This may be the only thing we haven't lost! We are having a run of bad luck recently with lost checkbooks and earrings... misplaced I should say because those were found. Now it's something REALLY important. Something that can't be easily replaced. Hubby is upset, I'm very upset. We used this item almost daily and now it's gone, GONE. Disappeared from the Earth, poof! The last time we saw it was Sunday afternoon before the kids came over for dinner. After they left Hubby settled down in his favorite chair, turned on the History Channel and realized it was gone. We took cushions out, we looked under furniture. Had it just grew legs and walked off or maybe, just maybe we had put it away? THAT is unlikely!
We have a special place in the entertainment center, an "Aches and Pains" drawer. You don't have an Aches and Pains drawer? Inside this drawer resides the buckwheat heating pad, the corn heating pad...poker chips, checkers and cards. The games don't get much action, but the heat pads...well, let's just say they see daylight a lot these days! Missing from the drawer is a rice bag. It was handmade by me, the idea from my SISTER-in-law way back in the 1970's. I think we may have used it once during that decade. Maybe twice or 3X during the 1980's. We were 40's during the 1990's so that's when it came to live in the family room.
I don't know where it got off to, but I know what I'm going to make this week. You need to save the directions below, you may not need it now, but you will someday...
