    Sigh... :sigh:

    Several days ago as I left a meeting at a hotel; I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down.

    I was looking for my keys. They were not in my pockets. A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing.

    Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car. Frantically, I headed for the parking lot.

    My wife has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition.

    My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them.

    Her theory is that the car will be stolen. As I burst through the door, I came to a terrifying conclusion.

    Her theory was right. The parking lot was empty.

    I immediately called the police. I gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen.

    Then I made the most difficult call of all, "Honey," I stammered; I always call her "honey" in times like these.

    "I left my keys in the car, and it has been stolen."

    There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard her voice.

    "Idiot", she barked, "I dropped you off!

    Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, "Well, come and get me."

    She retorted, "I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I haven't stolen your car."

    Yep! It's "the Golden Years"....aren’t they fun!!

    Tom :)macwave:... ain't the truth? Ain't it the truth!)

    It's usually my reading glasses for me Dan. Tear the house apart looking for them only to find them propped up on the top of my head.

    Don't I know it Terry. There's days anymore when I wonder if I'm not there already. :sigh:

    Tom :)macwave:... what? When? Where? What'd I miss?)

    Gentlemen, gentlemen. Please.

    Every single workday I unlock my office door. EVERY SINGLE WORK DAY, I then enter my office set down my "stuff," and then proceed to search for my keys so I can open my mail box. EVERY single work day, without fail.
