Set of keys

My brother and I were hunting a local park and we had just called it a day and was walking back to the truck when I spotted a glint and went over and found a set of keys. I told my brother somebody will be back looking for these, so we hung them in a tree in plan sight and hoped they would see them. So about a week later I was back in the area by myself and the keys were still hanging in the tree. After that I kind of forgot about the keys. So my brother and I were back in that area and now it had been a little better than 2 weeks. I was down digging a hole and heard my brother kind of yelling at some body on the road below me so I pulled off my headphones and a lady was yelling back wanting to know if we had found any keys. Being I was closer to the road than my brother I just took it from there. I walked them up to the tree and the keys were still there and I got them down and the look on her face was like are you believing that. She showed me one key on the ring and said it was the only one they had to get into their car with and she was riding around with the other lady that was with her. She thanked me and took off.

That kind of made my day.
