1966 Hollywood High School Ring

While rummaging through some family heirlooms I came across this Hollywood High School class of 1966 ring. As I recall my Mom found it in a parking lot in the Valley many years ago. I came across it again while going through her jewelry after she died. I put it in a fire safe with the rest of the important family jewelry and forgot about it. It resurfaced today while I was looking for something else.

Now that we have this blog I thought I would share the mystery of the Hollywood High School ring and see if it might be reunited with it's original owner. The ring is very small, it only slides up to the knuckle on my pinky finger. The sexist conclusion is it was a girls ring. The inside of the ring is engraved with three initials which shall remain secret for identification purposes. Understandably this is a real long shot but crazier things have happened. If anyone has a clue as to the possible owner please e-mail me at this blog.

Wow! You found my ring! Yes, it is a woman's ring. It's been a long time since I was "in-the-closet" and I haven't worn women's clothing in several weeks, but I really miss that ring. Thanks for finding it. If/when I ever see you, I'm going to give you a great big kiss after you've given me my ring back.

I'm all a flutter just thinking about you being reunited with your ring. After seeing that picture of you in New York with your friend I may just rely on the US Post Office to deliver it. They deal with wind rain and dogs, I am sure a middle age drag queen who wants a kiss would be no problem.

Affectionately back at ya

Oops. I forgot that I sent you that picture.

Okay OKAY! Keep the ring. Just, please, don't post that photograph.

I would never post the picture, we have family standards here. I'll send you some moth balls for that closet, now please get back in.

Disclaimer: No Postmen, or women were ever in danger. This exchange was for entertainment purposes only. We have helped Bob to reclaim his bearings and it is now safe for him to roam about this blog again. Happy trails...

it may have been my Mom's. Are the initials LMA?

Ashley, sorry for the slow response. My e-mail notification for comments got messed up. I will pull out the ring and check the initials. I forget them off the top of my head. Give me a day or so.

Ashley,I checked the initial on the ring and it is not your Mom's initials. What year did your mom graduate?
