Please be sure to turn off all your table lamps when you leave the house. Use a ceiling light to make it look as if you're home. We had a fire which destroyed almost everything because of a short in a lamp. That made me think how easily a fire could start if a lamp fell over.
Like your lamps, my things were just that-things, but it was a lot of work, time, and trouble to try to list everything we had for the insurance company and not be able to live at home! The firemen rescued Checkers, the cat that didn't like me, and brought her around with oxygen. One cat went right through a basement window, and we lost a kitten and a bird to the smoke. The dog was outside, and we weren't home; thank the Lord!
