How do you lose a knife?
Just happened to notice yesterday afternoon that the sheath was empty. I hadn’t been rolling around on the ground under anything yesterday, I’d remember that. I can only hope I absently laid it down somewhere, I do things like that sometimes. I looked everywhere I can think of around the cabin and came up empty. If I just misplaced it, it’ll turn up eventually. If somehow it fell out of the sheath, there’s a terrible possibility it’s gone for good. This morning I’m working on Landlady’s batteries and will search around the powershed, chicken house and barn.
In the meantime I have other perfectly good belt knives. But the knife I’ve carried every day for years is my favorite by a wide margin, and for good reason, and literally irreplaceable. I am bummed.
