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..

I used to do that fairly often. when I knew that I was getting ready to ship out for months at a time. I would stash things for "safekeeping". Coming back months later, I would find some but not others. I have been retired from shipping for years. I still have stuff that I stashed back in the day that has yet to materialize.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....
