I'll start this story by telling you I will no longer get to sleep in the teeny tiny cabin:
My parents bought a place near the beach:
But here is the funny part. After Mom called and told me, I found the place on the internet and it had all sorts of pictures and here is a picture of one of the rooms:
Now here is the really funny part. It comes pretty much as is. That means they will have to deal with all that junk! I've been walking around for TWO DAYS laughing maniacally and shouting "PAYBACKS ARE HELL!!" (If you are new here, I spent the better part of last year going through and cleaning out my parents' house here after they pretty much abandoned it to retire to N.C.) heh heh heh heh HA HA HA HA.
Now Laugh AT me:
Two weeks ago we installed a pet door that goes from a door in our garage to our side yard. I placed it as far away from the doorknob as possible, but after we put it in, we tested it and you CAN reach through and open the door. So I did a temporary thing until I could replace it with a key only deadbolt:
And what is that stuff on the door, you ask? That's my homemade boobytrap:
But that's not the funny part. Monday morning, Mrs.V, my meals on wheels lady, called to tell me she had "found" some pots that a neighbor had put out for trash. She asked if I could bring her some potting soil. I said, sure and when My Sweetie got home from work I said, "Tomorrow I'm going to go get some dirt and a keylock deadbolt for the garage." He asked if I needed any money and I laughed and said, "You just gave me $60 and I'm only getting a deadbolt and some dirt!" Well I am stoopid and have no idea how much stuff costs. I bought the deadbolt, two extra keys, the dirt and a few flowers and it was $70!! I imagined everything would cost about $40. Hell, the deadbolt was $45! How stupid am I?
But I thought my booby trap was pretty cool.
