Default Ring Headed Home

After almost 5 months the class ring is on its way home.
After e-mails to the school in Cairo which connected me
with the parents of the student and the student himself,
i finally have an address to mail the ring to. I hate to see
the ring go as it was my first class ring. When i was just
out of High School i also lost my class ring. one day a local
mail man found the ring and went thru the trouble of finding the owner.
I guess that is why i have hunted for the owner so hard as sort of payment for my ring being returned.

That is a handsome looking ring. You will get 25 karma points deposited in your karma bank for what you have done.

You did a wonderful thing Anode and will be rewarded someday somehow! When I find my first class ring I hope I can track that person down just like you have. I know some people in this hobby don't agree with returning things that can be returned which in my opinion is very disheartening to say the least.

Nice story. Nice ring . The gods will replace it with something I' sure.
Did the Greeks or the Romans have a god of MDing. If not we could
call him or her FINDINGUSSTUFF:spin:

Great going! I am in the process of trying to return a girl's class ring, but cannot get the school to answer my e-mails. I'm not giving up, though. You will be blessed with good luck.
