Well, last night was fun. NOT! Everything was going great. I had a good day at work (even got taken out for lunch), and then I came home and got laundry and vacuuming done and made a wonderful supper. I was looking forward to an evening in front of the TV watching my favourite shows.
While getting some ingredients for supper out of the fridge I realized that it was not overly cold inside. In fact, I couldn’t even hear the compressor come on after the door had been open for a few minutes. When Mike got home, he took a look, but it was pretty obvious that our fridge was dead, and we had to move the contents to our big freezer and coolers out in the garage. If I look at the bright side, at least the temperature is still cool enough outside that the food won’t spoil.
So, it looks like we are shopping for a new fridge this weekend, and that after I just had to order 4 new tires for my car. Grrrrrr!!! Of course, we could call in a repairman, but when you look at the age of the fridge and the hourly amount that repairmen charge, it just doesn’t seem worth it. Needless to say, the mystery photo was the last thing on my mind last night, but I still managed to come through and keep my record of never missing a week in tact. Now it’s your job to make me laugh so I can forget about my fridge woes. Ok, ready, set, go….
Well, it’s obviously bird’s feathers, but which bird I wonder. I’m not familiar with your birds so can’t guess. A duck?
Looks like some mallard feathers to me. Drake(male) by the looks of things.
It’s a feather on top of an Easter Parade hat!
Well, that’s a very unique answer. Welcome to the Loonybin :).
I’d like to suggest that they are the feathers of a swan of woe but they are more likely to belong to your beloved Canada Goose. I fear they are too large to belong to a loon.
Today is sad for me too, it is Mrs BC’s last day at her old job and we are still no closer to finalising the details of the sale of our old home meaning that she will be moving West without me and the boys for at least the next couple of weeks.
Oh no, that is very sad :(. I hope everything comes together for you very soon! TBM and I have both been having bad weeks, and we’ve decided to go drinking. Do you want to come drown your sorrows with us?
Drink sounds good to me
Ok, you’re in :).
me four, me four, I wanna come drinking too
So sorry to hear about the fridge. I’m on my way over the eat all the ice cream. And then we, including Bunny and anyone who wants to join, can go drinking. What a crappy week for most of us.
I like the way you think :). We have to be positive though don’t we? It can only get better right?
I know it’s the feather that got stuck in the compressor that made the fridge stop working. Sorry to hear about your fridge woes. it’s never fun to have to go shopping for something you never planned for. In any case have a great weekend.
You actually made me chuckle with the feather in the compressor idea :). Thanks Edith – I needed that! You have a great weekend too.
these are your angel wings that you only take off to sleep–otherwise they are folded inconspicuously under you shoulder blades and unfurl at the mention of chocolate and books and Mikey
Ooooh, if so, my wings are very pretty :). Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have wings so that in times of trouble we could just take flight and get away from it all. Instead, I will just have to lose myself in a book at lunchtime. That always makes me feel better :).
books are a different kind of magic!
Ohh no, sorry to hear about your fridge drama! It’s so inconvenient and annoying when things like that happen.
I think this pic is a feather from a dodo bird and that you’ve gone prehistoric period on us. You probably got the idea from lamenting about your fridge and what it would be like to live in pre-fridge times. 😉
Bah ha ha!! That’s funny, and you made me smile. Thank you :). I don’t think I really want to live pre-fridge time, but it would just be nice if appliances were made well like they used to be when they would last for 20+ years. When you think about it, everything we buy nowadays is just downright crap!!
No problem. 🙂
I wouldn’t want to live in pre-fridge times either! Agreed about how they make things these days, quality has gone down hill, nothing lasts as long.
Don’t look now I think your pillow might have explode when the fridge pack up…
Oh, I guess I took out my frustrations on the pillow too violently LOL!
Hmm…Feather attached to a bird obviously.
It’s the remnants of a chocolate chicken and blue foil wrapper. Well you get Easter Eggs, why not go for the source or sauce even.
My fridge is 30 years old you know, mwoha Mind you, there’s things in the back of it that defy scientific analysis. 🙂
Wow, that sure lasted a long time. If you bought one now, you would be lucky if it lasted 10 years!
It’s a feather! I don’t know what the background stuff is, but it looks like a collection of keepsakes, very pretty!
It may be a feather or did you just wash your hair? Ahhhh – just aiming for a giggle. You need a reprieve from things breaking down around you. 🙂
Yes, I do 🙂
Ish nuffin to get ina flap about. mwoha. Av a bear, there’sh a good chapette ➡ 🐻
Good morning everyone :). You are all so smart! I think everyone figured out that it was some type of a feather, and it is in fact a closeup of the side of a mallard duck. Great job everyone! I’m off to look up reviews on fridges and stoves and will probably be picking them up today. You see, things are looking up! Have a great weekend :).
So….have you stocked the fridge with chocolate of any sort???
There’s triple chocolate icecream in the freezer, and I think I might have to eat it all to get over how much we spent on a new fridge and stove LOL!! They are pretty though :).
Well at least they’re pretty!! The ice cream MUST be eaten!!
Okey dokey. Whatever you say boss :).
When I bought my previous house in 1986, it came with an old but quite serviceable refrigerator that was of an avocado color (which might let me estimate its age if I cared to do some research). I had to get it repaired once, but it was still working when we left it behind at the time we bought our current house, which will be 10 years ago next week. For all I know, it’s still running in the old house.
That doesn’t surprise me at all. Nothing is made now like it used to be and nothing lasts anymore. No wonder the landfills are getting so filled up!
