Warm weather has led me to borrow an old electric fan from my parents. This fan has been in the garage for years and we weren’t sure if it still worked. No fear. My mother had the answer. She advised me thus:
‘If it gives you any sparks when you plug it in, just put it in some water for a bit’.
As I’ve said before, the elderly can be malicious devils. But we must still honour our inheritance mothers and fathers.
