Household Hint

Now what could that gadget be? If you say backscratcher, you're right. What do I use it for? If you say to scratch my back,you would not be right.

Because of my handicap, it is very difficult for me to bend down and get clothes out of the back of my front-loading clothes dryer. In fact, I fell down one time trying to reach something, and had to call the fire department to come pick me up.

Ah, now you are getting the idea! Yes, I do use the backscratcher to retrieve items I cannot otherwise reach. That little dot you see near the teeth is a hole by which I hang it up when not in use. Feel free to be a copycat.

Humor time:

  1. Heh. We weren't yet 40 when there was some museum of technology that had one of those monster discs, a couple of feet across, for running mainframe computers. My hubby goes, I worked on those!

    And it was in a museum already!

  2. That's a useful gadget. Maybe Mr. Obama's team of gift-pickers should consider it instead of iPods and DVDs.
