on thursday and friday evenings frank and i visited antique jewelry shops in the portland area. our favorite was maloy's for their knowledge and helpfulness. while there i feel in love with a 1930's art deco ring after hearing its story and seeing how it sparkled in the sunlight. thank you, frank (and eve)!
soon after i called home to share the good news with my family. my mom teased me for being so gullible and believing frank's ploy of the delayed ring pick up.
(frank jumps with joy.)
