On Thursday December 17th I received a phone call from a golfing buddy of mine. Eldon said that a friend of both of ours, Cleve, had lost his gold ring while running Christmas lights around the eve of his house. He wanted to know if I could meet Cleve at his residence. I advised him I would be there in about an hour.
I gathered my equipment and was at the residence in Early Texas within the hour. I met with Cleve and he advised the following had happened. On Saturday December 12th he had been installing Christmas lights along the eve of his house. He had finished, then went to the bathroom to wash his hands . At that time he noticed the ring was missing from his finger.
Cleve was almost 100% sure he would have lost it while installing the lights. He knew it was missing immediately after he finished, when he went to wash his hands. Although, he wasn’t positive it was on when he started. He strongly felt he would have noticed it being gone.
The lights were strung on the front and both sides of the residence. While facing the residence the left side had Holly Shrubs all along the wall and they were as high as the eve of the residence. The front had knee to waist high shrubs and the right side had no shrubs.
I began searching the ground with my Etrac. I searched for near 1 hour on the ground as much as I could with my Etrac. The next search would be conducted by me crawling up under the shrubs and between them and the wall. I had my Garrett AT Pinpointer for this search so I could get to the areas I had not been able to reach with my detector.
I crawled under and around behind the shrubs scanning the ground and up into the shrubs as far as I could reach . I had the AT Pinpointer set on the third level of sensitivety. It can reach as far as 6 inches or more with it set at this setting. Again, I searched for near an hour without finding the ring. The final search would be searching the top area of the tall Holly Shrubs.
I started near the back of the residence on the left side of the residence where the shrubs reached the eve of the house. I scanned all through the first shrub with the Pinpointer . It was clear, then the second and it was clear. I started on the final shrub scanning the side as I ran my pinpointer all around and into the shrub as far as I could reach. I then went around to the front side of the shrub at the corner of the residence. I ran the pinpointer in as far I could reach and I received a quick vibration and beep as I wiggled it around. I then slowly moved it around until I got a strong vibration and beep.
I had to part the limbs and leaves with my hands so I could see inside the shrub. A few seconds later I was able to see the ring sitting lodged between three limbs that came together. It was near the middle of the shrub and eye level to me .
I left the ring and went to the door and rang the doorbell. Cleve came to the door. I told him I needed to ask another question. He said he would be out as soon as he got his shoes on. I walked to the shrub where the ring was. Cleve came out and met me. I asked him if he had been on the roof any at all. He said no. I then said well I was just curious.
Cleve started walking back towards the front door and I said “While you’re out here look right here in the shrub and tell me what you see.” He had a puzzled look on his face. He parted the limbs with his hands and looked around for a few seconds. All of a sudden this big smile came across his face and I heard this excited voice say ” My Ring !! ”
I had left the ring as I found it so Cleve could see where he had lost it and allow him to recover it. At one point while I had been searching for the ring he had sounded as though he had given up hope of ever seeing the ring again. It had been missing for 6 days.
Cleve told me the ring was very sentimental. The ring was made from his Mother and Dads rings. One was 14 kt and the other 24 kt. the two were combined to make his ring, a size 15 !!!! the 5 diamonds came from his Dads ring and the 5 rubys came from his Mothers earrings. He said there was no way it could have ever been replaced.
I received a call from a friend, Ken, who is my Pharmacist. He asked if I was still doing the metal detecting stuff. I advised him I was still metal detecting.
Ken then said he needed me to find something for him but didn’t know if I would be able to locate it with a metal detector. I said ok what is it your needing to be found ?
Ken said he owned a house in the country near Bangs. His renters called and said the septic is backed up. ken said he went out and attempted to find the cleanout for the septic tank. He was not able to locate it and was thinking about having to rent a small trackhoe or backhoe to dig around and find the tank. Then he thought about me and my metal detecting service.
I told him septic tanks have rebar in them so there was a possibility I could locate the tank for him.
I met with Ken that evening and we drove to the property. We walked around the residence but could not find any sign of a septic line.
Ken had to get back to the pharmacy. I told him I would leave the sharpshooter stuck in the ground where I thought the best location was. He advised he and his renter would dig for it afterwards.
I used my Etrac , wide open on all metal and began a search. I conducted a 2 hour search around the residence marking possible locations with surveyors flags. I finished the search and had three likely spots . I reexamined each of the three spots . I decided on one spot that seemed to have the best shape for a septic tank. While running my coil over the location I could pick out the distinct shape but was getting an even stronger signal of about a foot diameter over the weaker signals . I stuck the sharpshooter in the ground over the stronger signal.
I contacted Ken by phone. I advised him I had covered the whole area and I had left the sharpshooter stuck where I believed it might be. He thanked me and said he would go out the next day.
I received a call from Ken the next evening. He was excited to tell me that I had marked the septic tank but the most exciting part was that I had put the sharpshooter directly over the cleanout. He was very thankful.
Ken commented how much time and cost it had saved him. He would of had to take off work and rent a backhoe then took the time to dig up his yard searching for the tank. Then there was always the possibility of damaging the tank or lateral line or something else while digging. That only adding to the cost.
They dug a little over two feet to the clean out. The septic service came in and cleaned the tank and all was flushing well again. Ken and his renters were all happy again.
Saturday November 28 I was browsing through Craigslist. I found an entry for a lost silver and turquoise necklace. The entry read that the person who had lost the necklace had been walking the walk path at the city park in Lampasas. They had not left the walkway and the necklace was lost on the walkway somewhere around the loop. I made contact by the phone number provided. It requested by text only. I texted a message identifying myself and about The Ring Finders on Sunday 29th. I received a response and let them know I was willing to drive the 60 miles to attempt to locate the necklace. They strongly believed the necklace had fallen on the sidewalk and someone picked it up. I agreed but stated there was a possibility it had gone into the grass at the side of the walkway. I advised them I would give it a try.
I arrived in Lampasas at 3:00 to begin the search. I first contacted the Police Dept. and local radio station to see if anyone had found it and called it in. Both locations advised no calls had been received.
The walkway was approximately a half mile around. It was a light rain most of the day with temps in the 30’s. Later in the evening a light snow flurry came through. I searched from 3:00 till 8:00 into the dark. I searched one side all the way around then the other side around again. Searched all the parking areas. After searching the grassy area in front of the parking areas I was satisfied that someone had picked it up.
I text that I was unable to locate the necklace in the park. I contacted the Police Dept and radio station leaving contact information in case someone called that they had found the necklace.
It was still a fullfilling search for me being able to pass onto the owner of the necklace that there was closure that the necklace was not just laying in the park. I never knew if I was communicating with a male or female. No names were ever passed on to me. I advised them I would contact them again if I heard anything. There were no more reponses from them.
Hit in the head playing volleyball at moonlight beach, Encinitas. After looking for a time, they give up.
Later that day one of the Lady’s finds me on TheRingFinders.com and gives me a call. With area known I go down and dig , staples, small nails, one junk toe ring. I call back and asked a bit more. Thinking how far could it have gone. She said she watched it fly off her left shoulder. We meet the next day to discover NO DETECTOR will pick it up. Testing the one she brought.
What ? Ok time to call the troops in. I call my partner, Curtis Cox and and friend Stan Ross from up north. Stan and I come up with an idea, strianers.
Three RingFinders on their hands and knees sifting the volleyball court. 1 1/2 hrs and it comes up in Stan Ross’s sifter the othe way from what we had been told. As we try to figure out how it was there, when she got hit she turned to her right. It did fly off her left shoulder but to the right 6′.
This was a TEAM HUNT, 2 sifter $120.00. We weren’t gona miss this.
