    It’s one of those cuts, but I don’t know the difference between them, so your guess is probably right.
    I am not a serious person.

    I groomed all 3 of my cocker spaniels on Monday. Today I went through the box and bag of grooming tools, cleaned them all, boxed up the ones I do not use to send to a cocker rescue group. Will drop off at the post office tomorrow. Win-win, everything neatly fits in one easy to access box now.

    We are overhauling the big garden bed on the south side of our house. I dug up and gave away 5 big pots of Siberian irises.

    It is nice you found a home for your Siberian iris and did not compost them.

    They are easy to work with and very nice and fast, too.

    Here is a fuzzy pic of the ring DH got from his father. It is gaudy to me as I don't often see ordinary men wearing diamonds but it was from the 80s I think.

    To be fair, there are some in the compost bin, but I'm ready and willing to pull them out if I get sufficient demand from my Facebook offer!

    You could turn it into 3 rings for your daughter and granddaughters:

    Elsie Engraved Ring - Brilliant Earth

    You can take the size of the stone down on this visualizer to 1/2 ct or whatever they are, it looks different with the smaller stones. If you measure it in mm, you will have a better way to tell how many cts they are

    or one three stone for you

    3ct Three Stone Diamond Engagement Ring 14K White Gold (pompeii3.com)

    or a pair of earrings, etc.
