I had a ribbit once, have to admit it did pretty well even though I had to resurrect it a few times. But I eventually traded it off for a Ranger! I think it died three or four times before I finally had to give it up. Took a lickin' kept on tickin'.

Well I guess I can quit ripping this place apart looking for my eggs then since you took out the bunny.
I'm almost at the point where I can hide my own anyway..

If I hid my own eggs, I would come up short every year

I've heard that forgetting where your keys are is no cause for concern, but forgetting what they are is. You just turned that on its head.

The worst possible case is to get close enough to that line to be able to see the other side of it and still not get all the way across it.

(Sorry for such a sharp turn from light-hearted humor to gloomy reality, but I've been reading the threads on "2012 Titanium Front Strut Low Speed Noise (Clunk/Rattle)" and it has me really down.)

With this Titanium and it's push button start, combined with my age, I worry I won't remember that cars even NEED keys to start.

True story. I have the tendency of walking out to my car, sitting, putting on my seat belt, and then pushing the button...to not start.

Undue seatbelt, open door, go look for fob...

Exactly. Or just to put something in the car or trunk. I'm used to not locking the door, and just opening it. No fob, it won't let me in!

I've started putting the fob in my pocket first thing in the morning and leaving it there until bedtime, along with my pocket knife.

Yeah, that key doesn't leave my pocket. I went to go move my sister's car and I put the key on my carabiner, I got in her car, closed the door, and sat there confused for a few seconds before I realized I needed to take the key out of my pocket.

It's also a force of habit for me to grab the shifter knob near my right knee, but it's on the steering column in her car. So I end up putting my hand on nothing and look like an idiot.
