Doors, doors and more doors

In the summer it is very, very hot in Hemet. (It's also hot in the spring and fall). It becomes so hot that it shorts out the controls to our garage door opener. There a trick we discovered that puts the apparatus back into function mode. However, this is only if someone is inside the house to maneuver the switch located just outside the kitchen door through a little cut out in the side of our appliance shelf wall. We reach in, flip the switch from up to down to up again and this shoves the door open. Freckles, granddaughter and I arrived home Friday from a pot luck/swim at Ken and Eunie's and were stranded outside. Our front security door has two locks, our paned front door has two locks. For the latter door Freckles had the key. For the former door she had ONE key. There was one key missing. All our windows were locked. Legs climbed over the fence to our back patio. Gingerly she broke the window to our bird cage and our computers. Thence she unlocked the window, crawled in, and did the magic trick to open the garage door. They proceeded to tape a beach towel over the opening and picked up all stray pieces of glass and went on to put together a fabulous tiramisu for the big spaghetti dinner the following night. Next morning Freckles took the whole window frame to Mayer's Glass and had the pane replaced at half price because the office manager was one of her clients. They figured out some kind of "deal." We decided this morning that I should carry a set of keys too, so that is added to our list of errands today.


  • New keys are bought! New window's in! Spaghetti & Tiramisu's all gone! Happily ever after!

  • Good thing you had three of you to figure that out. But to brake a window? That took daring. Glad you got it taken care of...the window and the keys.
