Lost and Found

Postby Solina Dave » Mon Sep 28, 2015 1:22 pm



First of all, I'd like to say that by the time you read this, there will be some who will say, "There, I told you this Solina Dave guy was a nut!!!
Have you ever lost anything of significant personal value, finally resigned yourself to the fact that it was gone forever, and then later found it? Perhaps a special photograph, or a special gift from someone, or a record of a significant achievement made by you, and acknowledged by others, etc. etc.? I'm sure that a lot of you have gone through this.
This is where it gets a little bit silly, maybe! A month after I bought my new '78 Wing, I rode down to Florida. While there, I spent a day at Disney World. During that day, my eye caught sight of a Mickey Mouse key fob, which I purchased for a paltry sum, and attached to it, my Gold Wing's keys. That combination sat in plain view in my ignition switch for the next 38 years of my motorcycle riding life. You know all about a motorcycling riding life.
A week ago they were missing. I had a spare set of keys, but they didn't have the Mickey Mouse key fob. I'd looked at that Mickey Mouse key fob through thick and thin for all those years. I'd turn off the engine, pocket the keys, and later take the keys out of my pocket, and unlock a world of great times. I was frantic to find them and somewhat lost until they were found. I retraced my steps and searched everywhere. No luck! Somebody said that maybe they fell down between the seat and the console of my car. I checked that carefully with a flashlight. Nothing! I went through the whole routine again a couple of days later. Nothing! I finally said, "it's gone, time to move on", but I was not a happy camper.
Yesterday, that same person just happened to comment, "so, they weren't down between the seat and the console eh?" This morning those words were on my mind, and so I thought I'd give it one more look, but this was going to be it. I shone the flashlight down into the darkness, and there, tucked under a piece of carpet that had gotten rolled back, was about half 'n' inch of the tip of a key sticking out as if saying, "help me!".......... This is a very, very good day!!

Pretty corny I know..........Dave.........................PS..Got any stories?

I have more than I want to admit in public. But then again, ask my wife, I'm sure she would love to tell on me. :D

Once while getting ready to go on vacation, my wife and I put the keys to the car where we would not forget them. Long story short, we moved out of that house, and never found the keys. That was a lot of years ago but still get a chuckle out of that one. Memory is one of the first things to go :D :D :D .

Hey Dave,
There is no time on my clock that corresponds to the time that your message arrived, 0422 am. After walking my dogs on a long walk, (over an hour), I thought it was time to start clearing the information from this site. As I am retired, I can put off anything till tomorrow, cause if I do it all today, what will there be left for tomorrow?

I had a user who wished to post this anonymously ask me to post it for them:

Ok you ask for it.
Being born in the early 60s, and blowing my money up until the late 90s on anything that seemed fun at the time, living like there's no tomorrow, and destroying my reputation and credit along the way, I not only blew my chances, but accepted that fact, that I would never own a home.
Then I became a Christian. I started attending church, gave up bad habits, paying my tithes, etc. Then God rich in mercy, helped me to achieve what only 1 percent of Americans achieve in their lifetime, not only once, but 3 times, not by a law suit, not by a lottery ticket, not by a inheritance, but by hard work and patience, and that's to pay in full for 3 pieces of realestate in the last 14 years, and maybe even a retirement idea.

My wife lost her keys...tore up the house looking for them.

Finally gave up and gave her my extra set, knowing that they would "turn up eventually."

The next day, I was mowing the lawn. In the middle of the yard (we have a big yard) I saw what I thought

was another pile left by my dog, Daisy. (Half black lab, half Mastiff...big dog...big pile.) I stopped to pick it up first, before

mowing over it, but noticed it had a car opener in it. Not a dog pile, but my wife's keys.

She has no idea how they got where they were found. She thinks she left them outside on the porch and a crow picked them up.

I think shes' losing it.... :o :lol:

That is very interesting, but what I find interesting also, is that she was quite specific that, "a crow picked them up".
