Lucy and Ethel install an over-the-range microwave

 I don't know what in the heck I'm smiling about...
maybe the fact that somebody showed up to help me install the new microwave.

 Hi, Ethel! Thanks for coming. I'll try not to wear you out with all the two-person projects
 I've been saving for just such an occasion.

 Who among us remembers that desk game with the silver balls,
where you pulled out the one on the end and let it go and it knocked into the rest of them?
That's what the new chandelier reminds me of.

Even though I replaced an old Whirlpool with a new Whirlpool,
the mounting brackets were not the same. Figures. The new one
is a slightly different size, so some of the tile had to get chipped out.
(Not a problem. Stay tuned for "Lucy and Ethel Install a backsplash"
and scroll back to the first photo if you want a clue.)

New holes were drilled. 

 All those warnings I'd read about this being a two-person job were oh so true. 
It was very tricky. We had to lift it in and out of the bracket
five times before we could get the proper alignment with the screws that
go in the top of the oven through the bottom of the cabinet. Details-schmetails.

 The important thing is that it's in and it works.
