Took the baskets off the doors and hung fresh branches tied with upholstery jute webbing, as I've done before.
I was looking through prior year photos and saw that last year, Bud decided to participate in the display as Nitzy did this year.
Repairman was here for hours trying to determine the cause of the weird actions of the range, nothing was making sense and diagnostics showed nothing. As he was leaving, he wanted to check the back of the stove just for the heck of it. There it was, black charred wires and melted plastic at the connection. Could have started a fire and we can't figure out why the breaker wasn't blown since this was happening at least 20 times a day on a 220 line. So, it will be repaired with new parts for a few hundred.
Did a little decorating, simple simple.
Stopped at Walmart for a few things and got my favorite spread for toast.
And for the brats, this little guy. You pull out a little tab to activate and this thing squeaks like a mouse. Missy is going nuts. They don't have to squeeze it, it makes the sound with almost every swat. But I feel bad when I hear it. The other day, I had to distract two brats from a little mole that they cornered. It was cold, but I ran outside and coaxed the little guy all the way across the yard into the woods. Moles are blind and the poor thing was squeaking and running all over. But he made it!
Have a great day.
Thanks for visiting.
