    I SENT THIS BUSINESS REQUEST To His Web Site. (LOL) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    *** Will Pay Up To $50,000 to Investigate & Apprehend ***

    ~ My Grievence: ALL my reading glasses are gone...Again!

    The Trouble is .. They just start leaving and within a few days or so - they've ALL left.

    After they finally all disappear , they THEN start showing up about a week or so later. (All In The Same Day). and often IN PLAIN SIGHT! How do they do that?

    * pens often Do The Same Thing. ( They're even worse).

    *Occasionally Remote controls get in on it too.

    Is this merely an internal domestic conspiracy among the participants

    OR ...

    Continuous Unlawful Entry and Theft by invisible or sneaky Little Varmints?


    Request a covert thorough investigation of ... OOPS! NEVER MIND ... (for now).
    (glasses are on my head ). Now where's my pen? ...

    Who put the remote in the laundry basket?

    {How Did They DO That}??

    What kind of investigations does your brother do? Does he use a Sherlock
    Holmes type magnifying glass? Would that be the best thing to find your
    reading glasses?

    Aren't lost glasses a pane in the neck?

    I have lost pens too although I seem to have more lost pen tops than
    I have pens.

    I read on the net that the airlines lose over 5,000,000 pieces of luggage
    a year. When they get found, after the airline has paid some token amount
    to the outraged passenger, the bags are sent to the Unclaimed Baggage
    Center in Alabama and auctioned off.

    According to the website, this is the most popular tourist attraction in

    There is a similar auction house in England. It's located in a city named
    Tooting. You can get good bargains there, but it's hard to find. The business
    doesn't advertise. Doesn't want to be accused of tooting its own horn.

    Gary Larson, The Far Side, has a cartoon that show two malicious elves in
    the middle of the night hiding car keys. One definition of a key ring is:
    a device that lets you lose all your keys at one time.

    I have to agree with the person who said, "The best way to find something,
    is to replace it."

    It is the nature of paired socks to occasionaly need some time alone.

    It is the nature of escaped horses too seek out the company of other horses, so they are easily found.

    If we could discover the nature of eye glasses and pens, then perhaps we would know where to look for them.

    Something like that. Cheers

    Your statements do seem to corrilate with observations made in my post "understanding socks"

    I think we're on to something!
