I lost my purse and I blame.....Long

the ferns and thoughts of spring.
We were running a bunch of errands and at on stop I realized that I did not have my purse. Oh, what a sinking feeling. DH made a U turn and drove back to the last store we had been. Luckily someone had turned it in to the Lost and Found and all my "stuff" was in there. What a relief.
I went around and around in my mind how this could have happened. I thought of senior moments, weak hand grip, etc...
Then I realized that I had been into the garden center, stopped by a couple of boxes with bare root ferns, 3 to a package and I was planning in my mind how and where I would plant these little baby plants. I put them down and joined DH at the exit.
Lol, when I looked at the note placed on my purse by the store, it said it was found in the garden center at 12:15pm in the garden center.
I guess I have spring fever.
And a big thank you to the person who turned in my purse. In case they are reading this, it was the multi colored knitted, draw string purse.
A big hug and good karma to you.

I am so glad for you; first that you found it, and second, that someone was honest/kind enough to turn it in. Isn't it wonderful and strange what thoughts of Spring can do to one?

Within the last two weeks, we cancelled our credit card, b/c I've put it away so carefully--I haven't been able to find it! I'm sure that sooner or later, it will turn up, but we didn't want to take the chance that I may really have lost it!

Again, it's great that you found your purse.

I'm glad you found your purse. I'm guessing there are many things in there that would be hard to replace.

RE: I lost my purse and I blame.....Long

We all have spring fever these days but very little spring. I am glad that an honest person found your purse.

RE: I lost my purse and I blame.....Long

Oh yes - so glad a nice, honest person found your purse. It is really hard to replace some of the things we carry in our purses. Now if someone could just find the tractor key that I definitely remember heading to the house with but is not in its usual place and cannot be found anywhere! Thank goodness I keep a spare one.

Spring does many strange things to our brains.....that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

RE: I lost my purse and I blame.....Long

Ohhhh, that feeling is the worst!! I'm glad you found it and it was all there!

RE: I lost my purse and I blame.....Long

this has happened to me more than once, alas, but I am fortunate that I have always been able to recover it quickly. The only time I lost any money was when my handbag was picked in a department store. And the thief only got $12!
