It's In the Bag

It was 10 days before Thanksgiving, 2012.

My phone rang and it was Maura, my 20-something neighbor. She had been catching up with Facebook entries of a friend she’s known since elementary school. She noticed a rather frantic post by her friend, asking if anyone knew someone with a metal detector. Her grandmother had lost her gold wedding band and was convinced it happened while bagging fall leaves in her yard.

I hadn’t been out detecting for months, so I put fresh batteries in my Whites Spectrum XLT. The next afternoon, Maura and I drove the short distance to Kay’s house. We had a beautiful, crisp fall day for “the hunt”. Just in case we had success, I also brought my digital camera to record a “happy ending”.
 
Using my custom-modified Jewelry/Coin program on the XLT, I was confident that if the ring passed near my coil, I’d hear it. If the ring was indeed in one of the three leaf bags, I was hoping it wasn’t at the center, which was about nine inches from the outside of the bag and possibly more difficult to detect. I also did not want to dump the leaves out on the lawn but it might come to that.

From the start of the actual search to when Kay put the ring on her finger, it took only about 15 minutes, the shortest time I’ve ever spent searching for a lost ring. What a feeling to be able to find and return that sweet lady’s ring !
