Safe Cracking [Oct. 27th, 2017|11:36 am]
Tony Grist
 My father left behind a portable, fireproof safe- and no word as to where he'd hidden the key. We've been searching for it over the past week and it's amazing how many keys we have and how few of them open anything we still own.  In the end I emailed the manufacturers and they told me they'd want a notarised document to prove I was the safe's legitimate owner before they'd sell me a key- so I decided to open it with a axe. It was surprisingly easy. A couple of taps and the lock no longer held. 

Did it contain bundles of crisp banknotes? Actually no. It contained my father's passport, vaccination certificates for a trip he took to Aden in 1958, his birth and baptism certificates, his postwar ID card and other things of that sort. Ah well....

Ahhh...no hidden inheritance. Oh well. Imagining is half the fun. Was it a safe without a combination lock?

It was just a big plastic thing with a key lock.

We had a similar situation when Mom passed. There was a safe in her closet- the brother is pretty good at picking locks, but he couldn't pick that one. So, maybe not an axe...anyway, it did NOT contain the title for her car, which they were hoping to find. It did contain the deed for the house, and the indication that the mortgage was paid.

So that was a kind of treasure trove.

The deed is interesting to read...written a long time ago as those things go.

It's interesting to see what people valued highly in different times of the century.

All these things my father wanted to keep especially safe- and now most of them are just waste paper.

Hm... In bureacratic Europe these days I'm not so sure about that.
