You rang?

I was concerned at 6:30 this morning when I heard my garage door opening in that I wasn't expecting anyone...

It turned out to be Dave who had driven over here on his way out of town to make sure that I was okay.

"Is everything alright?" he asked.

"Sure, are you ok?" I said, still drowsy from being awakened and surprised by his early morning visit.

Well, it turns out that Dave received a phone call from my house at 2:00 a.m. this morning. Now, unless I am doing things in my sleep, I knew that I didn't make any phone calls at 2:00 a.m. We checked "redial" on my bedroom phone and his number did not appear.

He left to go to work and the mystery remained.

Later on when I walked into my kitchen, I noticed that the phone was not in its charger...and, in fact wasn't anywhere to be seen. After searching the house, I walked outside (where I had spent some time yesterday afternoon) and called my home phone with my cell. Sure enough...I heard the phone ringing!

I finally located it out near the fence, covered in dirt and looking like it had been roughed up quite a bit.

I checked the redial on that phone and there it was: Dave's home phone number!!!!

The only thing that we can figure is that one of my backyard critters....probably a raccoon...made the now infamous call to Dave in the middle of the night! Since Dave was my last phone call received last night...the critter must have accidentally hit one of the redial buttons while playing around with the phone.

Mystery solved. : )

(One of my blogging friends just asked why it took Dave so long to check on me....and, I must say that my first reaction was how nice that was for him to be concerned...but, my second thought was that 6:30 might have been a little late if I was in trouble at 2 a.m.! Hmmmmm...we may have to talk about that when he gets back into town...or, at least work on his reaction time in case the raccoon ever calls him back!) : )

What a mystery. Very lucky you solved it. I though something like that only happened in the deep woods!

Forgot to ask...what did the animal want and why did it take Dave so long to make sure you were OK?
