    When I was a kid I wanted a Phantom skull ring.

    Ring around the collar? The toilet? A bathtub ring?

    Oh, THOSE kinds of rings... just my silver wedding band. I have a class ring someplace, and an Eagle ring my dad gave me when I made Eagle Scout. I think they’re in my wife’s jewelry box. I haven’t seen them in years.

    Well, it could be worse. We could be posting pics of the ring around the bathtub.

    Edit, jakedog beat me on the bathtub thing

    My guitar collection goes back to the 50's, so no rings.

    We ll have to check w Alanis Morriset on whether this is ironic or not, but your most hated group has an entire movie about a ring.

    I wear this sterling “worry” ring on my right “ring” finger.
    I refer to it as my wedding ring, though I am no longer married.
    I’ve been divorced a long time.
    The ring reminds me to be more thoughtful, and less angry/judgemental.
    It works!

    Sorry. I knew that wasn't what you were after, but couldn't help myself. It was pretty selfish of me.

    To your point: I always planned on wearing cool-looking extra rings if my guitar playing/singing/songwriting career ever took off. But it hasn't yet, so I spend my money on gear instead. I know I'll be star when I find the right pedal . . .



    I NEED one of these. I spend most of my time being thoughtless, angry and judgmental.
    I guess any old ring will suffice? Or does yours have special mojo?

    I suppose any ring would do.
    Some people like to spin the center part of worry rings.
    Not me, so much.
    It is a good “reminder”.
    I only have one other piece of jewelry, a St. Christopher medal my Mom gave me when I was 10.
    I’m really not too much of a jewelry guy, but I do treasure the two pieces I own
    My ring was a B‘day gift from my sister Tricia, about 10 years ago.
    I started wearing it about 3 years ago.
    So far, so good.

    Thanks.
    I've read several posts about your St. Christopher medal lately.

    I like that old Guy Clark song about The Randall Knife. And it always makes me wonder "what thing have I haunted?" That medallion has been with you a loooong time.
    Also makes me think of "Stuff That Works." :)

    This is interesting...My dad was stationed in Italy in '67 (myself being age 9) along with the rest of my family in Naples. Where was your family stationed?

    I doubt there will be much further discussion once Tom Brady shows up.

    I always wanted a skull ring...but figured I'm not cool enough to rock it.
