The only good part for you, is that no one else is in the house. So, while it is needed, and very important, at least you knew that it wasn't in the wrong hands. If someone had been in the house...!
Geez, you search for things like I do...everywhere! And, more than once if I'm sure that an item had been somewhere previously. I always tell myself that it's lame to look anywhere repeatedly, but I do it anyway sometimes.
I am so relieved that you found it, since it can't be replaced!
This makes me wonder, for everyone, if copying them onto a sheet of paper, and tucking it into a safe place, maybe in a trunk under something, wouldn't be a good idea?
Trout fisherwoman here, too! :-) That sounds really nice!
No, if you are a jerk, then so am I. Let's not go there, lolol! :-)
