The Ring

Months ago I lost my wedding ring. I noticed it was missing while I was making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Earlier that day, I had been fiddling with the ring, pushing it up past the knuckle and spinning it while I waited for a computer anti virus program to finish its work. The ring had to be between the computer room and the kitchen and I searched for it relentlessly.
The day I lost the ring the financial markets began to collapse. I am certain that these two events at linked. If I could find the ring then the markets might stabilize. At various festivals I had tried on mood rings and artsy wood and silver rings but none fit. Also Terry didn't approve of my choices.
I decided for Terry's birthday to finally go to P.J. Abramson, Inc. a good jewelry store in Winter Park and get a traditional gold band. The first ring the sales lady showed me was 24 carrot gold and it cost $2000. I almost had a heart attack, thank god it didn't fit. The second ring was a bit more reasonable and it slipped right on, a perfect fit. After the purchase I explained that I would like to sketch the store. The manager was concerned that I might sketch the security system but reluctantly let me proceed. Notice no video cameras or even wires were drawn in the making of this picture.

Little did you realize you lost The One ring from Lord of the Rings! You know it won't rain again until you find it!

I do realize that the new ring has had little to no impact on the financial markets. I must find the one true ring to bring about such change. It did rain today though. Hmmmm.

Hey all you Analog Digital Artists fans out there. I have been a silent observer of this site for too long. Is there no one else out there that doesn't feel a need to make a comment of sympathy to Thor's wife on Thor's tragic loss of his wedding band. And as for the financial markets, the S & P is suddenly testing to a breakout upside of it's 200 day moving average (that's huge) Coincidence? I don't think so.

I sympathize.
