...I can't remember who I loaned it too If it was one of my good friends who read the forum, could you please return it at the earliest convenience, as I need it. I really don't want to have to purchase a new one if I don't have to.
Ok, guys, please go gently on a poor soul who can't remember anything anymore.....
Not to worry, The poor soul that borrowed it can't remember ether. Could be any of us old f--ts
out here,but not me. Grin
PS Been in your shoes (been there done that a few tines over the years.)
Your book is probably in the same place as my rear hub puller.It just vanished.I spent 2 hours a few nights ago looking for it,no luck in finding it.So far I have miss placed 2 headlight forks,& 2 firewall brackets.I believe that I have garage gremlins,that move things in the night,so I cann't find them.Now it appears that they are taking the few minutes that it takes to walk to your place, and are borrowing some fine Model T reading material.(Its probably behind your player piano,just where your cat left it,when he was finished reading it).
I once had a large pizza disappear without a trace before I even got a chance to eat it, box and all, off my kitchen counter. Many years later, usually over a glass of wine, I believe it is with all my mismatched socks due to a wormhole.
Darren, in a different thread, I mentioned a book on Australian slang that I used to have. It was also lent out and I don't remember where....
Lending books and lending money usually boil down to the same end result: you don't get either back.......
A really funny story about the Aussie who lost a carton of beer. He left it on the steps of his cabin at a tour stop and a US participant lifted it. We told him he didn't want to get between an Aussie and his beer, but he persisted.
Then, in a gesture of kindness, he offered it to his stricken victim, minus two stubbies, with the observation that this Aussie beer was not to his taste. Now the Aussie was not going to let a visitor from the States gIve him such hospitality, and insisted in paying for it, including the two missing bottles. Money accepted. What else could he do without starting world war three! All the while a bunch of us in the know had to keep a straight face throughout.
When I returned his funds after the guest had safely left the country, I heard the greatest string of abuse my tender ears had ever heard. I couldn't tell if he was really angry, or just annoyed at having been taken in!
