    Lost and never found. ?

    Have you ever misplaced something and have never found it. Last thing I misplaced was a set of car keys abt ten years ago. They never showed up, now I ordered a remora holster and tried the pistol in it (a Glock 19.) Now that holster has disappeared. I have gone through the house 3 times to no avail. Have any of you ever had things like this happen?

    Somewhere, around this house, I know I must have about 3,000 inflating needles for basketballs.

    Lost my new sunglasses earlier this year. Bought them in April, getting ready for the summer - and *poof*, a day later they were gone. Looked everywhere, couldn't find them, they just dissapeared.

    Just yesterday, i found them. Laying on the sideboard behind a glass bowl (where i usually drop my keys when coming home)...

    Had a pair of glasses disappear one day. Couldn't find it. Looked in the car, under the seats (front and rear), at home in all the likely spots. Nada. Then, one day 6yrs later, a bit of rattling around underneath the passenger seat of the car led me to the long-lost glasses. For whatever reason, when those puppies first took to hiding underneath the passenger seat, they apparently decided to bounce up into the underworkings of the seat. Willful set of glasses, those. Stepped on 'em the other day, by accident. Was meant to be, I'd say.

    I'm thinking the holster and car keys eloped.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    They mutate into wire coat hangers, like socks do.

    I lost a Nalgene water bottle at my school once. I was pretty bummed because the bottle had gotten me through three years of working the ropes course at my summer camp. One day a semester or two later, I was walking down a hallway and something caught my eye. Turned around and looked into an empty classroom and my half-full bottle was sitting on the prof desk. Someone had taken it and been using it for months without bothering to take off my stickers or carabiner. It was a pretty emotional reunion. I still have it.

    We have a clepto cat. We have stuff "disappear" regularly. We've even seen him running with items in his mouth and have never been able to find his hiding spot(s). It's been going on for 7 years.
