    Where is it ?

    I've been in here a few times this morning so it must be here ! I think the ADD is kicking in. I can not work because I put my mask down and can not find it.

    Dose this happen to you ? put something down and can not find it. I know it's staring at me ....................

    OK mystery is over, Jarrod closed the garage door and I put it on the BBQ Grill. All I had to do was look outside ! Da

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I can't tell you how many times that happens to me.

    My problem is that with my OCD, I get so fixated on 'finding' what is missing that sometimes I'll look for hours...

    Tape measures and pencils for me. If I could get another couple dozen, I think I could eliminate the searching though.

    Jeb I have 4 type measures and I buy boxes of pencils at a time and sharpen about 6 at a time. So there is one laying somewhere with in eye sight. LOL

    Yeah I have at least 4 tapes. I think that's all I've ever found at one time, could have more lurking around the shop/house/garage. I've been tempted to make holders for every tool in the shop for pencils and tapes, and just keep one at every spot I might need one.

    No matter what I put down I can't find it 2 minutes later.

    I lose my drill press chuck key all the time. I'm about to the point of getting one of those retractable things to attach it to the DP.

    Just do it. One of the first things I did to my drill press many, many years ago. I can only imagine what would have happened to my very fragile sanity if I hadn't!
