THAT DOES IT!

Today and tomorrow are the days I look forward to all year, my favorite week-end and then again, the first week-end in October--it's General Conference. Two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon, watching and listening to the prophet and apostles give us spiritual messages from Salt Lake City. I love it.

We had watched the morning session and Phil and I split up to get our errands done before the afternoon session. He went to Costco, I went to return our Red Box video and pick up a couple of things from the grocery store.

As I was driving the car locked itself. No big deal., it does that a lot. When I got to the grocery store I could not unlock the car. I struggled to push the door lock up. It wasn't budging. I was trapped!

I finally worked the passenger side lock up and bolted from the car. I left the car unlocked.

When I got back from the grocery store the car was locked. It locked and unlocked itself all the way home. I didn't know if I would be able to escape once I got home but I had my cell phone and I knew I could call Phil and he would come out and rescue me. I got out of the car without any difficulty but as I was going into the house I could hear the "zoop, zip, zoop, zip, zoop, zip" of the door locks, locking and unlocking themselves. I will probably find a dead battery the next time I drive.

But I'm NOT driving that Clown Car--which I think will have to be renamed to the Prisoner Car--until Phil removes the fuses that go to the door locks.

PS This photo is a reenactment in my driveway. I was much more panicky at the grocery store.

I LOVE the photo. It is very cute. Yes, please no more driving in the clown car until Phil gets those locks figured out. What if you need to get out in a hurry? Enjoy your conference. I will sleep extra late in celebration, cause that's what I always did for conference.

Cool shot of the re-enactment, your car sures sees to have a mind of its own

As for my shot today it was a closeup of a iron railing fence

Maybe you should film one of those Survivor series in your car.

OH, and don't you look cute, all in red. I love it.

As much as I love your company, I don't think I'll spend it riding in that car!

Now do you understand why I don't love that car? I used to think I liked to drive mine because we were using my gas and I didn't have to move the car seat. But really I didn't want to be locked in, or out.

That is, probably, also why I have never locked my cars, even after I had 2 of them broken in to. I just didn't know your car was to blame.

Once again, this may not be amusing if it happened to me, but, MAN, it is funny. And the picture! I'll be honest. I almost fell off my chair laughing. Thanks. I needed that.

What a great story! So glad you were able to get free! LOL! The picture is great!

I think maybe your car has been kicked off your followers list (like I seem to have been) and therefore wanted to get your attention. But I won't lock you anywhere. I'll just suggest a movie
