A “Hot” Time!!!

So, there we were, on Wednesday night, just relaxing after dinner and engrossed in a movie. Johnnie was sitting in a chair with a heating pad on her feet. Steve was stretched out on the couch across from her when, out of the corner of his eye, something got his attention.

It was smoke.

He calmly, but loudly, said “Honey, what’s going on?”

Johnnie looked down and saw smoke engulfing her feet. As that registered in her head, a flame shot up. She quickly flipped the heating pad smothering the flame. It took a few minutes for the smoke to dissipate but took us a lot longer to calm down.

Heating pad remnants sitting in our sink after a good soaking.

Thank goodness it wasn’t at Johnnie’s feet in bed!

Thursday afternoon, Johnnie was debriefed on the previous night’s adventure during a conversation with Jon Hansen on WGN radio.

If you’d like to hear a podcast of that conversation, just click on this link.

As for us, well, along with our Christmas shopping, now we’re planning on spending a little time looking for a good old fashioned red hot water bottle!!

Stay safe … REALLY!

Steve & Johnnie

    Thank heavens you are ok! I have been listening to all of your older podcasts which bring back such fond memories especially the ones with Nick. Currently I am deactivated from FB, just got to be too much. I do get your newsletter but is there any other site I can go to for current news from you. Love your recipes Johnnie as my husband too has trouble with gluten. Thank you for bringing me some comfort and joy during this holiday season. Ps Steve…I’m also a guitar girl, got a new mini Taylor as a gift, just wish I was a better player to do it justice! Stay well.
