Who else “tucks things away” and ends up not being able to find them?

Am I the only idiot that does this.
I just went out of town for the weekend and there was this oddball magazine sitting on my bench.
Hard to find, expensive etc so I figure I will just put it out of sight in the off chance some idiot breaks in and pockets it.

Two weeks later and that magazine is missing in action.
I have NO ideal where I might have thought was sufficiently ‘out of sight’.
So another episode of turning the house upside down to find the damn thing.

The worse ever was a BHP I stashed somewhere- it took me two years to find it..

I keep hoping on one of these searches I’ll find something another home owner here stashed up in the rafters.
THAT hasn’t happened yet but I’m still missing a case of 5.56 and an oddball magazine..

Wow- I really don’t know how much I should admit to here….

Well I got to the range today with the gun and look in the range bag- there is the magazine.
I forgot I had found it and put it in the bag.
Thing is having forgot I had found it I kept looking and found two others which went to the range with me in addition to the “lost” one.
So on the bright side I found all the missing magazines.

I “tucked away” $500 I had brought to a gun show last week and didn’t manage to spend.
Now missing..
I have thought I should draw a map where I hide stuff but no doubt I would hide the map ..

I did find my nicest watch while I was looking for the lost magazine- progress of sorts.

I got a yell from upstairs a few years back.
“I found a gun”.

The wife was going through a box of Christmas wrapping paper….

We have a nice arrangement- I don’t ask about the number of dogs around here and she (mostly..) doesn’t say anything about guns.
