I've checked my pockets, everything. I assume it'll show up one day after I've bought a new one.

    The worst I ever did was when I was on the cell phone with someone, racing around my house trying to leave for an appointment and when they asked, "What's going on there?" because I was all frantic, I said, "I'm trying to find my phone because I gotta leave!!!" They said, "Uhmmmm, you're talking to me on it....."

    Well, that's embarrassing......

    That just happened to me this morning!

    I had the phone in my hand, thought about something, reached for my phone with the other hand and panicked - Oh no! Where's my phone! Right there in my other hand.

    FOUND IT!!! Somehow I guess I dropped it (it's black plastic) and it hit the laminate flooring WITHOUT MAKING A SOUND, and slid under the back leg of the guitar stand. I just lifted the Avalon off the stand and there it was. Hoooo boy......

    Here something vaguely related.

    I have been trying to find an issue in a miniature swiss tape recorder - no schematics unfortunataely - so it will take time - anyhoo - I have a set of presicion screwdriwer tips + handle - suddenly one bit was missing from table - nowhere to be found - not on the floor - - - -finally - I have a battery-run worklight with magnets on it's back- of course that and the bit had found each other . . .

    So I am stil working to find what's wrong with that little tape recorder untill I can report further. . .
    First good guitar - GUILD Duane Eddy 400 - I was 3rd owner - still regret letting it go 25 years ago - used to have Artist Award and Starfire - no regrets here.
    Present guitars - all bought new - F50R 1975 - F512 1977 - F212CSB 1979 - OM-240CE 2018 - Schecter Startocaster
    Bought secondhand - B30SB fretless - RED Songbird - White Songbird - S-60D - D-125 - Gibson 3/4-size acoustic 1957 - Carmelo Gonzales nylon string - old Levin Lute

    I was thinking the Borrowers, but they never give anything back.

    About 7 years ago we went out to dinner and came home like normal. I actually (for a change) hung up my pants in the closet. Next day I started a search for my wallet. Nowhere!! I crawled around on the floor, inside the closet, my truck, the parking lot at the restaurant, and the manager even checked the security video to make sure I didn't leave it at the bar. Nothing! So I started replacing things. Drivers License, all new cards, Clark County Health Dept. Card and TAM Card (for work to serve food and liquor), everything. Everything got replaced and I even got a new wallet. So two weeks later, I'm talking on the phone staring at how filthy the carpeting is and knowing it was time to get it cleaned, when I found it. Can you see where it is??
