Default I got to be someone's hero today

My cousin's 8 year old daughter lost a pendant her grandmother (my aunt) gave her last year right before she passed away. The chain it was on came apart while she was running through a neighbor's yard. She found the chain but not the pendant. They called and I brought over the XLT, and started searching the neighbor's yard she lost it in. Found it after about 20 min. What a great feeling!

Not that I've found much, but the smile on that little face was definately worth more to me than anything else I've found!

Nice work!
Good karma. If not for you that pendant would most likely have been lost forever.
Well done!
