It's Always The Last Place You Look

After more than two looooong weeks of getting up off the couch to turn up and down our TV (a task made even more difficult because the knob is behind a glass door which we have to keep barricaded so Harley doesn't get into it), we (I) have found the remote!!!


You're looking at the cupboard which holds our TV on top and in the cabinets is all of Harley's toys. (That would be "Ghostbusters" on the tv and look to the left...that's where the volume is. See the big silver thing in its way? Yeah.) In an act of desperation, I unloaded all the toys out of it and guess what???? It was in there! Seriously, can't begin to describe how good it feels to sit on my bu....couch and turn on and off and up and down the volume. I'm waaaaaaay too skinny for all the exercise I was getting by walking the 12 feet to the stereo.


Thanks for all of your suggestions. I really did check the fridge, the garbage (again), not the spices because I keep them up high, the heat registers, the drawers in the kitchen and bathroom. The town I live in hates the earth so I didn't have a recycle bin to check.


All is right at the Stubbs home again.

So glad...what a pain in the a** to have to watch tv that way.

When I was a kid, my dad used to make me stand next to the tv and change the channels. I hated it. That is child abuse right there.

I would rather actually exercise than have to change the channel manually.

And now I am lauging at the picture of standing next to the TV to change the channel. Did you also wear foil on your head to get better reception?

Best part..."the town we live in hates the earth". How true!

Glad you didn't keep looking once you found it.

Ours always ends up under the couch or in the side of the cushions of the chair. Glad you have it now.

And I had to laugh that our town hates the earth yet it's nicknamed "the city of tree's" Yeah.

I was fasting AND praying about this one. Faith precedes the miracle, huh? Let's hope we never have to walk this dark road again, Amber. I simply can NOT take the anguish.

See you next week, you righteous dudette!

P.S. I, too am laughing right out loud over "The town we live in hates the earth." The only reason people think I'm funny is they haven't met you.

I panic when we cannot find the remote too. I love my tv.

Moxie hid our remote too. We found it in Jefe's golf bag. Wuh??
