Awww - sorry to hear (on both fronts - freezer should never be empty).
I haven't failed until I quit.

Back to the health topic, so far I've avoided what pretty well everyone else became infected with.
We're down to one bed so I made my wife sleep on the couch for the past two nights.
It's working, I'm healthy. :up:

She's staying on the couch until we move.
If not, I'll fake it, sit and watch her pack up the rest of the house. :biggrin:

Good plan! You can't do it right anyway so why try.

Did you check in the car?

That's where my daughter always leaves hers. (That's how it got stolen) :200:

Over packaging is getting out of hand. Received a shipment from Amazon last evening - just got around to opening this huge box that was left on my deck.

Ok - carton contained 4 items - 1 measured 15-1/4" x 3-7/8" x 1-5/8", 1 measured 4-3/4" x 4-3/4" x 1-5/8" and the other 2 measured 7" x 3-3/8" x 3/4".

One would think the carton they were shipped in would be the right size, right? Wrong! Frigging carton measured 40-1/4" x 11" x 3-3/4". Only good thing is I now have a good size carton for all the other boxes that will be broken down for recycling.

I know, eh! Can you imagine the extra cost?

I ordered a fuse for my dishwasher. The actual parts box was 1 inch by 1 inch by 4.

The Amazon box was huge.
