Lucy has completely recovered from her ordeal with the kitchen drawer.
I had to order new hardware because none of the big box stores had what I needed. The handles had to measure 3.5 inches from screw to screw. They had everything but. We settled on this. We needed 30.
I had Lucy out for a bit, came in, sent her ahead of me while I got garbage together on the back porch.
A loud crashing, skittering, and banging came from the kitchen.
I ran to the half door in time to see Lucy ducking and crashing into things while dragging a kitchen drawer along attached to her collar by the drawer pull.
I have ALWAYS hated these pulls.
The edges stick out, are sharp, and catch on everything!
Going to replace them with something like this:
After losing several precious to me pictures and some book chapters a few years back when my computer crashed I’ve become rather anal retentive about saving things to CDs and memory drives.
I have a 2.0G SanDisk that I’ve been using for a few years and it drives me crazy because it has some junk programs that came installed on it. Thanks but no thanks I only wanted storage for my books.
With it now back to school season, I found an on-sale-super-cheap 4.0G USB memory drive put out by Dane-Elec. I’m in love with it. It is all storage and no junk programs. At the price I paid for it I’m going back to buy more, many more.
I’ll use some strictly for pictures and keep others for my writing. I might even back up my entire computer again although there are a few programs I won’t bother with since I have them on disk. Heck, if get a couple of the 8G ones I can back up things to my heart’s content.
