When my daughter Christine was here for Christmas she asked me for the salad dressing shaker she had bought me the Christmas before. I told her that I hadn't used it and frankly I had totally forgotten about it since I had tucked it in the cupboard way back then. Christmas time gets pretty hectic for me...

I searched in the cupboard and found the shaker and she wanted to show me how slick it makes salad dressing.  I opened the shaker and as quick as a wink the little heavy ball flew out and rolled under the fridge. We both tried to retrieve the ball with all sorts of contraptions, but try as we may, we just couldn't reach it from it's hiding place.

Today I remembered about the lost ball and I had the idea to bend a metal coat hanger and see if I can retrieve it. In a few seconds I had the ball out from under it's hiding place.

   This is a pretty neat gadget and my daughter uses her all the time. I'll be using it too since I don't eat bought dressings unless they don't have soy by products.

I might have to wait till the price of lettuce goes down to try my new found ball. lol.
It took me a long while to come up with that idea of using a coat hanger. My mind is slow but I guess it still works.

Thanks for visiting. Please leave me your comments, they cheer me up.
