Default 2007 Dodge Ram HEMI Vacuum Hose Question

In changing out my plugs over a course of several days... & I had to remove a couple of hoses that went to the brake booster canister. The larger of the two, I've re-attached and ensured a tight fit with no problem. The smaller port hose apparently fell off and I don't know enough about the engine to know where the hose re-attaches. I would expect somewhere in the manifold area but not sure. Can someone help me with this?

Default 2007 Dodge Ram Brake Booster Vacuum Hose Dilemma

I thought you might like a chuckle or two... I resolved my 2007 Dodge Ram Brake Booster Vacuum Hose dilemma.
Embarrassing doesn't even cover it. I feel like the biggest dummy in the whole world. Here's what I found out:
Apparently, after working hard changing out 16 plugs in my HEMI, it was getting dark and I was trying to "getter dun." Well, I inadvertently stuck the vacuum hose coming from the throttle body onto the "capped" port on the front of the booster canister...hence, leaving the "correct" vacuum port uncovered. I was about to pull my hair out trying to "relocate" a phantom hose I thought had fallen off somewhere while I was "test driving" my vacuum hose brake booster problem.
I about fell off the bumper when, to my surprise, I dislodged the vacuum hose while trying to re-attach the manifold cover.
I guess I will just chalk it up to live and learn...the hard way sometimes...but, I promise I won't make this mistake again.
