RIP blender

The blender that I've been using for the last 10 or so years is truly a relic. It was given to my parents as a wedding present. They are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary this year.

Ugly it may be, but for the last decade this blender has served me mighty fine smoothies, soups and cocktails. I've had no complaints.

However all good things must eventually come to an end. Although the blades still rotate, not much blending has been happening lately. My smoothies have been far from smooth, so finally I have bitten the bullet and decided to farewell ye olde ugly blender.

A parcel arrived on my doorstep not long ago.

Inside, a shiny new blender. Of course its red.

Now its no longer smoothie weather, but I've made 2 soups alone this week. Let's see if this one lasts 40 years. Somehow I doubt it!!

Those older appliances go forever, don't they? I remember my parents used the same toaster and can opener for many, many years, and yet I've had to replace most of my small appliances after 2-3. I think I've had 4 blenders alone in my 15 years of marriage.

Beautiful new blender! I hope it serves you well!

4-5 blenders? Eeek! I hope this one does not die anytime soon that's for sure!!!
