Millie & Mom Monday

Yesterday, when Mom turned on the TV, she heard a big SNAP and a POP noise. Then we both heard static, and the UPS started beeping. The TV did not turn on, and started to smell something stinky.

 Mom turned the TV OFF right away, and unplugged it.  I smelled a little of that electrical burning smell. The TV was dead.

 But not to worry. Mom has had three TV's.
 She put the TV from the sewing studio in the living room.


She moved the TV in the office into the sewing room.

That funny snapping noise kinda freaked me out. 
 Are you confused yet? Because I sure am.

Well, Millie - don't you make any funny little snapping noises, will you? Because your mom doesn't have any spare Millies scattered about the house.

We don't like it when things go dead like that either Millie. Thank goodness your Mom had some spare ones.

My humans are sort of wishing their tv would do that and become dead, because it is an old fashioned type, and they would like to have a flat screen one instead, but they doing believe in discarding a tv that still works fine! Peeps are funny sometimes.

Those funny snapping sounds and bad smells are why my mom won't leave the TV on for me when she goes out. She says I can just sleep. Jack the Wheaten

Sorry to hear about the broken TV, Millie - but don't worry ( about being confused) your Mom has it all sorted! (Just as well the big tennis matches are over - for the time being anyway,)

Ohh, that isn't good. Snap, crackle and pop should only be in the cereal bowl.

Damn - nothing is designed to last forever nowdays. That is good that mom caught it before there was a fire or any damage and at least she has spare tvs sitting around.

Smooches
