I check windows in summer at bedtime and the stove before I leave

I said how I check windows in summer at bedtime and the stove before I leave and heaters in the winter. I recall Uncle A__ warning me against putting papers against the electric baseboard, back when I was 5 or 6 or something and we stayed overnight there. Mom said she doesn’t remember staying overnight, and now, it does seem odd that we’d stay over only an hour from home. Oh, well.

I check before I leave but I almost never go back into the house once we’re on the road. … Mom said, what would happen if you didn’t check these things? The house would burn down, I said, and we laughed.
