We're supposed to have enduring flurries today, my turn of phrase. Accuweather's Wintercast (winter forecast) has us in a snow event: flurries for 8 hours. The temps are cold, 29 (F) and are only predicted to top in the mid 30s. Tomorrow it's back up into the 50s. The long range forecast has the temps seesawing, but then we're only a little over 3 weeks from Spring.
Every now and then we do things we later regret, such a thing happened to me yesterday. My backdoor is usually unlocked during the day because the dogs go out, sometimes a lot, depending upon how many bunnies decide to run through the yard. For some unknown reason, yesterday morning I turned the little tab on the doorknob to lock in the morning. No problem. I could still go outside, I just needed to leave the door open. Of course, yesterday was windy and while Lily and I were out cleaning up dog doo, a gust of wind slammed the door shut. Shit. I was locked out. Both front and back doors were locked tight. Double shit. My only access was through an unlocked window. That meant climbing up on a small storage unit, forcing the window open and pulling myself up 5 feet to clamber in through the opening. Oh, and I forgot to tell you Biggie was inside. As I teetered on the window sill, half in and half out, he took advantage of me. Yep, he gave me a face bath with his rather large tongue. In spite of my situation, locking myself out and all, I had to laugh. And, changes have been made so I never lock myself out again.

If anyone had any doubts about Tulsi Gabbard being a Russian asset, they should have been dispelled last evening when she compared Joe Biden to Hitler. Rumors of this have gone back to the days when she was a Senator from Hawaii. She changed her party affiliation from Democrat to Independent, though sides with Republican Right Wing extremists. I don't doubt she's bitter about being a failed politician. Trying not to be relegated as a 'has-been,' she's chosen a path that will take into the only loving arms that will have her.
Now why did I know the outcome of your being locked out before the end of your paragraph. I think the Biggie has the right idea. Anyone who tries to enter the house through a window probably needs a good tongue lashing. Now, wash your face and have a great day.ReplyDelete
Just so you know, I was trying not laugh while he was licking my face off; the last thing I wanted to do was open my mouth.Delete
Ha, I wish someone had gotten a picture of you hanging half out the window getting "a facial" from Biggie! We don't have those kinds of door locks over here but I remember when my oldest was just a couple of weeks old, my in-laws left to go for dinner and I was loading up the car outside their house to leave right after them. And of course I did exactly what you just described, only with a newborn lying on the floor!!! Thankfully he was so little he couldn't move but talk about panic until I could get hold of the inlaws to come back home (no mobile phones then). I hate those bloody doors even now!ReplyDelete
I did think about one of my neighbors taking a picture, luckily for me, everybody works.Delete
Locking yourself out of the house is something you need only do once before learning your lessen. I keep both my doors unlocked, though the door to the garage is protected by the garage.ReplyDelete
Believe me, a lesson has been learned.Delete
