Where Is My Hubby?????

A couple of days ago my husband came home from running some errands. I was on the computer blogging and I heard him come in and then he went out again. I imagined he must be working on something or whatever. I didn't stop blogging to go see what he was up to until about thirty minutes later. I went through the house and he was no where to be found. His truck was in the driveway so I knew he hadn't left to go somewhere. He would have told me anyway if he was leaving again. I decided to let the dogs out for a few minutes and went out with them. I thought I heard someone hammering as I opened the patio door but then it stopped. Someone must be building something I thought. I sat down on one of our comfortable deck chairs to go through the mail when all of the sudden I heard a constant banging that didn't stop and thought my neighbor was working on another one of her projects. The dogs even went to the fence barking. Then I heard someone yelling my name over and over again and then it hit me like a ton of bricks. My hubby had locked himself in the shed. Sure enough I opened the door and there he was. The wind had blown the door shut and it can't be opened from the inside. He'd been stuck in there for about thrity minutes. 


I've always had a fear of that happening to me so I've always propped the door with something so it wouldn't.  He said he knew I was on the computer and it would be awhile before I'd start looking for him. He was thinking as a last resort to climb out the SMALL window in the back in order to get out if he was in there too much longer.  He would have had to go head first and that wouldn't be pretty. We both got a good laugh out of it but that was because he hadn't been in there too long. I guess he'll either fix the door to open from the inside or prop it open the next time.

It is never dull around our house.

that's just too funny!! One time Kurtis and I were traveling and we stopped to eat at a McDonald's in Kentucky and after I finished washing my hands in the restroom I pulled on the door handle to the door which opens into the inside and the handle came off in my hands. I just stood there thinking...How am I going to get out of this?? I had to wait until someone else decided to use the restroom because nobody paid any attention to me banging on the door and yelling!! wasn't too long....15 minutes or so. lol Crazy!!!

Yikes I get panicky in those types of situations. I'd go all the way and make the door open both ways. Props sometimes fall out of place...as in the been there done that category. Glad you rescued him!

Guess he had better put a double door knob on it now, lol Sure would hate to get caught in there if it was to hot or to cold!!!
