Two-ring wedding band recovery for Dianna in Lexington

Dianna emailed me about having her rings missing in the back yard – but that her 3-year-old had told her pretty much where they were lost.  “Behind the tree” she said.  So that’s where I started looking.  Running with my ring program on the Minelab E-trac, I turned the sensitivity down and low tones up.  “Can slaw” from previous owners made this a bit more challenging.

After 30 minutes “behind the tree,” nothing.   So I began detecting the path between the house and the tree – figuring it’s hard for a 3-year-old to hold onto anything that long, let alone report where they had it.  I began to think of the Family Circusfamily-circus-monster comic about how kids move about

Within 10 more minutes, the first ring rang in.  Within 2 more minutes, ring number 2 was there.  It felt great to hand them to Dianne.

Dianna was pretty happy to see her rings again!  I’m guessing the three-year-old won’t be playing with them from here on!
