From the Department of "How Did THAT Get There?"

Things found on the living-room corner hutch while decorating for Christmas:

–one giant oak leaf, almost too big to fit in a Ziplock gallon-size bag
–two complete decks of cards
–the three of hearts from a third deck of cards
–one guitar pick
–six pieces of Lego U-Build Battleship
–one sea shell (clam)
–one nonfunctional laptop battery
–two Cub Scout awards
–one penny
–one “little black book” of Lent reflections
–one big black patch with a white star and Indian chief pictured on it (I’m guessing this belongs to one of my Scouts?)
–one video camera
–program from MAME
Middle Sister’s certificate from her school’s fall Honors Assembly
–one blue plastic frog
–and a black-and-white plastic chicken foot, broken off some long-tossed action figure.

This is, of course, in addition to all the stuff that’s supposed to be on those shelves:  photos of all the cousins, our framed wedding invitation, and a statue of St. Joseph.  That cabinet is my living room’s very own, very dusty Black Hole.

  1. Love this list. Especially black&white chicken foot. Makes me want to assemble a not-at-all-similar list from under the fridge or under my couch.Mame is a great show.

  2. Little Brother appeared in MAME early this fall (and Middle Sister was on stage crew). There are programs everywhere :)I did discover that the patch with the star and Indian originally belonged to my father-in-law when he was in the military.
