Now You Know, too
Now I'll let you in on a secret.... Yesterday with goggles snapped tight over my eyes I could see through the water to Rinconada's leaf clogged drain, as I swam laps in the deep end.. The leaves were smaller and there weren't as many but long ago... even before I thought of getting married... I found half of my wedding band on the bottom of that very pool. I was cleaning the bottom with breathing gear strapped round my head and a long handled broom in my hands when I noticed a glint in the pile of leaves. The simple gold band held a beautiful red ruby. I turned it in to the lost and found but at the end of the summer, when no one had claimed it, it was mine. After my accidient I had the stone and my wedding band combined, because I had to resize the ring anyway and I had always loved the red of that glittering stone. Interesting that the two main loves of my life, swimming and Ted, are connected.
