The other day I posted about finding a gold wedding ring during a ride. Not something you see everyday, so I posted it on Craigslist and called it a day.
Well, since then, I’ve found myself scanning the road ahead of me while on climbs. It seemed silly and pointless, but it’s sort of like winning the lottery or hitting the jackpot at a casino, where you figure it happened once, so surely it’ll happen again. Right? As it turns out, yeah, that’s right.
While on the last leg of my ride yesterday, nearing the top of my last climb, a very shiny object caught my eye. My first reaction was that it must just be a shiny washer, except that no washer shines quite like that. I hit my brakes, back-tracked a few yards, and picked up a shiny titanium wedding ring. It’s more scratched up that the gold one, but it’s still in decent shape. It’s engraved, this time with a first name, so maybe that’ll help track down the owner a little better.
Here’s a link to the Craigslist ad I posted.
So, what do you want to bet I’m going to be able to keep my eyes on the road now? Third time’s a charm… maybe I’ll find my original wedding ring, next.
