That always creeps me out when something like that happens at a place you're at on a regular basis.

Oh my goodness, how awful! So glad your father is okay. I know exactly what you mean about how scary that sort of thing is--when I was in college someone went on a shooting spree on our campus and killed 2 people right where I would have been walking to class if I hadn't been running a few minutes late that morning.

My brother was in student accommodation in the Toxteth area of Liverpool at one point - and I was mightily relieved when he moved, because there were two murders on his route home while he was living there.

Not my father Mopp, BB's father. I wish mine was still alive, sigh.

My bad, SM, didn't read the thread properly. (I remembered about your father but thought you must mean a stepfather. I still talk about my parents when I really mean my father and stepmother, mother being dead).

My birth father was never really in the picture, so Nick was the only father I really knew. He was my mother's first husband and my sister and brother's birth father.

It's ok hugs!

I lost a 24 Roll package of toilet paper today.

Mom and I went to the store today, and after we had finished checking out with our other stuff, mom reminds we need TP, so I go and get some, pay for it, and that's the last thing I remember about it, until she asks where it is and I can't for the life of me remember.

I call the store but no one turned it in and the driver of the Access van that took us home has stopped for the day and of course it's a temp, not an islander.

Thankfully the store said I can bring in the reciept and get a new package.

Talk about losing ones mind.

How strange! You didn't go for a coffee somewhere and leave it behind? Mind you, I wouldn't have thought it would be something you could mislay easily!! LOL. You don't think someone else has taken it accidentally on purpose??
