I use the flour sack dish towel for crushed ice.

I also put the drink and the ice in the blender together and make a slushy.

The slushy method makes great whiskey sours, a can of lemonade concentrate, a can of whiskey and ice cubes buzzed in the blender, topped with a maraschino cherry or two!

Both of my parents passed away. I wonder if my sister has it.

I squeeze the ice in just one hand. It doesn't dare not to crush.

I wish. I have lost the use of my index finger and thumb on my left hand. And the right hand is not that great either.

I can't bend my left index finger at all. And a doctor stuck an IV needle in my thumb and hit the nerve. It killed the thumb. And on the right hand, due to arthritis, I have nodules on every joint on every finger. So is life.

I have a ice blade thing for my FP.

I haven't tried that one yet.

Oh, that sounds perfect. I will soon be looking for a new FP and I'll be looking for that crushed ice blade. Hmm, I wonder if Stirling's old Braun FP has one. I'll Google to see what they look like.
