After getting back home, yesterday afternoon, I spent some time doing computer chores. I unloaded and reloaded the electronic book, queuing up another novel or two for reading, and I did some work on iTunes that needed doing.

Into the early evening, forestcats was starting dinner (homemade pita) by heating up the oven with a pizza stone in it when she noticed smoke leaking out of the oven. When she opened it, we saw flames inside. She tried to put it out first with salt, to no effect; we then broke out the fire extinguisher we've had since we moved into the house, and one quick squirt killed the flames.

So, looks like we're going to have to replace the oven; something we've expected for a while, as it must be over 25 years old already.

To finish the evening, we sat and talked about history and geography for a couple of hours. Nice, restful.

Today...Dungeonmaster! Be there!
