a day in the life...












Woke up, fell out of bed,
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
And looking up I noticed I was late
...
a day in the life... beatles

that was the beginning of my day...hung home for a few minutes with the wife...just about to get ready for a late arrival at work...went in to grab another cup... smoke everywhere... opened the doors and windows...ran down stairs and hit the circuit breaker to turn off the stove...ran back up stairs to still smokin stove more like bellowing smokin stove...called 911 8mins later the fire trucks arrived...they came in...Grabbed a co2 bottle...it wasn't charged...sooo...out they go to another truck to get another co2...this time it worked...smoke everywhere...

what happened...here is a tip, next time you decide to use the self cleaning stove option...Remember to remove all pans, especially pans with grease in them...the self cleaning option heats up to over 500 degrees enough to melt any pan and to start a honkin grease fire...

second story...

family has to evacuate the house soooo the dog has to go somewhere...my son has an idea, let's put him in a car and lock the only set of keys in the car...that's a fun game...2 hours later...AAA solves the problem...barking dog is released...

Guys show up while i'm in the middle (1hour) of attempting the ole coat hanger trick on car lock...we laugh, they help move now defunct 1 year old stove out to garage...

now I'm cleaned up ready to go...we buy a new stove on 18mos interest free...it will be delivered on thursday...

on the way home we stop by a burrito at qdoba shop...guy asks, how's your day been?, really, do you want know?...so i told him my sob story... cool thing... it touched the guy... he gave me a chicken burrito, free and for nothing!...

you know what?... small thing's done with great love can change a day...
