My local hardware store has utility knives with their name
imprinted for sale next to the checkouts. They come in
3 colors, bright green, orange, and black. I now have
a complete set since I have bought one whenever I couldn't
find one at home/in the toolbox/wherever. I currently
know the location of 2 of these (green and black) but
I have seen the orange one within the last couple of months
so I know it still exists . . . somewhere.
Ehhh...I'm not convinced. My dad always used to blame me for losing his
tools. These days, the second and third place I look for my missing tools
are his garage, and his barn, and I usually find my tool that I'm looking
for, and at least one other that I didn't know he had that's mine. There's
a pattern here, and it's not "Dave losing his dad's tools".
Me too! Moreover, every year I buy him new tools, and every year I find
more of my tools at his house, with no trace of the ones I just bought him.
Tool organizers and other gadgets wind up empty, with not a tool in sight.
But I still get blamed for how I used to lose all his screwdrivers when I
was a kid.
(Well, I do lose all my screwdrivers as an adult. But I learned it honest!)

I made two solid wood doors for a project I am making, and one of them has
just vanished completely. It HAS to be in my garage/shop somewhere, but I
have turned it inside out three times and can only find one of them.
Alien research activities?
My 'Building Construction Illustrated' went missing last week I checked
every bookshelf in the house, under the bed, bathrooms, truck, truck bed,
behind/under truck seats, made three trips to the shop, went through all the
cabinets and shelves there, did it again, did it once more ... and finally
borrowed my architect's copy.
Walked in the shop Monday morning and there it was sitting on a cabinet
shelf in plain sight. If you've ever seen this book, there is NO way to miss
it on a bookshelf!
