Epic Fail...
« on: December 19, 2013, 11:43:45 PM »
 Been in my new place just a few days now. Last night, I had to walk out to the garage to grab something. Just ran out real quick, so I didn't dress for it. Go to get back in only to discover I had locked myself out. And my phone was also inside. So, in 20 degree weather, I had to make a three mile trek down a busy state route in my boxers, a t-shirt, and my Harley Davidson biker boots to get to my friends house to have drive me back over an let me in with the key I gave her. Long story short, I now have another spare hid outside, and I'm still waiting for my second ball to drop back down after hiding from the cold.

A trick I learned while hunting in Alaska:  always tie a string to it before you get cold.  That way you can pull it back down when you gotta take a leak later.   8)
There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way.

Just got off the phone with a friend who lives on Scotland.  She said that since early this morning the snow has been nearly waist high and is still falling.
The temperature is dropping far below zero and the north wind is increasing to near gale force.  Her husband has done nothing but look through the kitchen window and just stare.  She says if it gets much worse, she may have to let the drunken bastard in.

I laughed my ass off the whole three miles. She felt terrible for me though, and couldn't laugh. Now that's a good friend!

First thing I did when moving to my house was install keypad locks on all the outside doors. I'm never locked out. Ever.
