In mourning

Narragansett, RI. Today we mourn the passing of our late Amana range. After 11 years of adequate service she will be entering the gates of the recycling yards of China to be reborn as some kind of inferior product. She is survived by her close colleagues in the trade, Commercial Convection Oven, Convection Oven, Jr. , Conveyor Toaster, the Waffle Iron Twins, and her special friend, Rice Cooker. This leaves a huge gap in our Breakfast Team.

Actually it has been five nights of guests since the carcass was hauled away. The other appliances have produced perfectly nice breakfasts but it is time to get a new stove. Dave is out of town which, with guests in residence, is limiting the time I have to shop. Wish me luck.
