Greetings and Good Wishes to all of you! We have been very busy here at BMI adding new services and offerings, so much so that the month has zipped by and I cannot believe it is time for another edition of The On Ramp! It is almost like I have lost a month...
Speaking of "lost"....that is the theme of this month's newsletter: Lost and Found.
As I reflect back...I believe my "specialty" is losing (and finding) my keys. I remember years ago I lost my car keys. I looked everywhere for them. Gone. They were simply gone. I was driving a station (MOM) wagon at the time, and one Saturday as I headed out of town (with the spare set of keys) I started up a grade. I caught a glimpse of something in my rear-view mirror....something that caught my attention and appeared to be sliding of my car? I pulled to the side of the road, walked back a short distance, and sure enough....there were my "lost keys"! Apparently I had set them on the top of the car, while removing one of my kids from their car seat. The amazing thing was...I had "lost" the keys several weeks before...and put many many miles on that old station wagon before they decided to slide off! Who would have thought?
Another time....again, my keys were missing for several weeks "GONE". I had quit looking for them in trash bags and sofas. I was again using the spare keys, and had accepted the fact that the set of keys were forever gone. The time came to clean my aquarium...a monthly weekend chore. As I was beginning the task....what should I find behind the decorative castle in my aquarium? MY KEYS! Apparently I had set them on the aquarium (DUMB)....and they had slipped through an opening in the aquarium hood and fell to the depths of my tropical fish paradise. Now...Who would think to look in their AQAURIUM for their keys?!? I do...every time the keys go missing...I look in the aquarium since I have finally surpassed the MOM WAGON era.
I have continued to lose and find my keys many many times since. I am relatively certain that I shall never not be able to find my keys...I must just be patient, and they WILL appear!
I hope you enjoy this edition of The On Ramp, and as always, I welcome your comments and additions to the newsletter! Please email me at email@example.com
