....of the house was the easy part.
Clink as usual was headed over to the senior center to help quewl another crisis.

Like a friend of mind, his wife asked him what he was doing one Monday nite and her respounded, "I think I'll watch the game of the year."
Satisfied with that, and not wishing to take him away from his football game she started dressing to go out woithout him. "Where ya going?" he asked of her. "To Sears." she answered. "I'll go with ya he welcomed himself along. "But your game of the year?" she asked. "Oh! That's alright. there'll be another game of the year on next week!"

So, Clink was gone with her friend Sue. I went about doing the chores here and down the road.
Earlier my F-SIL had called and suggested we have coffee over at the cross roads. He had an errand and would call me in a bit.

I did my chores, emptied the grain box, hooked it up and took it home. Then decided I'd wind the windows down on the Cushman and pickup the supplements. No dice. The durnengine decide to pop, snap, and crack something fierce. Driving it a couple blocks brought it back to the barn. Un hitched truck from wagon and went after supplements.

Getting back I wondered what had taken F-SIL so long. I'll give call and see what's happened?..... No cell phone! What's worse, Clink's gone and my keys are locked in house! F-SIL could be anywhere. I need's cell-phone. One window I can open. Work my way up the wall pulling up and wiggling beneath window sash. Opps forgot to drop chore boots. Luckily I managed to cross the bed under the window missing MY pillow wishing I could say the same for Clink's.

So this is my situation. The grain;s ground I'm hungry, and Clink ain't homr to cook. I guess I'll go over to the cross roads and have lunch.

I'm trying for my life to remember if there's anything I should have done before worrring what's on the menu?

Catch ya-all later.

I live in town rather than on the farm dern it.
A few times I've gotten to the farm on my tractor without building keys, or have taken the truck without having tractor keys along.

I finally hid a set of extra keys at the farm just in case I got out there without the right set.

(mumbling to myself) make a note to take the metal detector out to the farm to look for the extra set of keys.

I hid them well, so well that even I can't find them after looking several times.

your day, ole buddy. Did ya remember to close the window? How about changing the soiled pillow case? I know the feeling, cause whenever I go anywhere, I recheck the doors two or three times to see if I've locked them........gfp
