Actually, funny you should say that because the cat did do it.

It’s was winter (which is irrationally cold in Iowa) and we had woken early in the morning. We got the fireplace going and sat right in front of it to warm up. The cat whooshed by and we both looked up. I’m not sure what my husband was thinking but I know I thought, that painting is going to fall on us before I had time to react. Sure enough it did, and a whole lot of glass broke too. He got up to clean up the glass and I ran down to my workshop to set the painting back in the frame and hung over the mantel again (more securely this time)

He deserves his one thing. He doesn’t ask for anything. Also, sometimes it;s just fun to give him a hard time.
