Just remember, the next one you buy will not last that long! They don't make anything that lasts 25 years anymore (except maybe a marriage and half of you would argue that one).

How many sticks of dynamite did it take?

Truly sorry, Alix! It stinks to lose something you've had for so long.

I KNOW! They don't build 'em to last anymore. Phooey. I won't argue the marriage thing either. Mine's 19 and counting.

Smart ass. Thanks PF. I loved that thing. I bet I used it at least once or twice a week for SOMETHING.

I've managed to raise very healthy kids, they hardly ever get sick and when they do it doesn't last longer than a day or 2!

I'm a bit better today, had some coffee an hour ago and so far so good. Going to make a slice of toast with marmite now.
Glad to hear you are feeling better. Take care of yourself. We worry.
