Clyde Longworth hold J.C. Smith's ring found in the Gulf
Clyde Longworth hold J.C. Smith's ring found in the Gulf
For a second time in as many years, Clyde Longworth, of Galveston, has located a lost ring.  In December of 2012 he located an extremely valuable diamond wedding heirloom ring off the seawall in Galveston.  Then on October 20, 2014 he located a University of Houston class ring in the Gulf just off West Beach near the Terramar Beach community.

This second finding was a déjà vu moment for Clyde.  In December of 2012 he was asked by a friend if he had seen the ad in the Galveston Daily News for a lost wedding ring.  He had not but promptly viewed the newspaper ad, gathered his metal detecting equipment, and started searching the area where the ring was lost.  Clyde found the ring after a few hours and the owner was thrilled.

Again, on October 20, 2014 a friend asked if he had seen a lost and found ad in the Galveston Daily News for a lost college ring.  His reply was the same as before, “No”.  Clyde once again viewed the ad, gathered his high-tech metal detecting equipment, and proceeded to the Terramar Beach community in search of treasure.  In less than five hours he found the lost ring, called the owner and made arrangements for its return.

This incident restores my faith in humanity (rings owner).  I believe that humans are born good and are well intentioned.  However, in today’s world with seemingly bad things occurring every second, I was convinced my ring was forever lost.  Either permanently buried in the Gulf of Mexico, within a sand dune somewhere, a pawn shop, or melted down along with other precious metals for the money.  The odds of my rings being returned were right up there with Power Ball and Mega Millions, 1 in 175 million chances.

My ring was found and returned and now I’m on my way to purchase a Lottery ticket.

Thanks, Clyde Longworth, for your refresher course in the humanities.

J C Jones
