When I went out yesterday to start the car for the wife
so she could go to work, I had good intentions of
getting more chores done before calling it a day. Then I
noticed a jet rushing across the wild blue yonder and
lost my train of thought.
This morning while sitting at the kitchen table the
wife said “I couldn’t find you in your boot camp
graduation picture”. So I went and grabbed a big copy
off the office wall and handed it to her while telling
her I was in the back.
She took her time examining the picture and proclaimed
“I still can’t pick you out”. No problem I thought as I
took the picture and started to look myself. You guessed
it, I couldn’t pick myself out either!
I know I was there, I have witnesses that will say I
was there, but damn if I know where. Being a solution
seeker, I grabbed a magnifying glass so we could carefully
look at every face. You guessed it, we still didn’t find
Looking back it’s hard to believe I ever was that
young, and it was one of the few times anyone saw me with
a haircut and minus a mustache. Trying to solve this
mystery meant half the day is done while no yard work is
done. I’ll remedy that right now. Oh look, a squirrel!
