It's been MIA since Monday. And I use it on an almost daily basis, so of course I already ordered a replacement. I just don't lose stuff, so it was driving me mad that it was not surfacing in another pair of pants that I had been wearing. I figured that I would find it in the Spring, when the snow melted.
Apparently the last time I used it, as I was putting it back into my rear pocket, I clipped it onto my coat instead
Another mystery solved. Lesson learned. The Pirate is always losing stuff. And of course it is right under his nose.

Funny! Shrek is always misplacing things like that. I drive him mad by handing them to him once I know what he is looking for.

NOBODY is better at losing stuff than my SO. She is a classic. Can't find her glasses and they're on her head. Can't find her keys they're in the door lock etc. If she says, "...don't bother looking in my purse, I already looked there.", that's where I look first.

I spend more of my life finding her stuff than anything else I do.

Had to jump start SO's car for the second day. She stopped in where she got the battery (less than two years ago). It's under warranty so she'll limp through today and drop it off tonight for service in the morning. Hopefully, it's jut the battery and not her electrical system.

I have been asked to give a talk at a workshop on depression, which I have dealt with on and off in my life. It will be at the end of the month and I am both excited and nervous.

So, I better dig out those notes from my public speaking classes and begin writing a speech!

+1!

Laurie, remember to look slightly over their heads if you're shy about speaking to a crowd like I am.

Papa gives many speeches and he does this too.

With love,
