    I believe the picture is of a burn of some sort made into the surface of a table covered with vinyl wood veneer. The burn could be from a cigarette, but given the nature of this blog I am guessing it is from a switch that shorted out

      Christine!!! You are partly correct! That is indeed a burn on a table, but not from a switch shorting out. It absolutely has to do with switches (and being frugal). AWESOME GUESS!!!

      Exactly Jeannette! Nice teamwork! Christine got the first part and you brought it home! We were making our own switches using a soldering gun to make the connections!!! Someone, not me, no never me, put the gun down on the table…more than once!!
