This is a significant week for me, for in 1966, ancient memories of a young woman and a GI going to the PX to buy an engagement ring. I was shy and picked out a simple white gold with small diamond. I’m still not a fan of big jewelry or clustered diamonds. My choice was a plain gold band, but my fiancé wanted to buy a diamond ring for me. Since we were going to be separated after that week for four months, it was nice to look at it and dream. I’m still wearing the plain gold band but the diamond ring is long gone. I have never taken the band off and don’t think I could, emotionally.
I know the Prompt is wire and my thoughts have been on the above event as they are every year during this week, but for the prompt I would offer how wired people seem to be in the stores these days. Dangerous already and I’m glad I’m not going out in it. It is scary thinking about living here with the open carry law, and seems everyone feels free to display weapons everywhere, that these wired people may get carried away. At least we do not have crowded cities here. Stay healthy and safe and definitely keep your sense of humor.
