Unsolved Mystery: The Case Of The Missing Page

Where is Columbo or Sherlock Holmes when I need them?

I know it’s hard to see, but the story I was reading way back then is about the Maurice Richard family.

The thing is, afterwards, I clipped the photos from this story and glued them into my scrapbook, which I would do, and that’s all fine and dandy. But several years ago, this one particular page went missing and remains missing to this day. I remember most of what was on here. After all, I looked at my scrapbook about a thousand times over the years, I think.

But it’s vanished into thin air, I have no idea what happened, and I’m not pointing fingers. It’s all just very strange.

It’s also too bad because this page not only had Rocket family pictures in it, but also a nice postcard autographed by the man.

Maybe it’ll show up some day. But I’m not holding my breath.

Last year I did a nine-part series on this old Habs scrapbook, and if you would like to see the pages that didn’t go missing, just click away:

  1. Hey Dennis, Well that really sucks eh,that is a piss off when you cant remember where or what you have done with something,I once thought I would hide the spare key to my truck in case…of nothing,I had a few pops before and it just seemed like a good thing to do.It went missing for over three years,until I stumbled upon it under a dresseer,great hiding place eh.I wonder,did you decide to put those pages away after our encounter at the pub a few months ago?Maybe one day the Rocket will launch his clippings back into you possesion.

  2. Thanks Derry. It’s just one of life’s little mysteries. But it’s not the end of the world. There’s lots of other pages. It’s just weird, that’s all.

  3. Derry beat me to it.

    The other thing you may have done and I have done this to myself over and over, is you might have seen it was loose so you took it out and put it somewhere “safe” until you bought some more glue. Naturally, life happens and you can’t remember where that safe spot was. There is a good chance it will pop up someday when you’ve forgotten all about it and you least expect it. That’s usually the way these things go.

    I had an aunt who used to put things away for safe-keeping when she was three sheets to the wind. The result would be you’d find oranges in the dryer, kraft dinner boxes in the fridge, etc. They had to hide keys on her all the time.

  4. Thanks Darth,
    It wouldn’t surprise me if it was me who lost it. I’ve been losing my mind for a long time. I’m also still wondering why the comments box wasn’t ticked a while ago.

  5. Chris, anytime is a good time for DKRFS beer. But this might work. I’ll wake up with a lampshade on my head and my scrapbook page in my hand.
