    trust me, NOLA…plenty of choice words escaped my lips when the camera wasn’t rolling.

    Womp…I thought we had a new Monkbot there for a minute. 😉 “Wom”

    Rock on, Shelley! Don’t you just feel like you can accomplish anything when you do something like that? I know I did last year when I installed digital programmable thermostats. You need to give yourself the prize of the day today!

    Woo, Hoo !! Congrats Shelley. I am properly impressed — thanks for sharing. Maybe I will finally tackle the faulty dimmer switch I have in the foyer…

    Shelley! You are soooo cute! Look at you — fixin’ your oven. I am very impressed. And videotaping yourself without catching your hair on fire or something. And you turned off your own power! I am skeered of electricity — that would be too much for me. I once had an electric stove that was down to one burner by the time I got it fixed. And you actually bake! Wowzers. Multi-talented indeed.

    (cute house, by the way)

    Loved it.

    “AHH! It’s working!!
    So… I fixed my stove?”

    You are the cutest thing evah, shelley. And the sweetest: cinnamon rolls for the co-workers. Not even Pam does that.

    Good on ya.

  9. shelley Says:

    digital programmable thermostats…faulty dimmer switch?

    seriously, girls…those sound WAY MORE challenging!

    Dr. Bob…I couldn’t help but picture you cooking an entire Thanksgiving dinner on one burner. LOL.

    Thanks all y’all for the warm fuzzies.

    What a guy!!!! 🙂 Patrickkadiddlehopper was “bezay” lifting weights at his first evah power lifting event!!! And as Coop sezs “we didn’t come in first BUT we didn’t come in last!” I am a lucky Hosea with gifted youngins-fixin stoves, lifting weights and being robust redheads doing roustabout ads for the “Grammy’s” AND robust redheads in Hawaii upgrading with a new WEAPON 🙂 Proud mama I am:)

  12. shelley Says:

    Yikes…compared to my power-lifting, weapon-upgrading, Grammy-advertising brothers…I feel a little unacomplished.

  13. suzi-q Says:

    Honey, unaccomplished you ain’t, I have never fixed a stove in my entire life! Matter of fact I have never had to turn off or ON the power to a house. Wouldn’t know where to begin. I would have been fried, died and laid to the side. Sizzle, sizzle POP:) And that would not be in a good way.
