Ahhh...yesterday we ate lunch in the dining room with a friend. Later we met up with her in the grocery store and she asked if Ken had picked up her keys. He pulls a set of keys out of his pocket which were the set to our apartment. The friend shakes her head and goes on her way. Later I ask again for him to check his pockets and he pulls out a set of keys...HER keys this time. I grabbed them and managed to catch up with her and returned her keys to much relief on her part. Ken had picked up both sets in the Brookdale dining room after lunch. I explain to him that that incident didn't happen in our apartment but in the big Dining Room. He keeps pointing to our dining table and I repeat that it didn't happen in our apartment. He finally accepts it as, hopefully, some memory of yesterday creeps in.
Two weeks ago he lost his house keys (which includes a clicker to open the security gates) somewhere between our apartment and the dining room. We checked everywhere with no luck. He had already lost the identifying card on them so if found, there was no way they could be identified as his. So I went to the hardware store and got him new keys, bought a new $50 clicker and a new ID card. Still no mail box key but he never used it anyway. So someone around here has themselves an additional clicker and some useless keys.
I have asked him if he would wear the keys around his neck like a lanyard but he's not enthusiastic. I may try it anyway. That way he would not have to lay them down anywhere. Hummmm...suggestions anyone?
