Untitled Post

While scanning the internetz for interesting new stories, I found this tidbit:

Would-be cleaners take note: A blowtorch is not a good substitute for a broom. Coweta County authorities said Galen Winchell set fire to his west Georgia home Wednesday as he cleaned cobwebs from exterior eaves with a blowtorch. Winchell noticed the blaze when he saw smoke pouring from the attic.

I have spent quite a few years explaining to the Crotchety Old Lady why I should not do household chores. I would like to thank Mr. Winchell for strengthening my case.

I'm not what one would call particularly handy around the house. If it were not for my sparkling personality and rapier wit, the Mrs. would have sent me packing long ago. That, plus I make a mean pasta dinner.

Can I have the recipe for that delicious looking pasta dinner?

LOL ! We had a bee-hive problem once upon a time at our bungalow in India. Most of the structure is made of wood.

And there was my aunt with a pole and a burning rag on the other end which she lit with kerosene - trying to burn the bees away and it was just in the nick of time people stopped her.

You think the blowtorch would work on dustbunnies any better? That could help me out a ton!

Donnie said...

I'm coming over for dinner. I love Spaghetti-O's...Beefaroni too!(Actually, they look like a pile of ringworms).

JD at I Do Things said...

Great. Now I'm hungry for Spaghettios (only the kind with mini hot dogs).

I often dust using my can of compressed air. Not quite as bad as a blowtorch, however.

@ Deb: It's an old family recipe. I don't know if I'm willing to let everyone in on it.

@ Jaffer: Exactly, or your aunt would have been on the news, too.

@ Chat: Won't dustbunnies scream as they get torched?

@ Don: Next you'll want my ravioli recipe.

@ JD: The Mrs. and I just decided to have an uneasy truce with the spiders and dust bunnies.

@ Shaxx: Ssshhhh. I don't want the Mrs. to know my secret recipe. She thinks I can cook.
