Conversation in our Kitchen

Sunday Conversation

Dylan: "Huh. Well, that's not good. I think I just blew up the refrigerator."

Me: "..."


Dylan: "I changed the light bulb. Now everything is good again. But it's kind of high wattage."

Tigger: "WOW! Heaven is in our refrigerator!"

Dylan: "Okay, you can open the door, but don't look directly INTO the refrigerator."

I'm thinking of rigging up some kind of heavenly music that goes on every time the door is opened. Or maybe the refrigerator could fill in for my "happy light".


Some of you have taken stabs at where Hell is from my last post. Apparently, it was Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico. And those were the souvenir slides, which did not age nearly as well as all the ones that my family took.

Others have asked about converting slides to digital. I have emailed those of you whose email addresses I had directly, but I thought I'd put a little plug in for anyone else who is interested.

I'm using the Plustek OpticFilm 7300 slide/film scanner. I think it's a fabulous scanner and does a lovely job. It's also small and compact. Be aware though that it takes about 2-3 minutes per slide and you have to manually change the slides, so it's a long project if you have a lot of slides. I've made it through about 300 slides in the past week.

And Grandma, if you ever come across the slides that you know are around somewhere, I promise I will scan them in and give you copies. And I will not make fun of them on my blog. I reserve the right to make fun of people who do not read my blog only.


  1. Wow that fridge is heavenly! Is it filled with chocolate too?

  2. new meaning to "go towards the light"

  3. Now I'm thinking of that scene in Ghostbusters where she sees the "nice doggie" for the first time...

  4. That is one bright fridge you got there! I saw you on LOAD, I'm glad you're doing again. I wish the board was more user friendly like it was last year.

  5. It might also be useful for interrogations.

  6. A fridge like that should only be filled with chocolate and wine.

    It is only right.

  7. I'm still laughing about "heaven is in our fridge!!"

    hahaha do not look into the light........

  8. Heehee! Make sure to don a pair of OSHA-approved safety sunglasses before opening the fridge :-)

    And Carlsbad Caverns, hm? Neat!


Comments are much appreciated! I love to hear the nice and clever things you have to say.
