Found Earring

Posted in Family, Jon Crispin, Nature by joncrispin on 23/03/2014

Cristine really likes earrings and when I travel, I will often pick up a pair for her if they are unique and not too expensive.  On one of my trips somewhere in the vicinity of Lake Erie, I saw a pair made from glass that had been worn smooth by the action of the sand and waves. /  About a month ago we went for a long snowshoe walk in the woods above our house.  Later that day she realized that one of the earrings was missing.  It always bums her out to lose one.  I am usually optimistic about finding lost jewelry; it seems to be a Krieghoff family thing that has come down through the generations.  My mom definitely had it and I got it from her.   Late this morning I was outside just off the deck taking a leak and I looked down and saw this.

With all the freezing and thawing, it was stuck pretty well in ice, but I ran inside and grabbed a butter knife and dug it out.  The non-silver metal loop is a bit rusty, but it will clean up nicely.
