Slapping myself

Yeah I did a dumb thing today.  I locked myself out of the mind whatsoever.  I had my wallet and my car keys but no purse with house keys in it and no cell phone.  I went to the local hardware store and asked if they knew of a locksmith, they did and started to write down his number and then I had to ask to use their phone.  The guy was very nice and let me and even dialed the number.  The locksmith came to the house and proceeded to try to pick the lock.  Yes, I said tried.  1960's locks are pretty sturdy little things and he couldn't get it to open...

So he went around the house looking at the windows (they are all locked) and tried the back door which was locked and chained and then finally went around to the front door where glory be it wasn't fastened all the way but the chain was in place.  Doggone thought it was shut.  He had to take the molding off the side of the door in order to get me in.  He even reinstalled the molding for me which was really nice.  So glad he got me in without having to go to the next step which was drilling out the lock.  All's well that ends well.

Now tell me why I left my purse in the house and only took my wallet...I don't know.  Old Timer's disease LOL

What have all of you been up to?  Lock yourselves out lately?

Keeping my purse and keys close,

  1. Oh my. Hubby locked his keys in his truck this morning, so he had to drive my car to work - only one set of keys (he'll learn one of these days, or not), ha ha!
