the case of the missing…

with 6 comments

My Mom always loved her belongings and kept excellent care of them.  She also tried to keep track of them, but with four children (especially me), occasionally items went missing.

Once she called me in great distress.  She had been all over her property and could not locate the second wheel from a pair of wagon wheels she knew she had.

I said she didn’t have to worry.  I had taken the wheel as a decoration for my yard.

Today, I can look out at my winter garden, and see Mom’s missing wagon wheel.
