Rings and Things

I like this blog to be a place where I can say what I want, where you find out a little bit more about me and my world.  One of the other of John & Fran Hunter’s three kids, my youngest sister Debbie, had a cool experience to pass along.  She sent it to me as an email, I thought it worthy (if you are of an age) for you to read about as well.  Enjoy!

So last night I was getting my hair done, and while I was processing (my hair, not about the fact that I was getting my hair done) my hairdresser Annette or “Hairapist as she likes to call herself, sat down to show me two rings that she has gotten from her mom.  Annette’s mom passed away from breast cancer about 10 years ago.  Annette had mentioned before that her mom use to be a Nanny for Charlton Heston and James Garner back in the day.  So during the time she was a nanny for the Heston’s, Charlton gave Annette’s mom two rings.  The first one, which is the multicolor one, is from when he was filming Ben Hur.  Not clear exactly where it was purchased, but guessing Italy since that is where the movie was filmed.  The second green looking one, was one that he purchased for her in Egypt when he was filming the Ten Commandments, Annette’s mom was with the family over in Egypt.  The ring actually flips over, so on the one side you can see the Hieroglyphics, and when you flip it over, you can see the stone is carved in the shape of a beetle.  Thought this was cool and wanted to share.
This story wouldn’t be complete without pictures.

Aw, the stories of life…
