'Arcing Breaker'<-You Say That Like It's a *Bad* Thing.

When our upstairs lights started flickering, Mr. Man took immediate action, temporarily shutting off the upstairs lights and outlets. Then we both sat in the dark like Ma and Pa Ingalls and said a little prayer to the god of fire for sparing us. Then Mr. Man played an old timey tune on his fiddle while I whittled a corn cob dolly.
Says Mr. Man: "To all those amateur electricians out there, just because the lights turn on when you connect a few random wires, doesn't mean your house won't burn down!" Amen brother.

So, once again Beaulieu Electric to the rescue. Thanks Paul! And by the way Paul? Nice mustache.

I didn't understand much of what Paul said he found. But whatever he said? He was really excited about it. It mostly sounded like this: " So your mer mer blah blah was wha wher. And now your blah blah blah is mer mer mer." I don't speak 'electric'. The one thing Paul said that  I *did* understand? "And then I found this arcing breaker."

The joys of old home ownership.


  1. Well, that's just mer mer fiutt!! LOL

  2. Yikes. Glad nothing worse happened!

    Don't tell my arc, my arcing breaking arc...

    YES I THREW DOWN A BILLY RAY CYRUS JOKE. Feel free to ostracize me for the rest of time. I deserve it.


Your comments give me a thrill. Thank you.
