Browsing Reddit noticed a post for advice on metal detecting. It described how his friend had lost his ring while spreading straw over his newly seeded lawn. They went out and rented a metal detector, but came to realize, there was a lot of metal in their yard. One person even posted a link to my craigslist ad for metal detecting services. They contacted me and we set up a meeting on Saturday morning.
Very nice couple, even offered me a pair of shoes to wear, first I thought it was because they didn’t want me tearing up their new lawn with my boots. I must have had a puzzled look on my face, so she explained that they had a dog and there might be some surprises laying around. Can’t say I haven’t done that before metal detecting! Husband felt pretty strongly that it was in one section of the yard, so that’s where I started. I made one pass down to the back of the yard and was coming back up when I found it, it was right where he thought it should be! One previously lost wedding ring = happy husband and wife.
