Always check the obvious

I have a timer switch on our hallway light. Recently it stopped working. Since I have had this same switch in two other places and they both burned out, I ASSUMED the same thing took place. So I went ahead and ordered a new timer switch from Amazon. It arrived I installed it and bazinga it did not light the light! I look up at the light and to my amazement I asked my self, "Self, did you check the bulbs?"

So I have a new switch and new light bulbs.

You know what they say about assuming...

We visited my wife's brother a few weeks ago and his girlfriend told us the electrician just left. One of their lights had been flickering and then finally quit lighting. The electrician replaced the bulb
I started to ask how much that cost but kept my mouth shut
