Swede finds wedding ring after 16 years
Stockholm: A Swedish woman who lost her wedding ring 16 years ago was flabbergasted when she found it again,around a carrot growing in her garden,Dagens Nyheter daily reported Saturday. Lena Paahlsson said she had taken off the white gold ring before a Christmas baking session with her daughters in 1995,but it disappeared from the kitchen counter where she placed it. After looking everywhere,Paahlsson and her family,who live on a farm,had given up. That was until October this year,when she was picking the last carrots in her garden and suddenly found one with her ring around it. The family thinks the ring must have fallen into the sink and been mixed with potato peels that were composted or fed to the sheep,since all the soil in the garden comes from composted vegetables and sheep dung. The ring no longer fits Paahlsson,but she said will have it enlarged.
