    To Be

    Hi! Itīs me again. How are you? Fine?


    Well , my question about the verb to be itīs if I
    can leave it alone at the end of this sentence.

    "My husband told me my keys were nowhere
    but I do know they ARE" to mean I do know the keys
    are at home but I donīt exactly know where.

    Or should it be like this?

    "My husband told me my keys were nowhere
    but I do know they are SOMEWHERE".

    I really hesitate here about Somewhere
    īcause it maybe needs an object.
    "somewhere over here" for instance.


    Thanks in advance!

    Well, I want to ask you as well about "Somewhere".

    Thanks in advance!

    'Somewhere' is fine.
