, spoke to Ashley and she showed me the area where she believed the ring fell. There was a catch, the yard guy had just mowed the area and Ashley was depressed that she may never see her rings again. After listening to her about the rings and area, I retrieved my XP Deus 2 from my Jeep. I started my search near the area that she marked, after a swing or two, the deus 2 made the sound I was looking for. The grass was difficult to manage with the clippings still covering the ground. I used my pinpointer to narrow down the signal and found both the band and the wedding ring. I looked at Ashley and said to her “found them”, she looked amazed that I could find them so quickly. I told her that it helped that she knew about the area where the rings fell. She was all smiles after that and was a very happy person, Like always, it is a great feeling to be able to return a lost ring to someone, see their big smiles and learn what it means to the people who lost it.
