Here's my dilemma . . . It's my daughters trunk that her father left to her. Along with it he left her the paperwork and a set of keys. The paperwork is inside and the keys are for a different trunk! It's filled with books and we can't move it! Please help!
Calling on the trunk experts to tell us how to get it open without damaging it?
Thank you. AND once in I'll post a pic of the info the original owners left with age, where it came from etc...thanks in advance.
Update #2~And the story continues. (I thought I put the first update here but apparently, I only mentioned it in the title of this post, which I just changed, It said "the key will be here tomorrow")
So, sweet George sends me the key. Did you think I was going to tell you I have photos??? Nope, things are NEVER that simple for me, and yes I am laughing now, but I wasn't when things kicked into high gear!
I had forgotten when I first contacted George, it was thru my friends eBay account, so when I ordered the key, I forgot to remind George to send it to my address. I waited for 3 or 4 days after the delivery date was passed by, George is a great guy and I didn't want to ask him where my key is, right?!? Then I remembered the account address to my friends, I asked him if the key was delivered. Oooo, that's what the key was for. Mind you, he went with me when I got the first set of keys AND I told him the day I ordered the new key, so I respectfully will not repeat the words that came flying out of my mouth! All I CAN say here is that it's a good thing I didn't have the rifle that fortapachie just listed!!! Yes, I did go a bit ballistic.
My friend did finally find the key but at that point, it was too late. My daughter had to be out of her (upstairs) place by March 31 and the trunk was loaded with books so she had to break into it -and without telling me that- but she said she was very careful and there's not a lot of damage. I still don't know for sure what that means since I was unable to get down there to help her. I just realized something...she didn't send it here because she did do some damage, that silly girl must have been scared to show it to me. lol She really does know better and knows I would have shrugged my shoulders and said, "well, ya gotta do what ya gotta do".
What can I say? Ahhh ha ha, I know where that trunk is and I'm going to go there and see what she's done!!! I promise I'll get photos of it, damage to the lock included...I hope it's just to the lock. How sad is this? I swear, I just couldn't figure out why she didn't want the trunk here with her other stuff! Duh!
To be continued!
P.S. I miss ya all!!!
