Man with found braceletIt’s great to have a hobby where you can not only find valuable items, but sometimes you can make someone’s day by returning something lost long ago.  Check out this article that describes just such a situation.

So imagine the surprise that University of Manitoba psychology Prof. Michael Lebow felt when he answered his phone several weeks ago.A man with a metal detector had come across the silver bracelet in about one metre of water.“He said, ‘Did you lose a bracelet a couple of years ago?’ I said, ‘I haven’t been there in half a century,’” Lebow said.
