Keys lost in November: Found!

In November my main set of keys disappeared somewhere here at home. I wrote about it back then and got many good suggestions about finding them. We searched high, low and sideways, but no luck. Yesterday, after a wet and even snowy winter, Anne was out on the far side of the garage and there they were. They are not even too rusty and the chip to lock/unlock my car still works. I was very surprised when she handed them to me yesterday. Lost keys seem to be a big subject on myLot. It is strange how often that cam happen.

I hope you did not replace the locks in the meantime. We only thought to have lost a set of key once, in reality my husband had forgot the set in the inside pocket of one of his coats.

Since we were sure we had them at home the night before they disappeared, we did not replace anything.

@JamesHxstatic This was a good idea, so now you have your keys back and you can use them.

Hooray!!! The keys were found! I found my husband's keys on our patio when the snow melted. Such a good feeling to finally find those keys that are so easy to lose. Also followed Molly's rabies tag in the driveway when the snow melted last year.

It was such a surprise since we thought they had probably gotten into the trash. Glad to hear that yours turned up too.

The greatest problem with losing keys for several months is that in many cases you may have replaced the locks for security before the keys are discovered. This would be a very frustrating situation.

I am glad we did not do that since the new car key would have been over a hundred dollars. I would not be so happy about finding them.

Murphy's Law - the time that we actually stop looking for something is the time it actually shows up!

That must have been a relief. It can be worrying to think that keys can fall into the wrong hands.

That had crossed our minds, but since we knew they had been in the house the night before they "left," we were not too worried.

How did you manage in the meanwhile? I had lost a hundred dollar bill. It was the balance I brought back after my holiday abroad. I remember keeping it safely among other papers. It was my niece who found it among papers that were kept for trashing. Probably when I was sorting out papers it must have slipped there.

@JamesHxstatic I made good use of those dollars. My neighbour was going to the US. I gave her those dollars and gave a list of what I wanted (lol)

Just as a saying here, find something by chance after traveling far and wide in search of it.The keys have been playing hide and seek with you.

That is great that you got your keys back. Maybe the keys wanted a vaction and left and came back.

Yes, maybe they wanted to spend more time outdoors?

Sometimes when you lost something and trying to find it they wont turn up. And then they just turn up mocking us for all the hours and days that we were looking for them.

There are many good reasons not to miss snow. I think it belongs in the mountains.
