I got up early and went to Denny's restaurant for the monthly ham breakfast. First dumb thing I did was go way too early. Well, that was OK, because the nice waitress took me back to the room where we meet and and told me to take my pick of seats and asked if I wanted coffee, which she returned with pronto. I decided to go ahead and order so I could get my breakfast down so I wouldn't be trying to talk and eat at the same time. (You know, we old farts have trouble doing two things at once.) I was about half done when other hams started to arrive, so I wasn't the only "early bird". We had a good meeting and since my wife (who I left at home) wanted to go to the flea market, I decided to leave just before 09:00. I got out to my Jeep and that is when I knew I was really dumb.
You see, it was a little cool this morning with a breeze blowing, so I put on a jacket. When I got there, I got out of the car, pushed the lock down on the door, and then decided I didn't need to have my jacket on just to go into the restaurant. I took it off, threw it in the car, and shut the door. Later, when I came out to come home and pick up my wife, I discovered that the keys to the Jeep were in my jacket pocket. I tried all the doors and the back hatch, but all were locked up tight. I called my son, but he was out of town at a rabbit show, showing his prize rabbits. (one of his hobbies is raising show rabbits) He suggested to ask one of the hams to take me home, and I did. My wife insisted to return with us and that she would hold on to HER keys.
All worked out well, except for a lot of wasted time. We did get to the flea market. Didn't stop at home, just went on down the road to the flea market. I did get some stuff today. I got 50 feet of air line and some quick disconect fittings so I could plug into the air outlet on the rear of the RV in case of a flat tire. Just wanted you to know why I am late writing this blog and I want you to remember to have a great day, you hear?
