i finally caught up with the fellow who runs the league that meets at the field where i lost my ring. i've been trying to get him since late october to see the ring he found, just on the chance that it could be mine. it wasn't. but he insisted that i keep it. needless to say, that left me rather dumbfounded. i think it shows a complete lack of respect minimally for the people that pay to play in his league. guess i'll call the rec department to see if they can do anything with it.
