    I think someone should make a remote or tv that has a find feature. So that the remote would ring or beep loudly till you were able to find it. (like many cordless telephones have)

    We took the recliner apart....no remote. No other cushions to look in.

    Whenever I lose the remote I can usually find it in my husband's hand. When he is in his recliner he even falls asleep holding the remote.

    DH found out you can't answer the remote or change channels with the phone. He tries to put each back where they belong now. Tired of my laughing.

    Just say this little prayer...St. Anthony, St. Anthony please come around. Something is lost and can't be found! Then say what you are looking for. I keep him pretty busy so hope he has time for you! Ha!

    ....how about having to call one's cell phone from the house phone simply to "find" it!!!!!!

    I know if we ever move from this house I will find so many things that I have lost...........behind, under, in between, etc.

    I haven't looked on top of the fridge and I think St. Anthony get tired of helping me find things :)
    Many times I have taken the remote out of DH's hand after he has fallen asleep in the recliner.
    I have not had to call my cell from the house phone to find it....yet!!
    My youngest son did however wash his cell phone with his baseball uniform. Needless to say, he had to get a new phone.

    I also cannot find the TV remote. Maybe they are together!

    My kids used to put random items like that in our shoes or the cleanout bag of the vacuum cleaner. Do you have a dog?

    I hate it when you HAVE TO clean to find something. (LOL) I don't mind cleaning - but - not to find something. What is really buggy is when DH hunts for an item with me. He will remember every thing he sees in a pile. In my world, I can tell him what ISN'T there - the lost item!! (LOL)

    For me, I find it as soon as I put the new one away. There is the one I lost right where it belongs!

    We're always losing the phones in the house (got 3 remote phones). It's usually me trying to find them when it starts to ring. DH has a habit of carrying them off when he's talking and he doesn't remember where he puts them. I have found all 3 of them right next to one another....none in the correct place. LOL Glad you found one...keep looking, the remote will turn up where least expected.
