Where the hell is …?

Said this the last trip as we were unhooking the trailer.  Where the hell is the two foot length of pipe which is used to release the weight distribution bars?  We can’t take them off until we do.

It’s much too shiny to be overlooked.  I know I put it in the cargo hold.  I KNOW IT.  Standing in that big parking area I just wanted to scream, “I KNOW I PUT THAT D&*$% THING BACK IN THE CARGO HOLD!

I pulled everything in that hold apart and out.  Went through every tub.  Fortunately, an RV park employee buzzing by on a golf cart found one for us to use.  As I’m putting the stuff back in, trying to ignore Margo giving me the I-told-you-so-stink-eye (for which I had no immunity), I curled my fingers in anger under the lip of the cargo hold door and BEHOLD! there it was.  By the next day Margo bought a piece of plumbing pipe which goes in the tool bag.  Never will we have to go through that again.

Margo carried them around to hardware stores looking for more.  Found one.  Gonna have to find the other.
