    Not last night, the night before, I took it off in the middle of the night and left it on my night stand.

    Kids wake up, come bounding in. Get up with them get them fed and all that. A little before lunch I got to retrieve ring and it's gone.

    I'm pretty sure Gracie nabbed it.

    I've asked her if she took it. She said yes.

    "Did you take Daddy's ring?"
    "Yes"
    "Where is it?"
    "In my purse"
    We check her "purse". Not there.She always been good about fessing up to this kind of stuff, and she's always told me where whatever she has taken is. I asked her a few more times and got different answers every time. None of which were correct.

    So i have no idea where it is. I guessing this means the chicks are going to ALL OVER me until it turns up.

    After enough of JBP's 'degloving' references on the monkey my wedding ring was tossed in a drawer (I think) 6mos ago.

    In 17 years I think the only time my ring was ever off was kayaking in cold water because I was afraid of losing it.

    Lay off the bacon.

    He should be banned, MMike too. RM is no place for people who lose their wedding rings.

    NOT disciplining you child in this situation conveys the message that its ok to steal.

    I very rarely where a ring. Usually only when Julie & I go out, and she doesn't even care if I wear it then.

    It's possible, however I think she feels there is not a big demand for an old, fat, bald dude like myself. So she's not threatened.

    Plus she knows she can't polish a turd either.

    The old wedding ring conversation is almost as bad as discussing politics. My father is law is from the school of never taking off his ring. Wife told be about some story of him being in the hospital and being forced to remove it.

    I can go a couple days without wearing my ring. My wifes parents seems to have a much bigger problem with it than she does.

    Anyway...hope your find your ring soon.

    We're so the opposite. Neither of us wear our ring when we're out riding our doing yardwork, etc. I certainly don't want to loose/damage it nor do I want to chance loosing a finger. We joke about not wearing them sometimes too. We know that we're married and love each other so it's really just not necessary for us.

    I don't think I've ever seen my dad wear his wedding ring. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen it period.

    Maybe your wife stole it so she could get "uber peckerwood" inscribed on it for father's day.
    Surprise!!

    One minute after I proposed to my wife I told her I look like a total douche when I wear a ring. Now she can't say anything when I don't wear it. I actually was wearing it until I hurt my finger in a DH race and it swelled up and I almost didn't get it off.

    My wife is still pissed that my ring was in the ash tray of my truck when I traded it in. They sold it the next day before I had a chance to get it out. The new owner claims there wasn't a ring in there.

    At least you MIGHT get yours back.

    My wife knew that I was never going to wear my ring after our wedding day since I never wore a ring in my life and hated the way they felt when I tried them on.

    I got used to it after our wedding and have not taked it off other than the occasional take it off to play with it when I am bored.

    Yeah that would not be very good.

    Gracie could have put it ANYWHERE....and yes....there will be some cursory glances made in the dog poop.....

    Glad you got it back.
