We can't find the remote control for the television. I strongly suspect the shortest member of our household in aiding in it's disappearance, but she's not talking.

As a solution for dealing with the missing remote, we've just stopped watching the tube. It's easier than standing up and changing channels.

As a solution for dealing with the non-talking taker and hider of everything, we've just stopped watching her too. All of that chasing, feeding and entertaining was cutting into our free-time. Plus, she really prefers to do her down thing anyway.

We're all much happier now. I'd say she really did us a favor by getting rid of that pesky remote.

Oh! The remote thing started? Just
wait till you find the remote, but not the batteries. Better yet the remote in multiple pieces and a butter knife(not in the buttter)in the same room! They never talk
about it. It's always "NOT ME".
Who needs television anyway?
Remember there were no remotes at
a time past? Life! REJ

REJ - You scare me! I don't want to know it's going to get worse. Television is overrated.

How about this 'funny' story. My then ~2 year old nephew was over one day we had a lovely time. He left and we couldn't find the remote for the speakers. It is one of the small remotes, bigger than the 'fun size' candy bars at halloween but not by much. We figured it was in the couch, behind the couch, day after day we kept thinking of new places it might live.

Finally it occurred to me, I stuck my fingers in the VCR and pulled it out. Finally, sound control!

This was before he decided to stick Uncle's cell phone in a glass of water. On purpose. While watching to see everyone reaction. Fun fun fun.

I don't want to believe that this is going to get worse. Cell phones and water. Remotes in weird places. It almost makes borrowing our car a bit mild in comparison. Or, not...
