The Ring of the Glimmerducks

Lake LaVerne at Iowa State University, with the Memorial Union looming in the background. If you follow the south shore west toward Friley Hall to the swan nesting area, a good metal detector may turn up my Josten's class ring (1969) in the muck underwater, just offshore. It's got an emerald cabochon and an old-fashioned heft that may be worth about $1000 at today's gold prices. I threw it to the glimmerducks back in 1970 — not bad for a mad black fit of unemployed hippie despair. Ah, the sturm. Ah, the drang. Ah, the wunderjar, possibly mayonnaise.
