Lost and Found (soon to be lost again)

I lose hats. And mitts. And gloves. Scarves, umbrellas, books, sunglasses, grocery lists, and tupperware containers. My friend W. thinks I should wear a velcro suit so everything can be attached to it. J. has gotten into the habit of checking under chairs and tables everytime we leave a restaurant so he can rescue whatever I've forgotten. I've just resigned myself to a certain amount of attrition over time - so I try to buy my hats (and mitts, and scarves, etc., etc.) from places like Ten Thousand Villages or Raising the Roof - I figure if I have to keep replacing them, the money might as well be going to a good cause.

I lost this hat in early February - but miracle of miracles, actually found it in the GO lost and found a week later. I'm hoping to hold onto it until at least October.

Update: April 21, 2008
Well, the picture will be lost soon - I spilled some linseed oil on it, and it's slowly dissolving....
