— One ring-a-dingy, two ring-a-dingy … This is how a skit on the old TV variety show, “Laugh In”, usually started. It was Lily Tomlin acting the part of a switchboard operator named Ernestine. She was so funny as she made jokes as she made calls and answered calls while on her job.

— Does anyone remember the old TV ad for using Whisk laundry soap? It was pretty funny, but annoying when they’d say in a sing song voice ‘ring around the collar, ring around the collar’.

— I have a lot of rings to wear, but these days I don’t wear any. Mostly my rings are fun and cute novelty kind of animals, like leopard faces, turtles, peace signs, skulls, butterflies and bats. I don’t have any that are expensive unless maybe my turquoise rings are.

— I had one ring with a real diamond one time. It was my engagement ring. It got lost or stolen a long time ago.

— My kids used to like those candy ‘ring pops’. They still have them at the candy counter I believe. It’s a plastic ring to wear, but the ‘jewel’ on top was a giant, diamond shaped lollipop.

— Telephone rings, bathtub rings, bells ringing …

— One time I saw a ring around the moon and it was so pretty. I didn’t get a picture of it. I did get a picture of a ring around the sun, though. A sun halo!

A ring around the sun – a sun halo taken around noon one day
