The capo like the one at left above disappeared into thin air October 16, the new 30$ capo is at right!!

Recently playing guitar I removed the capo that was on the neck at the third fret and put it on the table, an hour or so later after going outside to check the letterbox when I came back in it was gone!


They say Pixies have a propensity to borrow things, maybe some Pixie dude like the one above wished to serenade his lady love and just had to have a capo, maybe I should expect some Pixie gift in return .. here's hoping, I would like my guitar playing to improve, I wonder if they can fix that up for me :)

They leave gifts and expect something in return .. did you recently find something, and didn't leave anything in return?


Not entirely .. a dude came by here to measure up for new window shades, he saw my guitar set up and told me he found a pile of broken guitars on the roadside, he said the only thing he could salvage was an Epiphone headstock that had a full set of very classy Epi machine heads.

As a non player he said he had no use for them, and just gave me the broken headstock before I could say no .. I thought about giving him an extra crystal ball I have here as a return gift, but did not want to precipitate an exchange on the basis of such a casual acquaintanceship .. that was the day before the capo went west!

That is not the end of it all .. after the last round of posting, I decided to check the shopping bags one last time before they turned into garbage bags, in the off chance the capo would turn up there, and found 50$ I had withdrawn at the supermarket checkout which had gone in with the receipt :)


Disappearing Object Phenomenon

That which was lost has been found .. the capo turned up Thursday October 31, 2013, hanging on a lead that runs under the table to my workstation desktop, which had been installed after the initial disappearance. The guy who gave me the broken headstock came by here again and I returned his gift .. the entire disappearance and reappearance saga resonates with similar stories at the above website!

It has happened again ..


Last Friday August 26, 2016, after doing the shopping and bringing things home I heard my sunglasses drop onto the floor, I looked straight away and could not see them, it was a bright sunny day and since I had just come in out of the light I thought it was because my eyes had not adjusted.

After putting the shopping away I searched again, then cleared everything away and mopped the floor all for neg results .. now nearly one week on they have still not turned up.
