This Christmas, under a bridge, I battled a giant troll for a gold ring! When he was distracted by tourists taking selfies, I snatched a lost heirloom from under his gaze and returned it to its rightful owner!
A woman lost her mother’s wedding ring, inscribed with her father’s name, while throwing snowballs at the troll on Xmas eve. She was just visiting this state for the holiday, so it was crucial she find it before her flight out of Seattle. After renting a metal detector, searching and not having any luck, her friend found my name on Google. She called me Christmas morning and I was on the case in a couple hours.
Luckily after around half an hour of searching, I hit the target! Buried in the snow was her ring! I was super happy to help and I got out of there quick before the troll knew what had happened…
Gold ring snatched from the Troll!
Gold ring in the snow
Received a call Monday evening from Eric stating he lost his wedding ring over the weekend. The ring came of his finger while playing volleyball in about 5 ft of water. He and his friends searched for two hours without any luck…
We made arrangements to meet Tuesday evening after work. He was headed to PA on Weds and then out of the country for several weeks.
It was a fairly small search, 15 x 15, in one corner of a roped off swimming area. After going over that area pretty well, for about an hour, we started to expand the search. Shortly after that, I had a good signal in roughly 4 feet of water. Using a homemade digging tool with a mesh bag attached, I raked the bottom and pulled it up out of the water. There in the bottom of the bag was a ring. I swung it over to him and asked him “What does that look like to you?
He didn’t see it at first, but when he did, he gave me a look of disbelief with a side of grin. He reached in, pulled it out, and promptly put it back on his finger.
I’m pretty sure he made a phone call to his wife shortly after we parted ways.
Eric, it was a pleasure meeting you and thanks for giving us a call. Tony
