Daily review photo by Scott Miller looking into the lost and found and finding what was forgotten did you Ever put something away Only to forget where you put it Nee you forget where it is its it st. Losing something happens to everyone once in a while i so pose. Sometimes something which is it st was stashed away to keep it afe from prying eyes or from Burla is. The original intent was to keep the item but by forgetting Here it was put it becomes lost. Once in a while an object is not intentionally hidden but merely it away and after a Long period of Issue. You just forget where you it it. This object also becomes st. Sometimes losing something can e downright embarrassing los a second look t ing your keys is often embarrassing wallets Are often lost and that can not Only be embarrassing but costly As Well. You can lose articles of clothing in the Case of some articles this can be really embarrassing when you can to remember when or where you took them off it. Even Large objects can be put somewhere and forgotten sometimes they re intentionally lost an old Boss of mine once told me a Story about How an army Supply sergeant he knew buried a bus on the outskirts of an army base because his depot was t supposed to have a bus in the motor Pool he did t want the hassle of the paperwork that would come if someone found out he had a bus he was t supposed to have so he buried it. Every year there Are stories in the news about bulldozers and cranes disappearing from construction Sites and never being seen again. On a smaller scale How often have you parked your car in a Large parking lot Only to discover that you forgot where you parked it after you be finished with your business or pleasure9 you be lost your car. Done to feel too. Bad about it because bigger things than cars and heavy equipment can be lost. Many Large ships have been lost at sea. For example even whole cities can be lost Atlantis is lost Troy is lost ancient greeks Troy not Bradford county a Troy. Where do lost cities go often they Are just buried under newer cities and forgotten so everyone thinks there re lost. Speaking of burying things and losing them have you Ever seen squirrels looking for nuts that they a previously buried for Safe keeping9 there a no big trick to their ability to find the nuts again in the Winter they just Bury nuts All Over their territories and in the Winter they dig All Over the place figuring they re bound to find nuts sooner or later people who work for Street departments and utilities occasionally feel like squirrels when they go looking for old unmapped water sewer or Gas pipes. They dig All Over the place until they find them of course Many things that seem lost Arentt really lost at All the person who picks up a Dollar some one Tost on the Street knows where it is his pocket. The aforementioned Utility lines Are not lost they just cannot to get easily found that brings us to the other Side of lost something that is lost by someone and discovered by someone else is found in other words one persons loss is another ones find but on the other hand it s still a loss to someone. Is this reasoning difficult to follow does anybody feel lost you can gel lost on your Way to somewhere or something. Once you figure out where you re going again it is said that you be a found your maybe its time for me to find my Way out of this column and get lost. J
