Slice of Life Challenge 15 | grad ring


When Jim was in high school, he gave his grad ring to his girlfriend to wear. She lost it. Almost 30 years later, a high school friend contacted Jim through Facebook saying someone had his ring and was looking for him. Way back when, a gentleman found the ring in the lost & found of a restaurant where he worked. His wife noticed the initials and the high school name. Time got away on them and they moved a number of times, but they kept the ring with them, thinking someday they would find the owner. They did and mailed it to us here in Canada. Hard to believe it was returned after so many years! How thoughtful of them. Side note: Jim, if I had been your girlfriend in high school, I would never have lost your ring! Wink!

  2. Holy cow! Now that's a fun story! I guess Facebook can reunite more than people. What a story the ring could tell over all these years.
