My sister called me tonight from Cloud Nine. Four years ago, she realized that Nana’s engagement ring had gone missing. Nana was our maternal grandmother. She got married in 1913, and the ring was typical of that era – a platinum filigreed setting with a single diamond.
Tonight, my sister was cleaning off her dresser and dumped out a little basket she keeps there as a catch-all, and out tumbled the ring, tangled up in a piece of yarn. She said she’s dumped that basket out plenty of times in the last four years, and she doesn’t understand how she didn’t discover the ring there before now.
I wish she’d send me some of her St. Anthony mojo to find a couple of things i’ve lost!
So have you had any happy recoveries of lost items?
