Well my computer if finally back home with a brand new motherboard and processor. I don’t know what either one of those things are, but my computer works. Yeah.
I have a non food related story to tell you all.
About 4 years ago my house was burglarized. Meaningless things were stolen like computers and DVD players. However non replaceable things were taken as well. Like ALL of my jewelry, jewelry that I had had all of my life..my first “diamond” ring that I got from my first love in 5th grade, my grandmothers High School graduation ring, my Graduation ring, family heirlooms pieces, pricey watches, etc. Overall about $25,000 worth of jewelry in 3 separate jewelry boxes. Not to mention, my best friend Bobbi was keeping her jewelry box at my house because her house was being remodeled and she knew it would be safe at my house. Well that was gone as well.
Today I get a letter in the mail saying someone might have found a class ring that belonged to me based on the name engraved inside. I was hesitant to call because I thought it might be a scam of some sort. but I called anyway.
A man with a heavy Southern accent picked up the phone. He said he uses a metal detector on the beach all the time and he always finds gold that people have dropped at the beach. I described my ring to him and it was a match! He said he has had the ring in his possession for a couple of years but has never found a name match. I just recently added my maiden name to my facebook account. He said he was looking through some scrap gold he has found over the years and he decided to see if he could locate the name on the ring again. He went to Facebook, typed in the name on the inside of the ring again and FOUND ME!
Pretty darn cool huh?
How do you repay someone for such kindness?
