KKW + CEN 6-12-04
This is my very first blog posting and the subject is not so cheery. On Christmas day we were snorkeling out in Little Lameshur Bay on St. John Island, part of the US Virgin Islands, and I lost my wedding ring. I think it came off just a few feet off shore in the middle of the beach. I was getting stung by a jellyfish as I was coming in and thrashing around in the process of getting my stuff off when it probably slipped away. The search and rescue failed. I had figured I would grow old with that ring. So I am hoping against the odds that someone someday will be looking for fishies, or perhaps combing around with a metal detector, and come up with my symbol of eternal marriage. There is an inscription that reads "KKW + CEN 6-12-04". It turns out I don't have many good photos with me and my ring, but here are a few. Hopefully if someone finds it they'll google the inscription, find this blog post, and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Until then I'll be wearing a paper ring.
