Default On it's way.......

Another owner found. This one is an active service member in the U.S.Army. The ring was found on an old abandoned ski slope three days ago. My wife tracked him down,( like a blood hound) and we talked to him this morning. Too far to drive and hand deliver it, so I over-nighted it to him. Should be back in his hands by 3 pm tomorrow. Found and returned in less than a week!
He seemed a bit surprised that someone wanted to return it. I told him that's what "we" do. Also thanked him for his service.

Cliff.

Fantastic! Is that rust or dirt on the ring?

If your wife doesn't work for the US intelligence community, she might just want to check into that...she seems like a good candidate!
