>It was a rainy and windy day in October, not a dark and stormy night, but it was still unpleasant. My fellow teacher and I made it a little more pleasant by going out to lunch after a half day of school. During that lunch I took off my lanyard and dropped my jump drive into my bag behind the car seat – or so I thought.
As the weekend went on, I looked for the jump drive. It was nowhere to be found. I thought “Maybe it’s at school,” even thought I knew better. When I got back to school on Monday, my friend agreed: she remembered my taking it off and putting it in my bag, saying “I might need this to get some work done this weekend.” So the mystery was yet unsolved.
I kept looking, started using the back-up files from my hard drives, compiling them once again in a convenient place.
In mid-December on a truly dark and stormy night, Chuck encountered a surprise. He was dressing himself to clear the driveway of snow, reaching for gloves and a hat, when he dislodged an umbrella standing in the same area of the back hallway. As he reached for the umbrella, something fell out.
