Saturday call for Help!

A 10 am call on Saturday morning is not something i usually expect from a number not listed in my contacts :-)

No, that wasn't a call from a Nigerian prince who wanted to transfer his fortune to New Zealand and urgently need my help.. :D

The call from a couple who lost their Platinum wedding ring in dry sand at Kohimarama, but not today...
The ring was lost on Wednesday...

 Couple and their friends already spent several days searching for it without luck and that is when one of their friends found my webside

As they knew the area where ring was lost, i slowly start covering the area , 1st targret bottle top, second bring aluminum top, then rubbish, rubbish again. ..
...Bingo :-) -very close to stairs and metal poles where detector already was chattering from big metal objects..

Good happy ending :-)
I do wish for more of such call outs as there were a number of people watching and celebrated when the ring was reunited with the owner :-)

Good everyone out there this weekend!
