Another episode of 'Dorks R Us'

Thursday morning I got home from work and took Brownie for a walk. When I got home, I realized that I had locked myself out of the house!

Tony was gone to work, and April was sound asleep. After ringing the doorbell and calling the house phone (I had my cell).......I said 'oh, darn, I'm not not going to wake April up!"

Decided to put Brownie over the fence (our gates are locked from the inside) to see if She could wake April up. Our fence is about a foot higher than my head. Fortunately, there was a chair that I'd asked Tony to take to the dump, that was still out by the trashcans.

So, I climb on the chair and lean way over the fence and drop Brownie to the ground.....where she just stands and looks at me with a 'what in the world are you doing?' expression on her face.

I'm saying "Brownie....go get April!" (kind of like "Lassie...get Timmy!" huh? :)

Brownie continues to look at me.

Finally, I say "aw, heck....I'm gonna have to climb the fence,aren't I?" (this is the part of the story where, when I told Tony about it afterwards, he was shouting with laughter and saying "I'd sure have liked to have seen That!"

I climb over the fence, managing to knock off one of the tops of a fence post while doing so, and Then Brownie starts running around to the back door! Figures :)

and that's the latest in the 'dork family adventures' :)
