The Roller Coaster Ride on Life's Learning Curve

"There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." I 'm sorry, but if the guy wasn't president... A comedian would pay good money for that silliness. (An old saying in Tennessee...?)

The reason that Bushism popped into my mind this morning was my attempt to remember the old saying about how it seems you know less and less as you get older. I can't remember the quote. (Though I could have helped Bush out...) But, honestly, I'm ready to be an expert in something besides envelop stuffing and weeding. I just made a ring for Ravenwolf and, after finishing I looked at it and thought I'd do so many things differently. Here's the ring....


What I like best are the sides, and Suzanne's SO's emblem. Very cool emblem. I carved the ring out of wax, got it casted into silver, and the emblem is from some scrap 14k gold wire I had. I should have approached this ring differently. (<--- massive understatement.) But, ah, whatever. On back are the initials "R" and "S" with the bottom part of the R and S interlocking in what I hope is reminiscent of a wishbone. Hope it brings her luck!

*the frontal pics of the ring didn't turn out... may add a pic later.*
