So Ive been married for about 5months and being the diligent husband I am, I was digging out the truck so I can fo to work. My position is considered essential, no matter what.


So I slipped and lost my ring. As soon as I felt it slip off I thought "listen for it"................. no dice.... fuck.... Im so bummed because that ring REALLY meant alot to me (duh) and i was hopping to buy some MRE's and ammo in the next few weeks....

does anyone have a metal detector I could borrow? its a large ring and Im sure we could find it fast, I know it is in about a 10ft radius....

ammo and deer meat is in it for you!!!!!

OK, guess you didn't like the original idea...

Shovel snow into buckets. Plug the bathtub, fill with hot water, dump snow into bathtub?

I wont be up in Nova until mid-Feb. for the Nations Gun Show but if you can wait until then, I can find it. I've done alot of these for folks.

hey.....that reminds me - the last guy promised me gas money when I found his platinum wedding band that he pitched after fighting with the old lady.

and yes, I'm still waiting on that gas money (from last year) :(

Im gonna hit it with a shovel again after work maybe some daylight will help.

I'm at work, once you get out of the neighborhoods, its reasonable. People use to laugh at my Expedition until they watched me put it into 4H and plow thru a 2 foot snowbank to get the truck moving over the snowplow trails.

I have the detector in the truck if you need it, email me.

I'm glad this thread ended happily! Yeah Olivers_AR is a good dude.

This is excellent news!

Swami Oliver, I too need wedding ring help!

I lost it two weeks ago, at a restaurant fire at the intersection of Georgia Ave. & New Hampshire Ave NW. I heard it come off - it landed between the curry out, and the bail bondsmans office.

Oh well...

Happy for the OP though... I was pretty bummed out when I lost mine. Wife was 'somewhat' understanding for me...
