Time Machine Thursday: Turn the Light On!!

Time to fire up the old time machine...it's a little dusty, but still works.

Today we're going back to Oct. 21, 1879 when Thomas Edison invented a workable incandescent electric lamp!








I think Tommy got the idea for the giant phonograph thing from my ears, but that's okay, he can have all the credit!
Man, have things sure changed since Tommy started tinkering with bulbs so long ago! Now mom and dad have little tiny radios with music and satellite radios! And now we have all these piggy-tail looking bulbs in the house which are supposed to save money and energy, but all I care about is the money, cause you know what that means! More money means more NOMS!!!

  3. What a cute and creative post, Anna!!! We have those silly new light bulbs here too, but we guess we can live with them if it means more green papers for treats.
