Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Did You Know?

That if the lid comes off when you're spinning salad.....lettuce goes everywhere?


In the sink....in the floor....on the counter....on the windowsill....in your hair....on top of the stove vent....                  Oh my.

I take it you are writing from experience! What a mess!!!!

Marge said...

I have the exact lettuce spinner that you have pictured here. Thanks for the warning!

Auntie Em said...

I think that's where the term "tossed salad" really comes from.

Sheila said...

Thanks for todays smile , I know you were probably not smiling when you had to clean it up but I can't help but visualize that lettuce flying all over the place :-)

Floss said...

Thanks for the laugh.

Yes - I laughed so hard my furries came to see what was wrong!

nanny said...

How funny.....
I have the manual kind that stops spinning when you stop turning it...

I bought my daughter one for Christmas a couple of years ago and she said it intimidated her/ha

Di said...

That's the funniest thing I've read today, Marlene. I can just imagine it!

Lois Evensen said...

I'll make a note of it! :))) We normally don't spin the salad so I haven't had that experience.

Quilt n Queen said...

You are too funny....where is the picture of you with lettuce in your hair??? That would be a video to send to the 'Americas Funniest Videos'...

Carol said...

Ma is laughing so hard she is gasping with her smoker's cough.

Michele said...

Hehehe. I'll remember NOT to do that.

Good thing I read this after dinner, or I might have been worried. Funny thing is I was just telling the blacksmith tonight how much I love my salad spinner!
By the way I beat you look green in garden green!

that's a good one! Fore warned is fore armed. You could hit a lot in a kitchen the size of mine.

Gail said...

First I need to apologize for laughing so loudly. This is a wonderful discovery and will probably bring about extensive labeling of the product. DO NOT OPEN While OPERATING. I wish we had pictures!!!

Linda said...

Then it's a good thing I don't have one, isn't it? Lettuce in my do just would not do!

Needled Mom said...

Yes....I know!!!

Pokey said...

Too funny, I'm grinning at your expense-sorry!

Vivian said...

Oh my. Thanks for the warning. That is the exact model I have.

Josie McRazie said...

I do not have one of these because if it were sitting on my countoer... I would get nothing done! These are play toys for me! :)

Bonny said...

Ooops, a hard lesson learned :)

Truffle queen said...

UGH!!! Hey did you ever hear of spinning a LOT of lettuce in the washing machine?! Yep - a friend of mine would rinse a ton of lettuce (for a BIG crowd) - put it in a CLEAN pillowcase - and put it on the spin cycle! She said it worked like a charm! Now the problem is - what do you do if you have a front load washer? hmmmm
Have a great day - keep on spinnin'
