Now… That story makes much more sense. Actually, I think I would look for that lost bearing too, lol. Even if I had 10 extra bearings that fit the Fiesta.
I would just be so curious how/where it could have vanished?
But I think I would order a few bearings, first. And then I would go back to looking for the mystery bearing.
That way, there is less pressure of having to find the lost one; and more mental energy to look for it; knowing that even if you don’t find it; the partial solution is in the mail.
But, regardless, I wouldn’t take it out on the lawn, lol. Just crawl along, looking for the bearing carefully; like a Homicide Detective; looking for evidence.
Sometimes it is Amazing, where you eventually find stuff. I understand how completing a ‘Mission’ sometimes cancels out any feeling of the time you seem to be wasting.
It seems more like wasted time; if you end up not finding anything. Everybody likes a happy ending.
