How the heck did that get there?

The June page from my calender my daughter made me. Click to enlarge and see the bee on the flower and the "Buzz" on the paper. I have had a garbage disposal ever since I redid my kitchen 9 years ago. I never had any problems with it except for the odd piece of silverware that found it's way into it. When the kids were here Monday I turned it on and it was very noisy. I said I had put some cherry pits in it and everything was fine. When it kept it up I turned it off and found the top and nipple from one of Jerzie's bottles. Her Mom had put it in the sink and I hadn't known it was there. I know I'd used it since then but when I tried to turn it on yesterday it just buzzed. I got out the book to find out how to unjam it. I got it running again but could see something under one of the blades. I tried to pry it out like the book told me but couldn't get it. It looked shiny like metal so I had the brainstorm to pour oil down there and turn it on and maybe it would come free. Surprise! It worked! This is what I found in the disposal.

I think that it's a quarter. I have no idea how a quarter got any where near the sink. I don't think anyone will take it, do you? At least I learned how to unjam the disposal!

Isn't it amazing the things you'll find in a garbage disposal?! lol Glad you were able to get it out...the poor thing doesn't even look like a quarter anymore! Have a great weekend my friend:-) xox

Thanks a lot for leaving a comment on my pottery balls, I am glad you liked them! Sorry for being a little bid late for visiting you back.

Your garden art on the last post is very pretty, I especially like the little girl in the flower bed!

Have a wonderful week-end and happy gardening!
