Found the wedding ring
Strange place, went to refill the water bottle I keep at the side of the bed. Heard a weird clonking sound which I took to be unmelted ice, when out popped the ring, saved only by the sink stopper. Someone up there is looking after us. Emotional time for us both, what are the chances?

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

You can get rings resized at good jewellers. I need to get my ring expanded as my fingers are fatter now and my NF has more fibromas around the ring site.

I have had my ring resized twice since 1976, I gained a lot of weight, then lost it again, hence the reason it it too big now tweetiepooh. Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

I called up Amazon about a refund on an item, got a very helpful person that tried to sort out a problem.

I didn't expect the email I got afterwards, but it did make me smile.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Our VM V6 died (hard disk failure) Monday evening, tech came out this afternoon and replaced like for like, and waited until all the software had downloaded (it takes longer for the V6 s/w to download than the 360, apparently), then checked it was all hunky-dory before he left.

Good service from VM.
