Keys, keys and more keys please. We have had keys for centuries. So many types and so many kinds a keyless world would lose our finds.
Lets face it. As much as some would think technology will eliminate things like keys, I would disagree and say we still need them for quite some time yet. Consider the fact that keys have been around for a few thousand years. Also consider that keys have been made of almost anything malleable from wood, steel, aluminum, brass, copper, tin, stone, cast iron, plastic, rope, gold, silver, the list goes on. It is endless when you think about it so it is very well possible to see keys in the future made from other sources such as electricity, gasses, force, quantum particles, cells, light. Who knows. Keys have been around us for so long we just take them for granted.
Looking back at this month the theme for me has been all about keys. The first phone call of the month was a key enquiry. An odd double side mailbox key. Next I got approval to install a key lock on a safe. Then off to deal with a master key issue. This month also dealt with high security keys, picking up key blanks and extracting broken keys.
Other keys include donkeys, monkeys, turkeys, whiskey, hockey, jockey, turnkey, lackey, mickey, hickey, flunkey, bunkey, punkey, pokey, pinkey, doohickey, honkey, malarkey, cockey, hokey. There is also the Black Keys, Alicia Keyes, Florida Keys, typewriter keys, and musical keys.
The locksmith trade alone has thier fair share. Spline keys, chuck keys, submaster keys, change keys, code keys, bump keys, allen keys, bit keys, tubular keys, high security keys, flat keys, master keys and so many more.
Need a key? Give a locksmith a call. Be sure keep it secure.
