Oh dear! Right now my fridge has everything pushed to the back as far as it will go. The top shelf is almost empty. Only very tall items are there.

The reason for the push back? I went shopping yesterday. Spike being who he is, took a friend of the family that we all call Ditzy, (with good reason) along so she could do her shopping also. Spike and I have shopping down to a science. Having Ditzy along prolonged the trip by an extra hour. We are usually in and out in 45 minutes. I came home absolutely exhausted. He brought my groceries up in the large shopping cart that we have on the property. He usually puts away all my groceries. Not this time. Fortunately Pirate was here and he did it. The reason for everything being pushed back on the top shelf is that the meats get tossed in there and later I break them down. I never got around to buying my meats because of Ditzy. She kept tracking me down and asking me if Spike would approve of what she was buying. She was totally broke and he was lending her about $50 on his food stamps. No, he will not approve of the flowers, the big chocolate cake, the cute little cookies, the two packages of tomatoes, (a twofer) put one back, four bottles of soda. Now she had to take the time to put back all the stuff that I told her Spike would not care to pay for. As a result I never made it to the meat department. Spike and I had a little talk yesterday. I told him I would rather go to Shaw's alone and pay higher prices than go through that ever again. He agreed. So tomorrow after I break them down and put all the meats away, my fridge will be back to normal. Then I might consider taking a picture. And one of the freezer.

This is a completely unedited frig, no rearranging.
I have to admit to wiping the orange juice spill off the door sill before snapping a pic - you are very brave ;)

Batteries charged.

Here's the outside. And I was shamed into the inside too.

I need more magnets.

But I didn't get to wipe up the crud before the pic.

The poor thing is dying. I need to find one the same size soon.

I might even have to break down and buy one.

A week ago you could see the back wall of my fridge. Today? Not so much! Last week, when I packed away all my shopping, you needed to hold a hand up when you opened the door just in case something tried to escape.

I took "before" and "after" pics since today is shopping day. Didn't need much today, but had to run out and get the deals at the stores before the ad week ends. Hence, quite a few things in the "before" shot. I took a tighter shot for the second picture, since nothing changed in the "wings".

Fridge shame - secret lives of refrigerators

Now that fridge looks disgustingly healthy, CG! Obviously, your use of photographic lighting is much better than mine, as has everyone else's. My pic looks like something you'd find at the Munster's.

The secret life of refrigerators indeed. My old fridge started making these weird funny talking like noises at me between cooling cycles. I had to get another fridge recently, one that was quiet and didn't make obscure talking like noises at me. No, I'm not on any psyche drugs, yet.

At least you weren't talking back to your fridge, Caslon. Or were you?
