If you remember just a couple of days ago we said a sorrowful farewell to our waffle iron.
Yesterday we lost another small appliance. Our stereo in our front room gave it up after fifteen years. Yes fifteen years of music and magic. It was getting old. You couldn't turn it up using the actual volume knob on it any more because doing that would only turn it down. Thankfully there was a remote and the remote would make the volume work.
Unfortunately yesterday as I was in the midst of moving the front room around I caused the stereo to meet and early death. I was trying to put it back in the bookcase and in doing so it fell out of my hands and onto the floor. I did try to resuscitate it. Took all the screws out and took the back panel off even though it told me not to do so because of a risk of electric shock. But I did. I took my life into my hands to see if I could bring back life into my stereo.
It was not to be. It was getting power to it but when you tried to turn it on nothing happened. So I sadly, I had to pull the plug.
Farewell fine stereo who played many hours of enjoyable music. You served us well. (except for the times in this last little while when you've played that darn Katy Perry "Hot n' Cold" song FAR too often, but then nothings perfect.)
May your tuner find many new and wonderful stations free of static and Green Tea Lady and SuperDell commercials.
I bid you adieu.
