This sad story was especially affecting last night. I had just gotten  
home after a dangerous return to a bed and breakfast where my office  
was hosting a reception.

Made the 25 mile drive home, started pulling stuff out of the car,  
when I realized my camera bag was not there.

Complete and utter panic. Called the B&B, got no answer

Jumped back in car and broke a couple of traffic laws. Got there to  
find the bag on the patio where I had left it while winding down  
after the event with associates from office. I am a very lucky and  
relieved camper.

Got home just in time to see the Hurricanes tie the Sabres, only to  
lose in overtime. I'm afraid I stole their luck. I'm wishing you some  
luck, too.
