{December 12, 2013}   A Murder in Pictures (Sponsored by Hamilton Beach)

Just joining us for the Hamilton Beach Toaster Chronicles? You might want to read these posts first:

* * * * * * * * * *


First things first. With two identical toasters in the house, I thought it crucial that I irrefutably identify the culprit …


… and give him one last crack at his job. (A final cigarette seemed so redundant.)


He did not disappoint. (This photo was taken outside where the smoke forced us to flee.)

* * * * * * * * * *

And then the murder. But how?

* * * * * * * * * *




Running down with the car?


Drowning/electrocution (Can you electrocute a toaster?)

* * * * * * * * * *

I decided on a more humane method.

* * * * * * * * * *


So I blindfolded the toaster …


… and myself …




Is this what you wanted, Hamilton Beach?


* * * * * * * * * *

It is finished.

And now we’ll all just have to go on with our lives and try to pretend nothing … ever  … happened.

(cue ominous music as camera slowly zooms out and screen fades to black)

This post was submitted for MamaKat’s writing prompt asking us to “talk about a problem you tackled this week.”

From the prosecutor: “Allow me to introduce exhibit A of this Murder trial…”

Yeah. I guess I shouldn’t have chronicled it all so publicly.

Are you kidding? I loved it! To be honest, I was waiting for the shotgun to come out.


If only we were a gun-toting family, Gene … :)

What about a nerf with red dye in the sponge?

You had to, or it would have killed you first.


I once destroyed a toaster with my bare hands because it looked at me funny.

Just kidding. It actually hit me first.

I missed the sleepy eye mask thing when you sent the pic. That made me laugh out loud. That…and Milo looking in the bath tub. :)

I love that Milo took such an interest in this project. Then again, he and the old toaster were very close.

You look like Sandra Bullock in that last photo! Basically any movie where she’s overacting…you just captured it with that expression.

I realize that your comment is not actually intended as a compliment but I’ve decided to take it that way. Because she’s pretty. :)

I hope you gave it a proper burial when all was done. I will miss the toaster chronicles, but life goes on I guess.

Toaster #1 sleeps with the fishes.
Leave the scissors, take the cannoli.

I have so many Godfather references…..

Well that’s ONE (or several) of taking care of your problem! Cheers to new toasters for Christmas you lucky girl!

Woah – that toaster is…toast.
