I had lids for my Corning Casserole dishes until my first sister-in-law borrowed them, and sold the lids at her garage sale. And she was the better of the two women my brother married.
I think you can sum up Bucky’s position like this: “What’s yours is mine, and what’s mine is mine, even if it used to be yours.” I’ve known people like that.
Funny, that’s what Jack Benny used to say when he encountered Frank Nelson.
1951 Studebaker Commander, or maybe the Champion. I had an uncle who absolutely loved Studies. They built some truly gorgeous cars in the mid to late 1950s that were miles ahead of what the other car companies were producing. The Hawk series of cars were a prime example of this but even their President and Commander series were gorgeous looking cars. Too bad they were too small to survive.
And sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel is the headlight of a long fast freight train, that doesn’t know and doesn’t care that you are there.
She could definitely help me accomplish a couple of my New Year’s resolutions!
Not necessarily. things can be lifted and shifted without fully unwrapping something, and accomplish the same goal. True, part of the fun is in fully unwrapping a gift like that, but sometimes it can be fun doing it the way she suggests.
I love unwrapping my presents! On the other hand, for the past three years, my teenaged nephew has asked for socks for Christmas. I worry about that kid.
Not sure that option was available to us when we bought our washer. Not sure it would have mattered anyway. We bought it at Sears Canada.
Pretty much the way it is with most major appliances these days. I had a problem with my washing machine earlier this year. Called a repairman. Fortunately, it was fairly minor – a clogged pump – but he told me that if he had to replace the pump it would cost about $500 for the part alone. It’s even worse with any of the electronic components in a washing machine or a stove. If/when something goes in one of them the whole circuit board has to be replaced. it’s frequently cheaper to buy a whole new appliance. It has really hurt his business, not to mention being wasteful.
