Great story- Have you gotten it yet? - I would be calling that nice lady everyday and explain to her what over night meant. Get a refund on the shipping.
I agree must submit to a magazine etc. Taste of home has alot of these kind of stories. Send it in to the show The Chew.

I'm that guy that appreciates a funny story or yarn. 99 time out of a hundred, you'll get me to crack sideways smile, and a chuckle. I don't laugh easily, and never at crude, or shock humor. Janet, you made me laugh out loud. I so love laughing out loud. It cleanses me, and reminds me that in spite of all that's wrong with the world, good people can make it right.

That story was awe inspiring, and fun to read. Thanks.

Well, one thing was right. You will have a story in years to come to retell over and over. And you have PF spitting at Shrek.

Happy cooking Janet. Tell hubby he can't use it until he reads the manual front to back. Then when you have a question, you can make him feel good and ask his advice.

P.S. Don't forget to thank the nice lady at WS.

After making cranberry relish in the blender a few times, with the top flying off and the kitchen getting all red, I started grinding it with a hand blender. Cheap and does the job without too much mess.
