Well, Phooey...
I had shelved all the St. Nicholas volumes and was vacuuming up after myself and all of a sudden there was a horrible stench from the vacuum cleaner. The belt that drives the beater bar on the power head had cracked and gotten caught. No smoke or anything of that sort, but a terrible smell of burning whatever and rubber.

The kicker is that the only place around here that sells belts for a Kirby is in this obscure little vacuum cleaner shop that is open for about two hours on Saturday. Urgh. Exactly in the opposite direction of where I needed to go tomorrow.
