    It is all in 20yrs of "depending" on another as a "safety valve", but when ya Need it, it ain't there....I wouldn't have had to walk but 1 way.....with her not here and not "knowing" a single person here....closest is an hr away....I had to "give it All I had"....it kinda reminded me off my "interupted" trip to @Mike CHS to see them....walking the town to find my truck....:)

    Many, if not most places, the local PD will open a locked vehicle for you if it's an old school type vehicle without a remote type coded key.
    Locking myself out of my truck (in 2009 100 miles from home) is why I now carry a spare key in my wallet at all times for my 08 Silverado.

    Even new vehicles! When DD1's car was hit last summer the responsible person's insurance company sent a guy out to assess, basically a new Ford SUV. Brilliant design, the door locks automatically when closed if the key isn't in the ignition. It had a keypad on the door but he didn't know the code. Apparently it was set by the sales guy and they hadn't changed it to something they would remember. He called the home office then Ford. A guy came out with his thin metal bar, had the door open 1 minute after he arrived.

    Haven't made that front door modification yet?

    Dang I'm sure sorry you had to go through all that!

    Fred is right, Joyce isn't a "sitter". Up early, ready to do stuff all day!

    We had a really good day today....we were able to visit some friends and spend some time with them and get our minds off the things here....it is good to get a "breath of fresh air" and have some "interaction" with others of the same "species" for a change.....;).....Gabbie pranced and danced for us when we came back....she loves to do figure 8s thru my legs when she is overly excited....:ep....no plans for the 4th, but may fire up the grill for some kind of pork....but, staying home...out of traffic, in the AC, and it won't be overcrowded.....:).....should be getting an increase in the chances of "relief" heading into the wknd, so hoping to keep making "babysteps" during the heat....we hope ALL have Safe travels if ya are gonna be on the road.....:fl
