Can't Find What is in Front of Their Noses!

  Two old farts, digging for and looking for a DVD.  If they would have let Chance in there to look, I think he could have found the DVD.  Some time ago (can't remember when), we'd borrowed a DVD from Gene and Connie.  A Willie Nelson & Friends.  I don't remember if it was a good DVD or not, but after a half hour or so of them pulling pictures and junk out of the storage area  the guys finally gave up looking for the DVD.  The next day, though I figured I better clean the mess up, and found the DVD right away.  It wasn't in the storage area - it had been on top of the DVD player, but had slid off and was behind the DVD player!!!!  But now you could ask for any movie you like, and if we have it, it would now be found in alphabetical order!!!!!!  Would you believe that!  Really, the cupboard was a mess.  I removed all the candles, and pictures, picture frames, remotes and stuff that had been tossed in there and found new homes for them.  Now the only things there behind closed doors are DVD's and VCR's!  Look at the mess below!  Now both shelves are all nice and orderly.  Didn't take a picture of the after -   probably should have.   How do you like Gene's bald head?  Steve's loosing more hair all the time.  Maybe one of these days when I give him a hair cut/trim, I'll shave it all off like Gene's!
 After they gave up looking for the DVD, we played a couple of games of Golf!  Easy card game that we can sit a still do a lot of visiting and munching.  I'm about ready for another night of cards!

Ha!
That's just men for you!
They somehow always overlook the things that are right there under their noses.

Men seem to suffer from not seeing what's in front of them!!!

Typical men! Can't find a thing -even when it's right in front of them. You are probably right -Chance could have found it.

Thanks for stopping by. I can't see this photo and not think of the old Randy Travis song, "Forever and Ever, Amen". God Bless the old farts. I have one too. :)

So how close do you live to Gene and Connie? I have heard her mention you all before on a couple of posts.
Our spices aren't alphabetized - - but we have four shelves hanging inside the pantry door that have a section of the alphabet, e.g., "A-E" and that is where the Allspice, Basil, etc. go. It is so much easier and wastes less time.
