Where the Broken Things Go

It's Me, It's Me, It's Ernest T!

It’s Me, It’s Me, It’s Ernest T!

Do you remember Ernest T. Bass from the old Andy Griffith Show?  Well, I broke his arm over the weekend.  I’m kind of upset about it, but not too much as I’m pretty sure Bob can fix it.  You see, when I break something all I have to do is put it on Bob’s desk and, voila, it’s back in working order.  That is why it was important for him to have a large desk.

Some items that have been left on Bob’s desk include my computer, a Barbie ornament with an arm that was snapped off, a lamp, my grandson’s friction activated school bus, a sound machine, Brio train tracks and bridges, a hair clip, a board book with hidden things under flaps, a talking watch, a video camera and a necklace with a broken clasp.  With a repair success rate of about 95 percent, I think there’s a good chance that Ernest T will be as good as new.

So, when Bob gets home from work today he will find Ernest T laying on the desk waiting for him.  Oh, did I mention that Ernest T is a refrigerator magnet?  That played into my being rather calm about the incident, though I was a little sad as I just bought it over the weekend when we visited Mount Airy, North Carolina, the home of Andy Griffith and the town that inspired Mayberry.
