I have looked for jewelry so much that it has become a habit, and sometimes I even find items without a detector.
While visiting a local pool, I found a beautiful diamond earring. Over the next couple of weeks, I asked the lifeguards if anyone reported it in lost & found.
I was about to place an ad in the local community newsletter when one of the lifeguards remembered a note on their bulletin board. Someone named Ann did report it the day it was lost, and there was a note with her number! I called Ann and she came to my home to retrieve her earring. I very much appreciate her generous reward, which I donated to Fisher House. It is a great feeling to know this lovely earring got back to the rightful owner.
