Furniture and Curtains

We have furniture!

These are a few pieces from the bedroom set. The bedroom was prety spotless when it was delivered, but no more.

Lori's parents came to visit and helped us put in the other set of curtains that my mother made - here they are in the new dining room. The room is not really that red, but with the sun setting the photo is a bit over-exposed. We also have new dining room furniture.

The sideboard and it's contents, mostly weddign leftovers.

Nala also got some furniture for her sun room...she likes to sleep on the chairs!

Honey, I zapped the Sox...

So I was watching Wakefield pitch knuckle balls in a scoreless game when I hit the cable TV wire with a dog toy while playing fetch. Sparks flew and the circuit blew...turns out that the junction box near the cable TV wires is held in by what might generously be described as metal clips (tinfoil seems more accurate) and the impact of the Kong flying ring with the cable TV wires next door bent a clip into a screw terminal, shorting the whole circuit.

Half an hour later, after finding the problem, unwelding the clip from the screw terminal and bending it back into place, we turned everything back on to discover Cleveland up 7. Apparently the clip wasn't the only thing that suffered a melt-down. :-(
