"Show and Tell Friday"
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!" Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, a new antique find, an old love letter. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!
If you would like to join in, all you have to do is post your "Show and Tell" on your blog, copy the post link, come over here and add it to Mr. Linky.
Here is my "Show and Tell...."
It was the summer of 1994. Phillip and I were newlyweds and living in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It was the perfect day for going out to the lake, and Phillip also thought it was the perfect day for teaching me how to drive his stick shift car. Oh, the mistakes new husbands make! ;0) The driving lesson took place on an old dirt road and my younger brother tagged along for the show. Let's just say I didn't learn how to drive stick shift that day but I did make a new record--stalling a car 168 times in 15 minutes! ;0) That was the end of that lesson. Forever!
I thought the day was ruined until my brother decided to go for a swim. On one of his dives to the bottom of the lake he found something shiny. I love jewelry so I was very excited to see this Black Hills Gold and diamond ring.
Being a young teenager, he didn't have any need for the ring so he gave it to me! On one condition though...when he got a serious girlfriend, I would have to give it back to him. I agreed.
The years have passed and the ring has been tucked away in my jewelry box. I wonder if my brother even remembers our trip to the lake! He will have been married for 2 years this May. Sounds like a serious girlfriend to me!
The time has come for me to hold up my end of the deal, don't you think?
