Well Guys, Thank God I didn't accuse the kid stealing the Mudman. After giving up on the whole thing. Saturday Morning, I was closing our small kennel that we were using for the last couple of days to baby sit a small maltese. So to close this kennel, it colapses for portability and after I disengaged the hinges and closed it up I picked up the daen thing to lean it against the wall, Well look what surfaced.
The Dam watch was trapped under the kennel the whole time. How it got to the bottom of the kennel from the top of the buffet table, is beyond me.
Anyway, I thank all who gave me their input. Here is the watch today.
