a pox on both our houses?

For at least a decade my parents have endured mischief in their silverware drawer. Gradually, all of their forks have disappeared and been replaced with mysterious forks from different sets. They have the same number of forks they started out with, but they are now mismatched. Nobody knows how or why this happens.

The Hensley household seems to be suffering from the same affliction.

We should have eight of these forks:

Instead, we have seven of the original set and this mystery fork:

Where did it come from? Where is our eighth fork? What is the meaning of this?????

Coincidentally, Lydia visited us last week. Now I'm not making any accusations, but that seems suspicious to me.....


  1. hmmmm.... curious. Maybe you should have another Thanksgiving dinner and see if the original fork returns.

  2. very curious. Check the back of the "Waldo" fork for the silver mark. Maybe it's sterling silver and worth something. And check with the couple that had to bring their own plates to dinner.

  3. Ah man, I only WISH I would've thought of that.
