Yes, booked a new inspection, but no time until the 3rd of April and I´m not allowed to use my car from April the first. But things worked out well anyhow. It shoud have been much more expensive to crash the windscreen and get it fixed.

Today yearly vehicle inspection in the city of Landskrona. A little late so I hasten to arrange the safetybelts in the back seat. Close the door and what happens?The car is locked, no spare key and my only car key inside the car somewhere. Calling around, trying to get assistance, but no one can help me. The only advice I get is to smash the windscreen.

Finally I call a locksmith, who says that he´s not sure if he can mangage to open the door, but he finally arrives after four hours of waiting. And after 25 minutes of tinkering the problem is solved at a quite high sum.And the key? I had laid it in the tailgate for some strange reason.
Reminds me of the time I got out of the car and passed (threw) the key to my wife. She didn't see it happening and she locked her door (using the button). I did the same. So there was the key sitting on the floor between the two seats and two locked doors.

As the old saying has it "Ask a policeman" - so we did. He wandered over, took a handleful of keys out of his pocket. Stuck one in the lock - voilà! unlocked car. Didn't do a lot for my confidence in the security of Ford cars though!

A couple of months later, I returned the compliment to a couple of girls who had done much the same thing with their Vauxhall (General Motors to you). My Ford key did the trick!

Car locks have improved since the 1980s! (Thank goodness)

Default Where are you, ColaJim?

Now all we need is ColaJim to retell the fishing trip story about locking his keys in the truck of his car . . . Jim? Where are you?!

90 this morning. Higher than normal. Woke coughing a couple times in the night and had slight sore throat when I got up. Had considerably less carbs yesterday (21 vs 30-39), a little less exercise and didn't have my usual bed time snack. Wonder which or if all are the cause.

Took some Airborne as soon as I got up, that usually knocks a cold if I take it soon enough. Used to take EmergenC frequently, but it has 6 carbs in a serving....nowadays, that is way too much for me. Airborne is less than 1 so I count it as .5.

The little bit of blue sky I saw yesterday is gone...its raining like crazy! I at least got my bbq'ing done yesterday...just finished as the rain came.

And that reminds me of a story I read in a forum a few years ago about a UK model (forgot which one) from back in the sixties that had only 6 different keys. So if you locked your keys in the car, you just stopped every car of the same model that passed and asked the driver to try the keys. Apparently everyone knew about the keys, so there was never any difficulty getting drivers to stop and help.

Much scarier is a story told by a coworker a few months ago about the keys for the houses in a new development here, where the principal builder used only five! different locks for the 100 or so houses he built there... The coworker was one of those affected.

5.2 today. I was an eating machine yesterday for some reason, constantly hungry in spite of eating few carbs. Even did the old standing in front of the open fridge looking for something to eat trick that I'd long since stopped after going LCHF. I think it's the season change setting off some hormones. The shadows are longer, the afternoon light has that gorgeous golden hue and the mornings are cooler. Lovely time of year. Pity we don't get the autumn colours.

Not sure how it translates to the northern hemisphere, but I was the same way this morning. Had a nice bowl of my almond flour cereal, but in another hour I was having stuffed celery, coupla cheese sticks, and soon after that it was guacamole on Jeanne's dorito chips. In fact, I think I can't even REMEMBER everything I ate before noon - it seemed like I was chewing something every time I turned around. Mercy save us!
