Hungry, Lonely, Scared • Part 2, Capture!

Ensconsed!!!!

Saw the new kitty hanging around right outside the door, hungry. Great time to set the trap. I use a Havahart Live Trap, set with canned, stinky food. These traps have a trigger pressure plate so when the kitty (or raccoon or fox or skunk) go inside, they get all the way in before stepping on the trigger plate, and the door behind them snaps shut but is far enough away to (hopefully) not catch any tail or fur in the closure. The trap has a spring loaded lock so it stays shut once the critter is inside.

Big Corporate Licensing vs. Cottage Industry

Police Box Fridge

Meanwhile, loving fans were making hats in a certain style similar to one that a character wore. Now this wasn't a newly designed hat, made specifically for the show. It was an old, old style knitted cap with ear flaps that people have been wearing for centuries.

Our Police Box Fridge – Refrigerate! Refrigerate!

police-box-fridge800

All work and no play dulls the mind. For Halloween, Joy thought that it would be a great idea to dress up our refrigerator as a parody on a Police Public Call Box. It's a French Door, bottom roll-out freezer style, so the double door design of a Police Box fits right in. How to make it happen?

Making a Police Box Refrigerator

Police Box Fridge

I've turned my refrigerator into a Police Public Call Box. The doors look like the Police Box, the cap has the sign and a working light beacon, the ice/water dispenser is hiding behind the little phone door and it even makes a "whooshy" sound when the doors open!
