Back by Popular Demand

Okay, so it is more like two people inquired recently about me updating my blog. How big must a populace be before considered popular demand? I say more than one, so here it goes.

I've been rather housebound since my surgery in April, so it is hard to report on stupid things people do as they age when I am not doing much of anything. Having said that, I can report on dumb things hubby does which leaves a full range of stupid stuff open for scrutiny. Why just this morning, I was informed that the most highly sanctified of all objects was lost and no where to be found. I duly double checked all the usual hidey holes of ill repute only to come up empty handed. Not under the couch, not in the drawers, not under the cushions of the furniture, moved coffee table and not under there. Looked in bathroom, bedroom, basement, refrigerator and even outside on the deck. Nada. Just when I stopped looking, I nonchalantly open the oven door, and there staring me squarely in the eyes, it appears. The one and only, all purposeful and authority ruler of them all.....the TV remote control! I am so happy, I did not need to pre-heat the oven! He's never going to live this one down. HA!

Hi! So glad to see you had a post on my blog reader. I asked about you the last time I saw M. I hope you are doing well and am so glad you didn't preheat the oven. I would love to know how the remote got there in the first place!

I'm just trying to figure out why you put it in the oven in the first place?

No, it wasn't me! Since we need more storage in our kitchen, sometimes I store oven wear in the oven. Apparently, dh carried remote out to the kitchen and put it down on the things that are stored there before putting them back in the oven. That's the only explanation I can come up with anyway.
