"This has never happened before."
"Tell me again, how did you do this"?
"Um. . . I'm not sure what to do about this."
These are comments I get way too often.
The latest installment in "How in the World did that Happen?" occurred Wednesday.
I left my personal office in my house with a handful of envelopes and a check that had to go to the bank and went into the farm office, which is in my house also. I laid it all on the counter and proceeded to finish up some computer work.
As I was in a hurry to leave, I grabbed a new stack of envelopes that I just produced and the stack from my office and headed out the door. I piled everything on the kitchen counter and went to find my shoes.
When I came back I picked up the pile and sorted through it looking for the check to place on top since it was my first stop. No check. I retraced my steps back in the farm office, back in my personal office, back in my bedroom - where I never had the check. I looked high, low and in between. I knew I had it in the farm office. How in the heck can I loose a check in 10 feet?
After a 15 minute search I had to leave. I wrote another check and took off.
I called Farmer and asked him to keep his eyes out for the check that was MIA.
This is where Farmer found it.
It must have floated off the pile as I rushed out the door and parachuted into the wood base board. I have no idea how he saw this considering he can't find his glasses when he's wearing them.
