Lost. And Found!

Remember that trip yesterday, that included stopping at Spooky's up the Gorge?

Today I discovered that my (beloved) blue denim Rocawear vest (one of two I own and wear all year round -- almost daily) had been left behind. Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I are out the door to my eye appointment, so she phones sister Sue suzy_qp to get us the number so we can call them. Sue does more than that, she gets the number and calls and talks to the manager Rebecca, who says they don't have it in Lost & Found. She gives me the number and I call again, deciding to tell her exactly where we we sitting and so on -- and leave my contact info.

They don't have it, but she takes my name and cell number.

Marilyn reminds me it could be worse. My wallet wasn't in it (often is), my cellphone wasn't in it (often is), my iPod wasn't it (at first I thought it was) -- in fact, only a couple of things were in it.

I'm now convinced somebody found it and couldn't wait to keep it. I've tons of compliments on both vests over the years -- more than for any other piece of clothing I've ever owned, frankly.

This was all this morning. It's now after 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon. Guess who just got a call on her cell?

The other manager came in and it turns out they did find it! So now we're on our way there (long ride, but whatever) to get my vest.

I know it's silly, but I'm really really HAPPY about this! Damn, but I LOVE that vest!
