As we're (and again, by that I mean mostly Alex, bless his regal heart) sticking our fingers down the throat of this house, inducing it to purge all its clutter, Alex came across this item: This was the rack that held several beginner's wooden puzzles--actually a very cool gift for Bella from Alex's sister a Christmas or birthday ago. But as is the way of things with many pieces, one by one the puzzles lost their bits, and went the way of so many puzzles before them. I told Alex, "You can get rid of this, the puzzles that went in it are scattered hither and yon by now."
Alex: "I thought we might be able to use it for something."
Me: "Whatever on earth?"
Alex: "You could put trays of fresh-baked cookies in there to cool."
He's so cute.
