Major panic. We just got back from vacay last night. This afternoon, DH could not find his credit cards (he calls it his "billfold" - cash and CCs wrapped in a rubber band from a broccoli). We tore the house and car apart, went thru all the luggage and laundry, nothing. Finally, he retraced his steps and found the billfold in the neighbor's driveway. He'd picked up the dog from the boarder, walked her, and it fell out of his pocket. Whew. Not really the way I'd planned to spend the day off....but it could have been worse!

I was having a heart attack just reading the start of your missive. So glad all is well.

I was having one as well! DH does not do well under pressure. I was doing my methodic Roomba thing, it has to be here somewhere. Thanks Addie!

I Roomba'd out to the mailbox, just not to the neighbor's driveway. Men. Highly overrated and too much upkeep. Give me a beagle or a cat anytime.

I am doing 2/3 of a happy dance--the Volvo passed its e-tests with flying colors, its RIV inspection, but failed its safety test--needs a tie rod. I have one ordered (about $16 from the states, $85 here). It'll take about an hour to install. The guy who did the safety and RIV inspection "walked me out."

"Really nice car."
"Yes, I know. I'm really glad my friend gave it to me."
"I'll give you 5,000 for it."
Laugh, "no."
"Six?"
"No."
"Don't blame you. Bring it back when you get the tie rod in--we can do it for you, but you can get it done elsewhere cheaper."

Did the royal wave as I drove away and was glad that he didn't pressure me about the tie rod...

PF, am shipping you DH and trading him in for another beagle. Or a cat. He is semi-housebroken.
