I found the telly remote. I'm sure my Iona sister, Tori, will be laughing when she reads this because I do this all the time :-D Except of course, now, all the places I would normally look for something that I lost are all cleaned up - it makes it challenging.
It was on one of the plant stands in the sunroom, but sitting down in a tray rather than up on the ledge. I have no idea why I set it there. :-D
