Oh by the way, folks,
Today we celebrate the birthday of Henry J. Heinz, born in 1844. He founded the company that manufactured and popularized the modern version of ketchup.
Yesterday's chiroquacker knee-jerk, again as usual, produced no results.
Then we received delivery of a new living-room rug. Yawn. Everybody buys rugs from time to time.
Then we watched the highway deptment put up a buncha No Parking signs and Don't Drive Hammered Or You're Gonna Get Nailed signs and such like in preparation for Patuxent River Appreciation Days which is gonna be today and tomorrow.
And it looks like one of the Don't Drive Hammered Or You're Gonna Get Nailed signs got knocked over by a drunk driver about ten minutes after they put it up.
Then the appliance repair person came to fix both the dishwasher and the stove. The dishwasher needs some exotic high-tech tronic part. The stove needs a new heating element for the lower oven and a new knob for one of the stove-top heaters and two exotic high-tech tronic parts. So all that stuff got ordered and the repair person's gonna come back when the parts come in.
Until then we'll just wash dishes by hand the way they did it back in the Stone Age, and we've still got the upper oven and three stove-top heaters and the microwave oven and the Mr Coffee machine and the toaster and the bread maker and the electric wok and the electric fry-pan and the Farberware grill and the waffle iron and three crock-pots and the rice boiler.
So I suppose we'll stave off starvation somehow or t'nother.
Happy Staving Off Starvation!
