Clemson Ring Stories

Lost in London

About halfway though a flight from London (Gatwick) to Atlanta I realized that I had taken my ring off

Hopefully Not Three Times!

In 1995, I was attending a conference in Monterey, California, 3000 miles from home. One night, a group of us decided to have a bonfire on the beach. For some reason, I took my ring off and put it in the pocket of my jacket along with my keys.
