No Rest For The Weary
I'm sure some of our neighbors had a holiday today for Columbus Day but I think they were awakened before daylight. When John got up this morning he couldn't find his cell phone. It didn't take long for him to alert me so there goes my relaxing cup of coffee. I donned my housecoat, opened my garage and backed my truck out to search since we had gone to church in it yesterday. No phone. We had already looked everywhere in the house that we could think of. He is telling me over and over to call his phone from my phone which I had already done several time with no results. Actually he wasn't telling me he was yelling with me trying to calm him down. Saying relax and think where all we went yesterday. He mostly slept in his bed all day. I got a flash light to search the back yard where he feeds his three cats. He could have lost it out of his pocket while bending over putting feed in their pan. This probably alerted at least four more neighbors. No phone. I unlocked his truck and searched it even though I didn't remember us using it. No phone. I came back inside with him and his voice of panic behind me. I went into his room and to his bed one more time, picked up the heavy comforter and threw it to the side. There was the phone on the bed. He was so glad to see it I thought he was going to kiss my feet. How can we get so involved with one phone when we grew up without one?
