Martha called me to see if I was available to do a search for her wedding band and engagement ring. They had been thrown during an argument (which is not uncommon), and believed to have fallen somewhere in her yard. I let her know I would be there that day to do the search for her.

When I got there Martha showed me the backyard which was mostly swimming pool with a rather small patch of dirt and grass at the other end. She said they had searched the pool, and also spent a lot of time searching the dirt which was soft, and could have hidden the rings, so I went to work. I searched the area with no luck. I then went over the area again in case I had missed something; nothing again. I told her the rings were not in her yard, so we may need to go and ask the neighbor behind her for permission to search her yard, which she agreed to do. We got to the neighbor’s door, and Martha spoke with her (the neighbor only spoke Spanish). Then the craziest thing happened. The neighbor told Martha she found the rings, and threw them away in her trash can! I couldn’t believe it, and felt like yelling out, ARE YOU CRAZY, but kept my cool in order to gain favor with this lady. Anyway she led us to her trash can, and after pulling out about 5 or 6 bags of trash there were 2 rings; one was Martha’s wedding band, the other was a ring the lady happened to also find; a cheap stainless ring. We still needed to find the engagement ring, so we asked if we could search the rest of her yard, which she agreed to. I began on the grass, and then searched the flower beds; nothing again. The lady told Martha she was getting impatient with us there, and was hinting to have us leave, but Martha pressed a little more. It was then the lady looked into a bucket on her patio (that was covered), and saw the engagement ring. The ring had bounced under the covered patio into the bucket; amazing! Anyway, sometimes our process is a process of elimination, and being able to tell a person where their ring isn’t, instead of where it is, in order to proceed to look elsewhere for a successful recovery. Needless to say Martha was very relieved and happy to have her rings back.
