Here we have a mystery fork bender.Somebody keeps bending them.
My house is just weird! So I've decided how I get them is how they will get them back.Just like the laundry.If you're too lazy to unroll a sock.A sock ball is what you'll get back. Hey, new game!

Ah well, need to pack going to S.F.If need be we'll stay for the weekend.
Hubby isn't doing well.

See you guys when I get back.
Don't be good.I'd be disappointed in ya's.

I have some of those, actually, for when we BBQ. This may well become a new rule for work lunches. :)

I just went out and bought new flatware (there was a good sale going on at Bowring). This set, though, will be kept in the chest, and will not be for everyday use.

Sounds like something the male gender would indulge in for simple minded amusement. I have met a few of them when waitressing. Same college kids doing the dastardly deed. We kept the folks and when they came in the next time, like you, they got their forks back with their food. Apology and a nice tip followed.

I'd be unhappy about that.

What are you doing?

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. After spending last week setting up for the garage sale, I spent parts of this week boxing up the leftovers. Everything is in boxes, all lined up around parts of the perimeter of the room, just waiting for Salvation Army to pick it up. The best part is that both of our cars are all tucked into the garage again, safe and sound and staying dry. I swear I can see their grills smiling...

Ahh yes, the missing flatware! I bought a very good quality stainless steel service for 8 more than twenty years ago, and thru the years, just got used to having to wash the remaining pieces more often. It's strange that I still had 8 table knives.
The Onieda pattern had been discontinued and I didn't even remember the name of it. SousChef, the guy who can track down anything I want, found the forks and spoons for sale on Ebay. He ordered 8 more of the forks and spoons, and now we don't run out before the dishwasher is full.

Kay, glad you got your replacement pieces. SousChef probably got a better deal than on Replacements, Ltd. - they're kind of spendy - but good to know it's there in a bind.

CG, glad you're relaxing! Munky, have a great weekend in SF.

I'm not doing a thing - had a leisurely 2 hour brunch out with a good friend today, and came home to ants on the kitchen counter. UGH. Just sprayed, so now I need to clean up their little carcasses. Looks like they were after the one fork and dinner dish from last night.

It's good to be home.
The trip was rough on my husband.I'm glad he's decided to sleep in today.

Our dogs we bad while we were gone.Those two got busted.BIG TIME!
Not really.The look alone was enough.

My son had given them each a treat.He then walked out of the room for a few minutes.While he was gone our Golden Retriever Trub went to the treat box and stole another one. My son came back into the room and heard crunching noises.He looked to see what they were chewing on.Trub had brought it over to our dog that's blind and they were both sitting face to face sharing it.
They didn't miss me.They got away with a crime.My little criminals.

Welcome home Munky!

Your two criminals are more like a petty theft that you would look away from.
