    I fiddled around with my coffee pot for at least five minutes trying to figure out why it didn't work. Then I decided to put water in it!

    I find more of these type of things happening much more often than they use to. Just a different way to live. It won't get any better so we must just laugh about it all.

    Seems like we have all been there at one time or another. Years ago I turned on the burner with my coffee pot empty and not realizing it until I smelled something......the bottom burned out of it and had to replace the burner. :hunf:

    I was rather thankful that I went out to check. The hotplate was heated up.

    We all have those moments...

    One day the power was out and I knew I couldn't watch tv, so I went downstairs and set in front of my sewing machine trying to figure out why it wouldn't turn on....duh! If the power is off on the first floor chances are darn good it's off in the basement also.
