Goodbye, my friend

It is flashback time.

Flashback to 1989, Clarion University of Pennsylvania. The College Years. Going to class, working at McDonalds and Subway, learning how to be a responsible and independent adult.

And drinking just a little.

This blender, also know as one of the dueling blenders, spent its youth immersed in a variety of yummy frozen alcohol drinks. (Strawberry daquiris and frozen mudslides were my favorite.) Then we graduated from college, got married and it moved along to margaritas a few times a year. Along came a baby and my poor blender saw no action but fruit smoothies.

Is it any wonder that this past Friday I came home to what appears to be a suicide? Looks like a bullet hole to me.


So, friends, join me as I mourn the passing of an old friend. Drink an alcoholic concoction in its honor. I would if I could, bud sadly, we were a one blender family.

My deepest sympathies on your loss.

When you're ready it might be time to upgrade to a Vitamix!

My condolences on your loss. Bet you are now wishing you had those frozen drinks tubs you left in my freezer?

With every ending comes a new beginning... might I suggest the Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker? :)
