"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

Our Nut Dispenser

We discovered that we have a nut dispenser in our freezer. Actually, we had a nut dispenser. It all started when I was defrosting our upright freezer to make room for some meat we had ordered. I was putting everything I could inside our freezer that is part of our refridgerator unit. I put things where ever I could...including on top of the ice in the ice maker.

After I defrosted the freezer I put everything back in the upright freezer...well, almost everything. Everything except one bag of nuts and dried fruit that that had been put atop the ice maker.

This ice maker is one of those that allows us to get the ice by pushing a lever on the door. It has a setting for crushing the ice as it comes out.

The forgotten bag was still there when my oldest son woke up the next morning and got himself a drink of ice water. He put water in his cup and then set the ice to come out crushed. As he started to take a drink from his cup he discovered something foreign in his drink.

"Mom, " he said, "there is something wrong with the ice maker. It is putting something funny in my drink."

It was then that I remembered the bag of nuts in the freezer. I spent the next half an hour cleaning bits of plastic, nuts and fruit from the coils of the ice maker.

NOTE to self: This would make a great April Fools joke....or maybe not.

it would make a very good oh boo moment!

reminds me of the time that my youngest sisters received "baby alives" for christmas - in the early seventies - and when they ran out of the food that came with them, decided to feed them some of our supper - SPAGHETTI!

needless to say they were pretty disgusted with what came out the dolls' behinds and gave them to my eldest daughter. talk about mold after a couple of weeks.

does your icemaker mix cookie dough?
