I don’t want to start my day with more Trump shamefulness, so instead I’ll start it with this:

That is, until the diamond ring showed up this week – 13 years after she lost it –wrapped tightly around a misshapen carrot that had been freshly plucked from the garden.

Never give up, never surrender.
