Mom’s cleaning lady is here, so the search’n’scan will have to wait a few hours.
Three years ago, Mom was all set on getting something to put on her radiators, cos she’d decided radiators are ugly (I didn’t know they were supposed to be pretty, myself). Middlebro, who worked in a marble company (not a quarry, these cut marble and stone and set it in buildings, tombs, etc), proposed getting slabs of marble and setting them on top of the radiators; she already had something like that with a slab of wood on one radiator. Last year, Lilbro (who was in the marble business at the time) finally got the marble, but the pieces needed to put it on top of the radiators “didn’t exist any more.” Last saturday I took one of the supports for the wood to a hardware store and told one of the guys “Mom has these on one of her radiators, you guys have anything similar?” “Sure.” The current model is a tad more sophisticated, but lo and behold, the marble slabs are now in place! Turns out my brothers had asked the hardware store guys for “a part just like this one” - I don’t know whether they asked the wrong guy or the guy just thought “ah, no, just like that one we don’t have” but didn’t think of showing them the current model.
