I did something pretty dumb this morning. Got up nice and early then poked around online a while. I decided that we should go out to the park before it got too hot so we went and all was good. I decided to drive over to my dad's house but drove up to see no cars there. My dad told me last night that they were going to go down to his new place outside of town to look around at where they'd started framing his house. So, I figured they had gone out to look at the new house. Since I had the dogs with me I decided I could wear them out good at the new house and take them to the lake after I walk around and look. So we drove out of town to his new place, which is 40 acres. I drove up and the gate was open so I figured they must be back by the house or back with the horses. I drove in and a big truck came driving out the opposite way. I got by the house and no one was there. I drove up to the pasture and no one was there except for the horses. So.... I drove back down to the gate and realized I was locked in. I tried the lock and tried to pick it and no avail. The dogs were having a blast and I started panicking because I realized my phone was not with me. I did have some pringles and oreos in the car from vacation and a cooler with a couple bottles of water and coke in it so I figured that I could survive until either another truck came or they came to check the horses. I ended up parking in the shade with the windows down and waiting for a while, then gave up, jumped the fence, and hiked over to the neighbors to borrow a phone. It was one of my less than stellar moments.
