A few years back in the south of france an old vine field i had been driving past most days had been all pulled up and to my nice surprise one day had been cleared and rolled i had no idea whos land it was but the temptation was to much so i plucked up some courage and got on the case after a few hours of bits n bobs bing up pops a gold ring mega stoked with a tingle down my spine i wandered whos it might have been, of i went again for a good half hour then out of the corner of my eye i spoted an old lady walkin her dog along the old track next to the field as i was almost finishing my line i said bonjour she greeted me and asked what i was looking for i replied things lost by chance n anything of metal in the ground she smiled and said very well, i actually own this field and all the others around it ( i went bright red ) i replied,im sorry, she smiled and said its ok then proceaded to explaine that her now blind brother who lives with her again lost his family gold ring many years ago picking grapes :blink: i pulled the ring i had found out and the look on her face was amazing, pure joy she couldnt belive it she invited me back to hers i went with her watched as she put the ring in her brothers hand he then shed some tears and gave me a propper french style cheek to cheek lol i have kept in contact ever since, it has opened up many doors for land to detect down in provence. alas the brother has passed away now but i am so happy he got his ring back wich now the oldest son wears
