But! Every cloud has a silver lining (well, not every cloud, but some of them) and I am pleased to report that although I have not found my keys, I did fashion a new keyring out of some beads, which gave me the warm glow of creativity (or something). And even better, about an hour ago Patsington went down to the key-cutter-cum-cobbler at the shopping centre to get his key copied for me, and to make me laugh he got me a puppy key! A key with an image of a puppy on it! It's kind of deranged, like many of my favourite things. Behold!
Click on the image to see the full-size puppy key in all its glory.
In fact, I think this classy combo is BETTER than the stuff I lost. A silver lining indeed.
