It’s so frustrating to lose something small out in the yard. Our grass doesn’t grow very fast like it does in wetter regions. In those areas, the grass can get tall fairly fast, and if someone loses something then they might need to consider metal detectors to help them find it (if it had metal in it). But really, little things can get hidden in any length of grass. A long time ago, I dropped some coins in the grass and it took forever to find them! A metal detector would have come in very handy! Have you ever lost something in the grass?
I remember losing the other half of my pair of earrings. It was such a bummer and I just gave up! If I had some kind of metal detector, I would have found it.
Anne, I think I lost one of my earrings a long time ago, too, now that you mention it.
