100-Word True Sto­ries

Reader's Digest - - Contents -

My hus­band lost his wed­ding ring while work­ing in the yard. We looked ev­ery­where for it but de­cided it was no use to con­tinue search­ing by hand, so I bought a metal de­tec­tor. When the ma­chine didn’t seem to be work­ing, I tossed a nickel into the grass. My hus­band moved to­ward it with the de­tec­tor, but noth­ing hap­pened. I bent down to pick up the nickel and saw his ring about a foot away. I couldn’t be­lieve my luck. I’ll never for­get that mo­ment—and I’m go­ing to keep that nickel for­ever.
