One hand clapping

A long time ago, some bright person developed a “finder” for keys. A simple, battery powered chirper that attached to your key ring, it sounded off in response to clapping:

Scene 1:  you walk through the house, clapping your hands and cursing.

Scene 2:  you are in a lecture, keys in your hand when everyone starts clapping.

Another one of those ideas whose time really never came.

Carmen mentioned lost phones. I don’t count mine lost till the battery runs down.  At that point, it could be hiding several inches from my nose with high success.


Pictures will magically show up when I am at a computer that allows for pix upload. I suppose I could have loaded them from my MAC to a memory stick, then hauled along to the pay computer station, but I don’t trust my toys in foreign USB ports.

What I managed to do was finish the body on Oragami, 80% of the first sleeve and about 8 cm on the second. I had forgotten how wonderful and mind numbing it it is to knit a patterned yarn in garter. Progress is actually visible as the color changes. Unlike those kilometers of solids in Hanne Falkenberg kits.

I also restrained myself and did not start socks to have an alternative knitting project (Pats self on back).

Yarn lusting and train trip reported tomorrow…..

One Response to One hand clapping

    I’ve been laughing at your stories of lost wallets and lost keys. I’m quite possibly even more disorganized than you think you are. I finally have come up with a system for keeping track of the essentials I need to get out the door in the morning: pager, keys, stethoscope, shoes, reading glasses. They all get stored in the same place every time, by the door to the garage.
