Thanks for your good wishes, Jinx, Dana, and Lookout - I appreciate it. I'm so glad it wasn't worse. All the animals are ok (but yes, we had a major puddle in the foyer from our elderly chocolate lab - your mental images were probably right on, lookout!) and my daughter has assured me that next time (!) she will get outside, then call 911, then call me. I guess we never know what we'll do in an emergency until it happens; she did ok.

And hopefully we'll have heat sometime today! I don't mind tending the two fireplaces, but talk about high-maintenance. They need tending every fifteen minutes or so.

Zengum, thanks for posting the photo - it's interesting to see where people live. I'd also prefer trees to endless buildings (we have a great view over a rural valley from our place ... I love it even if the teenagers find it boring). Sorry that you're going to have noise and dust right outside. Bleh.

It's really just a hunk of metal, right? I was thinking about getting mine tattooed on as I hardly ever wear it.

Have you tried looking in between all the blankets on your bed? I lost my engagement ring that way once.

Have you checked under the bed? You could always look in your golf bag, assuming you have one. My husband has lost two, not one but two, wedding bands and I found both in his golf bag.

If you found them both...

Why did he have two?

We replaced the first one after not finding it for ages ... got a new one all engraved and everything, gave it to him for Christmas ... and the next summer when he lost the new one, I found both in his golf bag.

Jim lost his first one while kayaking, so we both got replacements that we like much better.

Beest is not innocent in the ring-losing department either. Any luck, SD?

Z - it looks like that buidling is in decent condition, could they not renovate it? Unless, of course, whatever they are going to put back in it's place wouldn't work.

I have not found it, and will not find it so long as I'm at work.

(I expect to be home for about 15 minutes before going out for the evening, so tonight doesn't look good either.)

Normally my watch & my ring stay together. Last night I did not have my watch on because I was in my concert tux and the cuffs on the shirt are too tight for the watch. I hung the suit up, then about 15 minutes later I realized I had left the watch in the coat pocket, so I went to get it out and left it on my dresser. I have no recollection at all of taking the ring off.

I assume you've already checked the tux pants pocket?
