I had to post this story because it is so unusual...maybe it was posted before, but I think it deserves another post.

How it ended up on a carrrot:

Quote:"The carrot was sprouting in the middle of the ring. It is quite incredible," her husband Ola said to the newspaper.

The couple believe the ring fell into a sink back in 1995 and was lost in vegetable peelings that were turned into compost or fed to their sheep.

Yeah I'd read that too, it's a cool story!

I thought I'd lost my ring. I was doing something -I forget, maybe chopping wood- something I didn't want to do wearing it so put it in my front pocket. Forgot it when I had a shower and left my jeans lying on the b/r floor. The dog went in and thought the jeans were a great toy, dragged them all over the l/r, the ring was gone and I thought he ate it, at that puppy stage he ate everything. So I sifted through his poop for nearly 2 weeks then gave up. We found it under the couch when we moved. lmao.gif

My sister lost her wedding set while swimming one of the lakes here in Ontario. I wonder if it would be a lucrative business buying a metal detector and taking long walks along lake shores. I could think of worse jobs to do in life.

It's quite a fun pastime I've heard. You'd find a lot of bottle caps but might get lucky now and then. Fall would be the time to do it.

Looking in the Fall makes sense and I'd have to wear wading boots...hmmmm...it's a possibility in my retirement years. If we ever get to Salmon Arm and settle there, I need to take walks anyway so why not along the lake shore there.

Glad to hear your work week is shortened Shadow, we all need more time to play. All work and no play....you know.

cheers.gif

I'm thinking more like poking around with a stick in it. But yes, we need more details.

I'm only asking because hubby wants to get dogs when we retire, and somehow I don't think he will be the one sifting through dog poop.

So did you cover your hand with a plastic baggie and feel around in the poop filled bag for your rings? Or, did you use a designated sifter, put the poop in the sifter, then run water through it? What method did you use? rofl.gif
