Just a Note

Even though I honestly have absolutely no expectation of finding my ruby, I carefully search the sweepings up before tossing them away. I've found a lot of dog fuzz, plenty of mown grass and quite an astonishing lot of glitter. Which twinkles. Momentarily raising my minimal-to-non-existent expectations. But that's all.

On the plus side, my floors are really clean.

I love clean floors. But I think finding a Ruby in a dust pan full of dog hair would be splendid. So you should continue to drive yourself nuts and examine all sparkly dust bunnies.

Did the spouse take off all of the sink traps, did you pick thru the vacuum bag, did you move the fridge, look along the rails of the bed frame.....just trying to help.

Rubies can only be found on Tuesdays. It's in the song somewhere.

No no no JP, they can only be lost on Tuesdays. pft. Finding a ruby will only occur on any other day but Tuesday. Know you nothing?! Also, I think Lorraine lost said ruby as bad karma for her treatment of Sharon Stone.

When vaccuuming the carpet,put a nylon stocking over the vaccuum cleaner nozzle,and the ruby will stick to it!..
I did that to find a contact lens one time.
Why do you hate Sharone Stone?

Years from now, one of The Child's babies will be crawling around and you will discover the ruby in the kid's mouth.

Oh dear... this isn't working... I keep meaning to read your blog daily, but the annual madness of exam marking just keep interfering. Maybe I should just do what JP did and admit that I need to go into hibernation until the end of July? Anyway, enough about me.

I don't want to give you false hopes, but the Divine L lost her engagement ring a while back... and then it turned up weeks later underneath the bath tub!!!

Having said that, plan a trip to Dubai for some new rubies: the jewellery's great there and it's relatively cheap.

It really would, Sage.

Rosie, no sink traps have been removed because, eeewww. She'll either magically turn up or she won't. Either way, I have enough dog fuzz to make a blankie.

Exactly, Cuz. Silver lining and all that.

JP, what Hat said. Sheesh. Don't you pay attention?

Hat, I'm also responsible for all the tornados everywhere.

Sling, oh, if only I had a carpet...

Buck, now that's an exciting prospect. "Give it to Nana, Baby. Give it to...crap".

DA, not to worry...I'll be here whenever you happen to stop by. Cheap rubies in Dubai...although I suspect the price of the plane ticket has to be factored in...
