We had a morning filled with activity...including getting the keys locked in the car! Had a late lunch. When we got home, we both changed into "play" clothes and went our own ways. When I finally was ready to take Daisy out with me to walk the field and look for the FitBit..DH approached and said: "you'd better wear this" and handed me the missing FitBit. He had gone out looking by himself...figured out a systematic way to look..and found it. SO much like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack! I still am amazed.
THANK YOU my eagle eyed scavenger Hubby!!!

I just CAN'T believe it!
Every time I recharge my fitbit, I seem to forget to put it back on. Today, I charged it and got distracted by a grandchild...and forgot it here by the computer. When DH and I decided to take our walk, I remembered it and came back up to get it and put it on.
A couple of weeks ago, the clip for my FitBit Ultra finally broke, so I have been wearing it tucked into the fabric wrist thing, pinned and tucked into my bra. So..after retrieving the Fitbit from the charger, I tucked it into the bag..tucked the bag back in place and we took off. We walked a full circuit of the cow field...I picked up a golf ball, sticks, a rock...lots of bending over along the walk..plus we had the dog and grandchild w/bike along for plenty of distraction.
When I came back to the computer to see how my step count was doing...I was shocked to see only about 2000 steps...my early morning check! What was wrong....then the truth, the Fitbit was gone.
I checked carefully, then went to tell my husband. We re-walked the total walk...looking and searching the ground..mud, grass, sticks..everything the whole way. My sweet husband is a sharp eyed scavenger...but we never did find it. He thought it was probably here in the house..but so far, I haven't found it.
I could just cry..but that wouldn't help. So, I probably got my 10,000 plus steps..and know I have done at least 13 flights of stairs..but that will be my last count (unless I either find the FitBit or can figure out my old pedometer...some may remember THAT one getting lost during a summer clear-the-fenceline project!)
So, now I begin saving up for another one I guess...and will keep searching. It will be good motivation to make that walk again..daily!

I get these emails!!!! Here is another one to enjoy.
" I think every human should get a chance to read this!!!!"
A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in a
Midwest town he planned to visit on his
Vacation. He wrote: I would very much like
To bring my dog with me. He is well-groomed
And very well behaved. Would you be willing
To permit me to keep him in my room with
me at night?"
An immediate reply came from the hotel
Owner, who wrote: SIR: "I've been operating
This hotel for many years. In all that time, I've
Never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes,
Silverware or pictures off the walls. I've never
Had to evict a dog in the middle of the night
For being drunk and disorderly. And I've never
Had a dog run out on a hotel bill. Yes, indeed,
Your dog is welcome at my hotel.
And, if your
Dog will vouch for you, you're welcome to stay

I have some ridges that are the length of my thumbnails. I was curious as to whether this is something to worry about or not...after all, things like our fingernails give clues to our general health and sometimes reveal specific issues we need to address.
I have looked this up before, but need a memory refresher now and then. Apparently, as we age, developing vertical ridges is not unusual. One site said that the first thing to consider is dehydration....and recommends drinking LOTS of water to rehydrate from the inside out. It also recommended nourishing the nails with moisture from the outside...topically applying moisturizer especially for nails and cuticles.
So, we DO need to drink that water..even for our fingernails. If you develop horizontal ridges or odd coloring in your nails...be sure to investigate..these can be alarm signals to more serious issues.
