    Can you relate ? or Finally I replaced the old..

    Just why did I enter the kitchen at 2 in the morning..For a month I had this terrible nightmare that I couldn’t remember to whom I lent my, “The Colt .45 Automatic," Shop Manual, by Jerry Kuhnhausen,..I know it wasn’t in the kitchen, But there I stood...Finally I said to heck with it and ordered a New Expanded 10TH Edition..I’m sleeping through the night now...Funny how that works....

    I think you left it on top of my cabinet in my office. I have one and don't know where it came from. LOL.

    If you're luck is anything like mine, you'll find your old copy within 2 days.

    I can't find squat in my rude hut..

    I hide stuff then I find out I- hid it from my self, the coinhabitant in my hovel loves to move my stuff around, put a book down, a shirt, a coffee cup anything it moves from place to place- its like a poltergeist lives here.

    Sometimes I just order another book, DVD whatever then- like FM said, sure as hell I will find the one I had.

    CRS is a very bad thing.

    As dad grew older, when he couldn't find a tool he needed he bought a replacement. I'm now at that age. Like father, like son.

    That happens to me with tools, books and almost everything else. In fact, that's how I find lost gun parts...order a replacement and the old part magically appears sometime later in plain sight.

    I don't loan books out, so I know mine are in this house/shop somewhere. Sometimes it's years before I stumble across a "lost" book I've been searching for. I've learned to live with the fact that sometimes I put things in dumb places and it'll turn up again.
