    Here is a few rules to help in the search for missing items.
    1)If it's leather,the dog has chewed it up.
    2)If it shines,lights up or blinks your boy has it.
    3)If it's a tool,your brother has it.
    4)If it has sentimental value,your wife has thrown it away.
    5)If you use it often,your wife has put in the attic,way in the back.
    6)If it's delicate or electronic,your daughter has left it by the pool when it started to rain.
    7)Your favorite jeans,coat,hoodie or hat are now at the GoodWill store.

    I bought a used electronic drum set about two years ago, partially for myself and partially because I hoped my son would express interest. I hid the power cord so that if he wanted to use it he would have to ask me how to turn it on. Of course, I forgot where I hid it and ended up buying a new one. I sold it recently and figured it would show up right afterward. Still haven't been able to find it.

    Yes, I have lost many things that just never turned up, and which MUST be in the house somewhere.
    The most disturbing was the loss of an electric screw driver. It is after all not a tiny item.
    It was last seen on a bathroom sink. Gone 15 years now. I've worn out two others since then.

    Yeah. I'm still looking for my marbles. Can't think where I put them.

    There is one law that applies to all lost items. It will be in the last place you look.

    Well I should hope so... if you find it why would you look in another place?

    Er ... only if found. Those little buggers that have evaded my detection for years are irrefutably, undeniably still lost, in spite of my having looked at the last place (and dozens of others), over and over and over ...

    I loose a lot of junk. That doesn't bother me as much as not knowing I lost it until I need it!

    I used to wonder why my dad had so many tape measures and hammers. Decades later I understand, after needing to buy replacements and then finding the lost ones.

    I lost my ex-wife 18 years ago. I didn't bother looking for her and fortunately I haven't found her either.

    You'll always find the thing you lost in the last place you look...or the day after you buy a replacement.

    Yeah. I can't find the first disc of my "Game of Thrones" season one Blu-ray. I've looked everywhere, and no dice.

    Was it lost or did someone decide to control your sodium intake?

    That really bites. I hope it turns up. We had loaned my daughter our copy of Centennial. She moved and couldn't find it. Two years later she found it in the hubby's under ware drawer. That was a close one....I was about to make her buy me a new one.
