We did discuss it, but it was probably in another venue.

This week I found two more tucked away in a drawer that I'd forgotten all about. I was searching because I needed something to reach down in a skinny bottle, and there, in the wrong drawer (no doubt put away months ago by one of my children) in a back corner were two fine slim silicone spatulas. I think they were a christmas gift last year.

Lucky me!

There was only one thing missing from the spacewalk: Sellers' spatula.

It flew overboard, off the right side of the shuttle's payload bay.

"No sign of the spatula. I think it's gone, gone, gone," Sellers said of the kitchen appliance, 14 inches long and 2 inches wide.

When Sellers was nearing the finish of his extended seven-hour, 11-minute spacewalk, mission control teased him by making him count his spatulas. He still had five left, from a total of 6.

"Rub it in, rub it in," Sellers said.

It is rare for spacewalkers to lose such a tool, but "it is no hazard to us," Gonzalez-Torres said. Nonetheless, military monitors of space debris were notified of the new hazard to track.

Gonzalez-Torres praised the duo for using the goo to repair five of eight mock test sites. The other three were there in case they had extra time to work, but they were sent to their next task.


I can see the art work now. . .

I'm sorry, Bee-Dubya, for the loss of your beloved. After I read your post I felt I had to do something to mark the passing of your spatula, and this being Veterans' Day I couldn't think of anything more appropriate than a twenty-one gun salute.

So I hauled out my Enfield, dug around until I found some bullets, and went outside to fire the salute. I also took my trumpet so that I could play "Taps."

After nine or ten shots the cops showed up. I explained what I was doing, and they agreed that it was a fine and noble thing, so they joined in. I went inside and got some coffee and doughnuts, and by the time I come outside again the neighbors were helping as well. By and by someone opened a case of beer, another feller brought a grill over and pretty soon we were having one heckuva funeral salute for your beloved spatula.

All in all, several thousand rounds were fired, if you include those by Crazy Eric, who brought his rabbit gun over. I didn't get to play "Taps," but a couple of guys with bagpipes did pipe "Johnny Cope," which everyone enjoyed a lot more.

Things kinda broke up after a flight of Idaho Air Guard Warthogs fired their salute into the ground. We figured we couldn't top that, go we all did a hand salute and went on home.

Those Warthogs sure did tear the golf course out back a new one, though. Lots more holes for the golfers to chose from now....

Many of the [sic] rubber scrapers are made of silicon these days. They don't melt like the rubber did. So far I haven't murdered any to report back on what does take them out.

That turner-less pancake maker is just a cheap knockoff of a krumkake iron. You can make waffles with pancake batter on your krumkake iron, though I've never bothered to try it. I just make krumkake, and I use a pancake turner-type spatula to remove each cookie from the iron.

How many spatulae?
    Well, when Stephen Lee moved in with me we each had a full stock of kitchen accoutrements. I find at least 20 in the kitchen, but who knows how many may be hiding in as yet unpacked boxes somewhere in the basement? I think we fall well within the parameters of the spatula rich.
    Perhaps we could get together for a spatula swapping party, or establish a spatula bank for distribution of our excesses to those in need....

I believe I recall seeing something akin that years ago--sort of like two small teflon skillets hinged together which cooked everything from crepes to grilled cheese sandwiches & burgers.
   Ever notice that it is impossibe to find a real rubber (not plastic) spatula these days? Not to mention a metal spatula--if the person at the store even knows what one is. It is easy, however, to find el cheapo pancake flipper devices, especially the kind that melt in the pan.

I have some bad news, folks. One of the spatulas I had when I started this thread is no longer with us. Yes, it has gone to that great Waffle House in the sky where all good spatulas go when they've flipped their final hamburger patty. The poor thing got left a little too close to a stove burner and... well, does the term "amorphous blob of soot-tinged white plastic" mean anything to you?

The spatula is sorely missed and any help you may feel inclined to offer to help get us through the grieving process would be appreciated. If you want to send some flowers, that'd be nice. Money would be better. If you don't have the cash, I take VISA, Mastercard and American Express.

How many, eh?

One metal one (not-allowed-to-use-because-all-our-pans-are-teflonated)

Two plastic ones - one large and wide and slotted... one small and solid and slightly scorched at the leading edge, giving it a space-shuttle-on-reentry sort of look.

Waaaaaay too many of the cheap wooden Ikea kind that start looking downright fluffy around the edges after being repeatedly washed and scraped across burnt eggs and washed again...

Does my chrome-plated pie lifter thingy count? It looks like a 'fish slice' and is spatulatesque...

How about my putty knife which is currently on the kitchen windowsill, and (I confess) has been used in spatuloid maneuvers when all the other ones were dirty?


And has anyone else ever used the lid of a CD case as a pancake flipper/egg easer/ meat turner? Or wrapped an old credit card in tin foil for the same purpose? 'Fess up, guys...
