Humpty Dumpty falls again!
With the best of intentions,(surprising my wife Marilyn) I retrieved a piece of framed art from the garage. She had made the purchase about 3 years ago at an auction and I thought she would enjoy seeing it above one of the fireplaces. So far, so good is the story at this point. I attached the new cord for hanging the picture from the rail. When I lifted the large frame up to the rail another hanging hook was dislodged and fell. The marble fireplace would have survived, but the antique ruby-flash luster had its chimney shattered. To make things more painful, it was one of a pair that I had bought Marilyn for Christmas two years ago. I felt terrible, but she handled it very well and that is probably why I enjoy my life with her so much..
