    Shopper anonymously buys Marine's engagement ring

    04:26 PM CST on Friday, December 23, 2005
    Associated Press



    TYLER -- A Marine who's getting married to a Texan won't have to pay for the $3,000 engagement ring after all.

    Another shopper picked up the tab for the one-carat diamond ring.

    The woman who paid for the ring wants to remain anonymous.

    Marine James Lynaugh, who has family in Huntsville, was shopping yesterday at a Helzberg Diamonds store in Tyler.

    Helzberg spokeswoman Stacey McBride says Lynaugh's fiancee is from nearby Athens.

    McBride says the other shopper had visited with Lynaugh and mentioned her family's connection to the military.

    Lynaugh opened a Helzberg credit account to buy the ring, then left with it.

    The other shopper paid for her items, then asked if Lynaugh's charge could be reversed.

    McBride says the woman never asked in advance how much the ring cost -- she just took out her checkbook and paid for it.

    The company later contacted Lynaugh with the good news.


    Just thought I would post this. I would love to be able to personally thank this woman for what she has done for this young Marine.
    Merry Xmas to all of you.

    Here's another great one:

    Dec. 9 Manchester (NH) Monarchs game: Ladies' Night. A local jeweler passes out envelopes to the first 1,000 women entering. 999 contain a cubic zirconium, and one contains a $2,500 diamond. After the game, no one comes forward as the recipient of the diamon, and the jeweler places ads in the local paper urging women not to discard their envelopes until they are checked.

    A Manchester woman's son asks his mom, "Did you throw yours out?" She says yes, she knew she wouldn't be the winner. Son goes through trash, finds envelope, goes to jeweler: It's the diamond all right.

    What does mom do?

    Gives it to the Marines Toys For Tots program.

    That's America for ya.

    Back when I had a few bucks, I was at an IHOP, some local NGs came in for breakfast. I asked the manager if I could pick up the tab. He told me "the old guy in the black hat" beat me to it. I now officially take back half the things I've ever said about Caddillac drivers.
