A Moment of Silence Please

For our waffle iron. It gave up the ghost this morning. Right in the middle of making a waffle. It gave it's best to the very end. It went into the garbage with a belly full of batter so it will be well fed on it's journey to the lands where it's waffle iron ancestors await it.

I'd also like to take a moment of silence for the many spiders that have lost their lives in our home this past month. I don't know if you have this problem in you home but our home has been inundated with those little yellow house spiders. Drives me crazy. So here's to those spiders that have gone on to spider heaven. May there be many insects there and your webs be full.

You gave two great eulogies right there Shanna. May the waffle iron and the spiders rest in peace.

Spiders and waffle irons. Maybe you should hang on to the waffle iron so that you have something to squish the spiders with...

Hilarious! I, too, have worn out a waffle iron, and it was a sad day indeed...Here's to better days with a new one.

And, for the spiders, try HOME DEFENSE, it works like a charm. Particularly for the little yellow house spiders that seem to haunt homes in PG.

I weep openly. Sorry for your loss.

I think I would cry if my waffle maker broke. It is my favorite appliance. Especially with my rockin' recipe. :)
