Today at work, a co-worker lost her one of her earrings. Just the one. Apparently, this was her favorite earrings because we stopped what we were doing, got out flashlights and down on our hands and knees and searched. She not only moved furniture looking for this earring, she dismantled items searching for it. It had disappeared. A few hours later, I asked if she had found her earring yet. She said, "No.... Oh My God!" She suddenly saw it, picked it up and started crying!

I tried not to laugh. Crying over an earring? I, however, have to admit, I understand. I lost my favorite sweater hand made by my sister years ago. A year and a half later, someone found it and returned it to me. I sobbed for hours! I loved that sweater. I eventually wore it to threadbare. I finally, reluctantly parted with it after moths had eaten half of it. I still remember how it felt to have it back.

What is your favorite lost and found story?

A little blue canvas pack sack. The main pocket would hold 3 loaves of bread.
One bottle of wine in each side pocket. Lost for a decade.
I tore my workshop apart, looking for that gem.
It was my "bird bag" for a day out for grouse.

It had fallen behind the deep freezer, next to the wall.
Found it when I sold the big freezer some 25 years ago.
Now it perches out in the open where I see it every day.
Always loaded for a day trip. It will not wear out in my lifetime.

1. I found a flint spear point in the sand at my Gramma's lake cottage.

it went missing, and I found it in a box, years later.

Not a TREASURED keepsake, but the only flint spear point I ever found.

2. Playing cowboys, using my best friend Tommy's Red Ryder BB gun.
Slid it into a gap in the tar paper, where the garage roof met the abandoned hen house we used as a play house.
Went off to play something else, forgot all about it.

Five to seven years later, tearing down the hen house to make a 2nd garage, there it was, in very good condition, having been protected by the roofing material. THEN I remembered having slid it in there!
Tommy was glad to have it back.

Good topic Mander. I don’t believe I have lost an inanimate object maybe a gal pal or two along my way in life but when I think about it, it was probably for the best. Although there was one ???nah better not go there.

I had trained my last dog to air scent for finding deer. He would find anything really, just give him a sniff of an object then hide it and he’d find it. One day we were in the park and a family were walking a over looking for something, turned out their toddler had kicked off one of her new shoes - the park is huge and they’d spent ages looking. I asked them if I could borrow th either shoe, which they looked at me strangely but complied. I gave it to my dog and 10 minutes later he trotted back with the missing shoe - it made my day!

Oh, what my parents would have given to have such a pup!

I cost my parents a King's ransom is in shoes when I was a child, and yet, I was always bare foot! To this day, I have trouble keeping track of my shoes!
