While out detecting today I received a call from Ian who told me how he had lost his wedding ring after surfing yesterday, and wanted help in finding it. I arranged to meet his employee Dave in about 1 1/2 hours because of Los Angeles traffic. Ian and Dave had been surfing yesterday, but before they entered the water Ian realized he still had his ring on, so prudentially he removed it and put in his tight fitting wetsuit and went into the water. After a good session of gliding on the water, he got back to the car, and proceeded to take off the wetsuit forgetting for a moment that the ring was there. It didn’t take long for him to realize that it had disappeared into the beach sands.
Well I met Dave at the appointed spot, and he showed me where they thought it might have fallen. I then got to work, finding bottle caps and other pieces of metal. It took about 10 minutes, and then there was that sound I was expecting. Dave had done well to put me in the right spot, which saved time in the search. he told me that Ian had been distraught over the loss, so I knew there would be joy in his house tonight, and sweet sleep. So happy to be of service, and to supply joy to those who have lost the things that mean so much.
Ian sent the following testimonial:
