Look!

found necklace

It's the necklace!

found necklace

See why we couldn't find it?

And isn't it good fortune to find it on New Year's Day? Perhaps it was lost and stayed lost for the very purpose of being found on New Year's Day. And I was just saying that the 7 was lucky. Do I dare to predict a good year?

The necklace wants to be found.

Ruth Anne: Was I supposed to say it right away? I forgot. Anyway, I wasn't the one who found it. Is Tony going to mess with my luck now?

Tony may make your earrings fall off randomly! Sacrifice a piece of jewelry that you now view as a fashion faux pas, and you're good!

7 is certainly prime, and people like prime numbers.

But 2007 is 669 x 3.

I threw some runes which said it wasn't supposed to be found until 7/7/07. Then I did a Tarot card reading which indicated it wasn't supposed to have been lost until 1/1/07. The Ouija board says it's not even the necklace you're looking for. What to do, what to do...

I believe you own an apology to some squirrels... ;)

Oh, lucky 7th comment!

Well, see,here's the problem. It's a Berber carpet. As you well know, Berbers don't have Saints, they have marabouts.

If you'd slaughtered an animal to Marabout Anthony, you'd have had a shot.

Not even your saphie bag can save you know.

This is a digression, but I'm curious about Saint Anthony, or St. Ant'ny as he's known in New Orleans. Besides his finding aspect, have any of you heard about his help being requested with selling a house? I think the ritual is to bury his statue in the yard, upside down and facing away from the house. I guess if you ever decide to do the condo thing, Ann, you could give that a spin to help sell the one you're in now.

Your carpet looks like white hominy.

Elizabeth, I thought you buried St. Joseph to sell your un-selling house.

David said...

Lucky you didn't run over it with the vacuum. By the way, when was the last time you vacuumed the Berber?

Just asking!

Pogo said...

Question is: where has it been until now? I'll bet that spot has been looked at already, and gone by many times, maybe even vacuumed, but there it sits, as if dropped. "But I already looked there!", you say.

Indeed you have. One begins to suspect the malign work of the squirrel fairies, who abscond with prized possessions only to retrun them once all hope is lost. They remove bookmarks form the right page, eat the last of the brown sugar you were going to bake with, and have a predilection for one earring (not both).

The appropriate atonement for sins against squirrels is a bag of walnuts. It won't mean any less mischief, of course, but the squirrels do appreciate the gesture.

If you mistakenly bury St. Joseph near where you previously buried a potato, you don't sell your house any faster, but suddenly your old warts are in great demand on ebay.

Elizabeth said...

Pogo, that's gotta be right! MMan, nope, it's St. Ant'ny. Something about him having sold his home and possessions to give to the poor, I think.

Great news! Somehow, this post seems just a short distance from eggagog territory... I'm not sure why. Well, perhaps not. Happy New Year anyway.

THE NECKLACE CAN'T REACH THE DVD SHELF!!! THE SUPER CREEPS ARE FINDING THE SAINT'S VACUUM CLEANER!!! THE WRAPPING PAPER HAS BEEN SEARCHED THOROUGHLY!!!

A man-squirrel stole it, and then gave it to his girl-squirrel, whereas she opined: "That little thing, blech, take it back!"
