Call me an old fuddy-duddy, but I like keeping the front of my fridge clutter-free.  From time to time my family will put things on the front of the fridge, but I always come along behind them to move them to more appropriate places.

I allow the children’s art work to be hung on the sliding glass door, but not on the fridge.  Tickets to events?  Receipts?  There’s a proper place for those as well, but not on the front of the fridge.  Appointment reminders?  Write them on the calendar and then toss them.  Get the picture?

The only thing I like on the front of my fridge is a small, magnetic dry erase board.  We use this board to keep our running shopping list.  It came with a nifty, smallish, magnetic eraser that also holds the dry erase pen.  Nice.  Neat.  Orderly.

But I have boys.  Yes I do, I have boys.  Last week sometime, the dry erase pen was  removed from the nifty, smallish magnetic eraser that held it, and was put into the hands of a G. I. Joe.  This particular Joe, it seems, has a backpack with a suction cup on the back, enabling him to be suspended from the front of the fridge.  His hands conform to just the right configuration to hold the dry erase pen.

You know what?  I’m kinda likin’ having Joe on the fridge!  I think he’ll stay for awhile.

God bless you as you look well to the ways of your households!
Proverbs 31:27
