bRING it on! Let's Ponder

 photo image13_zps64a48e1e.png

Time to Ponder yet again.  You know the drill... I post a prompt that has multiple meanings and we get see what you write! Add you post to the linky and wait for the magic!!
Today's word is RING  (you can always grab the prompt early by visiting the Pondering Page

I think I came up with this prompt when my son was shopping for a ring for his fiancee --- actually she was doing the shopping! Ironically I took a picture from the wedding of all three of my kids and their spouses hands in a circle showing their rings..but as I write this post I do not have access to the picture. :(

But as I sit at my desk writing, I want to talk about a different type of ring - you know the type - the circle of friends from work that do not let you inside the ring, or even on the edge.  I started a new job a little over 2 months ago and I still feel like I'm sitting outside of the ring (not even looking in!) I find that I try to be friendly, but after a while you sort of think to yourself, "What's the point?" Perhaps this is not as good a fit as I originally thought - not that it means I am giving up - I am just keeping my options open at the moment.

And yet another ring that comes to mind is the swim ring you throw around a child when they are in the pool. You know the kind - the ones with bright patterns and shapes!
and then of course the ones that go around their arms so they think they are swimming!

And then my Favorite Ring - the sounds that go 'round and 'round in your head:

Happy Pondering


  1. Those swim rings are lovely. There are so many variety of shapes.

    I like thinking about words that have more than one meanings.

    1. Thank you Romi, and I always enjoy your responses!

  2. Wonderful post as usual. I have a picture of my hand at my wedding. Looking at my hand now is not as good.

    1. LOL.... yes our hands certainly do give away our age!

  3. My girls constantly wear those swim rings around their necks in the house. I really don't get it. LOL
    And my youngest uses the arm bands because I find it a bit challenging to watch all 3 at once at the beach by myself.

    Sometimes it is not always a bad thing to have work people be too close of friends. I know someone who is having trouble right now because her work friends knew too much about her personal life, and now they are using it against her. Bad scene.

    LOVE that Johnny Cash song!

    1. I learned a long time ago to keep personal and business separate. sort of like you check your personal life at the door when you walk into work and pick it back up on your way home!

  4. Good one, Brenda. Bill is home and I am getting ready to go out trucking with him. June will be hit or miss. I hope to be back with a pondering tomorrow.

  5. sounds like a great meme - adding it to the week's meme list =)
