Then it began making a howling continuous alarm beep. Then about 100 yards into the trip I noticed the regular foot brakes DON'T WORK. I have no braking. Luckily the 300 yard trip back to my house is *slightly* uphill. I just gave it weak gas and crawled home, then let gravity stop at the curb in front of my house.

Help!?
Glad everything turned out well. Just wanted to highlight something for all of us 4th Gen owners to be aware of: what you experienced was a brake failure warning as described in the owner's manual. So if your parking brake isn't on but the light is, and you hear a continuous beep or buzzer, chances are you have no brakes.

Have to love Toyota's irony in directing the driver to "stop immediately" in the case of a brake failure. LOL

This is super disconcerting when it happens, but that alarm is there for good reason. Glad it didn't cause any injury or property damage and you were able to get it fixed.
