Yes, when a man gives you a ring, wear it. Doesn't matter which finger, but wear it. It was a special gift from him, and wearing it says "I am very special to someone" which was after all, the purpose of the gift in the first place. SM definitely has a following here!
BB, you could be right. SM always thought my owl ring was a bit hippyish and weird. But I liked it enough to wear… the only ring I ever have. It just appealed to me, for whatever reasons.

When he presented it to me, he asked me to be engaged.

Me: Engaged in what? I’m happy to help you become a councillor, even though I don’t think you stand a snowball in Hell’s chance….

SM: Well, thank you for the vote of confidence….

Me: I’m just being honest….

SM: Well, regardless of all of that, will you become engaged to me?

I agreed, provided he’d take the ring back if I changed my mind.

He refused, stating I could keep it, as no one else would want an engagement ring in the shape of an owl…. More fool them!

I don’t why I’m making such a fuss about a ring, but I am!

Here’s the ring… in all its glory…. Not!
What has happened to the Cut & Paste option? It's gone tits up.
Maybe because you just hadn't considered Cupid sending a barrage of arrows in your direction at this stage in life?!
I don’t why I’m making such a fuss about a ring, but I am!
Because it's a symbol not just a thing. It's presenting you with a major life change, commitment and even potential happiness....
Would you feel differently if it were white gold with sapphires and diamonds perhaps?
Tenth time lucky. I'm trying to post a photo of my owl ring, but this site won't let me... it was so easy before.

Ahh... bugger it!

I will share a daft thing that happened a few days ago. I nearly got done for shoplifting.

I went into Home & Bargain; convinced my hair dye had come from them.

I can never remember the names of these things, so I went into the shop with an empty box (splattered with hair dye.)

I took it out of my bag, and was perusing all their hair dyes, comparing it to the empty box I had.

I was asked to come into their office. I asked why. They told me not to ask why, but to just come in.

I thought, "Great, I'm like the millionth customer, and they're going to give me like a £50 voucher or something."

The opposite happened. I was accused of shoplifting. I showed them the empty box, and a lady came up to me.

"That can't be from Home & Bargain; it's from Superdrug."

Me:How do you know? There's no sign saying Superdrug.

She: That star symbol is Superdrug....

She was right.

I eventually got the right hair dye... from Superdrug.

I don't think we've ever had adding photos as a cut 'n paste option.
you have to upload them as an attachment.

Type your message in the 'post reply' message box in the usual way
Underneath the 'post reply' message box you'll see two tabs "options" and "attachments"
Click on "attachments"
Then click on "add files" - this will open the file on your computer where you store your photos
Choose and highlight the photo you want to add and click 'open'
It will then add that photo file - shown under the 'add files' tab with the file name, file size and a green tick if it's been accepted.
Then click 'preview' to check you've got the correct photo
Finally click "submit".

It's the same as before, just looks a bit different. The only real difference is that the photo will always be placed at the end of your message (you can't add any text after it, or at least I haven't found of way of doing that yet !).
:roll: Followed your instructions to the Enth degree... still can't post photos. :-???

Trying it AGAIN now:

Attachments

:D I did it!!!!

God knows how, but I did it.

I should point out that I photoed it up-side-down, as the blasted thing kept slipping off, on a anti-germ thingy, and then reversed it.

Have you ever tried to photo a ring on your hand using just one hand! It's not easy; all the photos were as blurry as hell.

Still, where there's a way, there's a will.... or something like that.

Thanks, Suisque :shock:
Sajehar. It's lovely! Unique and should be treasured!
