I don't know what it is about me, but everytime somebody looses something, they think I know where it is or can find it. Last night at 12 o'clock midnight, my dear son came into my room and said he couldn't find his glasses. He had been looking for over an hour. He had been reading in bed, so they couldn't be far. He had all the covers off his bed and I shook them all again and looked under his pillows and behind and under the bed. I was about to give up myself when I thought to raise up the mattress and the box springs. Well, at first I didn't see anything, and then I saw them. They were lodged between the board and the side of the bed. You know the railings that you lay across for the box springs to rest on. Right at the end of the board is where I found them. It took me forever to go back to sleep. And then here is the rest of the story..... Today , Bill, my DH drove the lawn mower up into the back yard to get some apples. I thought he had been gone a long time and I started out the back door to go find him. He met me at the back porch and said he had lost his glasses. I thought to myself, here we go again. He was sitting on the mower underneath the tree and had a limb pulled down and the limb let go and grabbed his glasses off his face. He had been looking for an hour to no avail. Well, I started looking and about the time I was going to give up, I saw them in the leaves under the lawn mower. They were right between the wheels. Its a thousand wonders he didn't run over them. I hope nobody else looses anything today. I'm really tired of looking!!!!

Oh Clara.... Get them both cords for their glasses. Tell them like it or not, they need to wear the cords so they don't lose them as you are not going to always be able to find them. =)

Clara, I can't find your e-mail address again, sorry to "comment" here... but would you be willing to help me with a couple of crochet patterns? I have an afghan that belongs to a client of mine with no pattern anymore.. she's 80+, if I could e-mail you a photo could you see if you might recognize it? Or perhaps you might recommend somewhere to find a pattern? Thanks in Advance!!!

I guess they couldn't see to find them without their glasses on! (smiling a big mischievious smile)

(Sorry, but it was just begging to be said...lol)

Your clever mind was able to deduct where they might have possibly gone to and that is exactly why they came to you...because you are so smart. Give yourself a hug, they were calling you blessed!

I am sitting here just laughing my fool head off...cause my husband is always asking me have I seen such and such.

The other side of the coin is, I can be sitting sewing and not have got up or moved, and will lose my scissors or spool of thread or something...and I know it is right there.
