This morning, our first-floor smoke alarm started chirping.

Mrs. AOW can't reach it to replace the battery. The one neighbor who used to help us out with these things has moved away.

She phoned her cousin-in-law, but he won't be able to get here for hours.

I guess I'll be sleeping on my one good ear so that I can't hear the damn thing making racket. If I sleep on my one good ear and snore like crazy, I'll be able to get some rest. I need some rest! PT wore me out yesterday.

Can't you switch it of with a broom stick?

The one in my kitchen has the tendency to go of when i leave the baking oven open, i just keep a broomstick handy for when it go's off. :)

A step stool may be in order.

I couldn't get it to shut off -- even with a broomstick.

I have step stools. But these high ceilings in this 1930 structure and my short stature still prevent my reaching the smoke alarm.

I recommend the Weatherby SA-08 Semi-automatic 5 in the mag + 1 in the chamber shotgun.

Mr. must be time to troll the neighborhood looking for a new helper.
