    We had a big surprise and it really made us feel good.....except for the red face. A senior moment perhaps?

    Some of you will remember the thread where I told about our new trail camera being stolen. Well, we found it! The culprit did not take it very far at all. My wife and I were walking around through the woods mostly looking at what trees we will be cutting this winter. I had made a new trail last year and wanted to take her through it so we came that way on the way back towards the house. We reach a point where it is a bit higher ground and one of my favorite hunting spots during archery season. I had brought her on the atv not that long ago too but this time we came from the lower ground onto the higher ground and looking straight ahead.....we found our trail camera! Hot dog! To this day I do not remember moving that camera to that spot but when I got the pictures, it showed exactly when the camera was moved.....just before I found it missing from the other spot.

    So there you have it. I am not ashamed to admit when I goof and this time was a dandy for sure. :red: But sometimes things turn out good in the end and this one did.

    All is well that ends well . . . and your faith in humanity is restored . . . a bit.

    Kind of like my incident a few weeks ago when I was convinced someone had stolen my containers with a mix of Jet Fuel A and aviation gas . . . I was just thinking over all the bad things that would happen to the would be thief's car, ATV, sled, etc. . . . until I discovered that a well meaning Lt. had come by, saw the containers and moved them inside the training facility.

    Jake, my wife, since the time we got married has always thought I was to easy on folks. I like to help others and she thinks they take advantage. I like to have faith in people when she thinks they are nothing but jerks. No, I've lost no faith for sure and it does my heart good to know that we did not have a thief. We have good neighbors for sure.

    Dennis, I think I really like your ornery wife. We have something in common at any rate.

    Now... where's the SOB who drank up the last of my bottle of hooch? It was sitting right there on the coffee table half-full just a couple hours ago. :mad:

    I opened this thread wondering what the shocking news would be:
    "We actually heat with propane, the wood stove is just for ambiance."
    "I only have one woodpile, and I just take pictures of it from different angles."
    "I burn green wood."
    "I actually have a Blaze King."
    "I really split horizontal."

    You really had me going there.

    Well to be fair . . . it's good your wife keeps you centered . . . sometimes there are bad people out there and some people go through their entire life leeching off others. Not everyone is good as you said in the original post.

    Glad you found it. Bet that won't happen again!

    I'm certainly not a senior but I have countless "episodes" where I found I relocated something which I believe someone moved on me only to find it right where I left it (after the wife points it out).

    If it were a senior moment, you wouldn't remember to tell us that you forgot where you put it!

    Pen, it sort of reminds me of when the kids left home. I had constantly been after them to please put the tools away after using them. Danged kids kept doing it even after they left home.....

    I kind of feel bad for throwing out those no-good-for-nothing names at no one...

    Ah well, all is good, I feel better now. I'm glad you found it.

    Most typically, I seem to find the item I was sure I had lost pretty much immediately after I get back home from the store, having gone out and bought a replacement. %-P

    Had a a Zippo lighter engraved when I was overseas. After I came home I lived in a singles apartment party complex. Lighter came up missing. I actually accused a couple of people. The next summer came around and I put on the swim trunks and felt something heavy in the pocket. :red:

    Oh it will. You know you are in trouble when you are the one elected to hide the Easter eggs and the last to find them.

    Every phone call from my 58 year old sister is filled with complaints that my 86 year old mother thinks people are stealing her stuff and her repeating what she just told her five minutes before. I just tell her she ain't gonna believe what happens to her self three or four years from now.

    It takes my wife and I a couple of days to finish a conversation.

    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter more and more.
    I walk into a room and stop and think what am I here after?

    I put stuff where I can find it all the time. I'd get all pissed off if I can't find it and ask where it is. Sometimes it gets 'put away', but it's usually where I left it. Now I just ask if anybody has seen it.

    My new puppy is disposed towards mischief, and now when I am looking for my stuff, I have somebody to blame. My wife is relieved by the arrival of the puppy, because before, it was her fault. I hesitate to think what goes through her mind when that happens, but the dog clearly sulks.

    I still try to blame the kids but the trouble is, one lives about 650 miles from us and the other about 750 miles. Danged kids....
