ring a ding ding - found!

wow, Deej found my skull ring under the cushion in her couch after we got back from work and groceries.  I had given up ever finding it -but there it was.  I noticed I had lost it at work one morning, when? Maybe Jan 2nd Tuesday? contacted all the lost and founds, searched and searched all possible places at work and at home, again and again.  Nope. I gave up it for lost. But now, joyous we have found it again!
      I had bought the ring in Landour at the top of the hill, Prakash's at Sister's Bazaar, in October 2009, I think.  I had never seen anything like it before, and we've looked and looked, but never been able to find anything like it again.  It all relates back to my youth - see, I belonged to a Skull Gang at Woodstock School (India) when I was a high school freshman (1954?), and we used to run around the dark corridors of Parker Hall and hold meetings, planning, while basketball games were being played in the evenings nearby up the covered passage way on the basket ball court.  I cracked my head (skull!) falling down and hitting my head on the concrete steps, as I missed a step while turning around to wave bye to Bruce S. and other gang members. Luckily we found Dr. Bethel Flemming up at the game and she took me down to the Quad and then up the 3 flights to open up the school dispensary and give me 7 stitches.
The skull ring
         Did that hard knock on my head - the back upper left side (above the speech center of the brain) cause an internal scar which flared up years later when I was in my late 20s and contribute to my grand mal and petite mal (aphasia) epilepsy episodes, which occasionally recurred for about 10 years in the 1970s, but then disappeared? What a skull story!
