In Memoriam: Stove Famous

We lost our cool green stove. The front right burner (the big useful one) burnt out. And as it turns out, according to Stanlord, this oven had been in use since 1966. Seriously, they don't make them like that anymore. Plus they stopped making burners and such for this model in 1986 as well. It lived a good life. I imagine it's in Mexico or Europe right now, enjoying oven retirement. That's beautiful.

We're going to miss it's retro dials and olive green coat. Farewell, Stove Famous, Farewell.

This scares me.... what do you do with people who become burnt out?
Are we just left for the scrap pile?
Are we so easily discarded - pushed to the side - replaced?


Sorry I could not help my self.
I know better......
But I had to make some kind of comment.

Yes, that's exactly what we do, Marty.

I especially enjoy pushing burn-outs over the edge of a steep cliff when their time is up.

You shouldn't be worried as long as you're not planning on turning into a burnout Liz. We were going to make you aware of this on Saturday...

Well, in this spirit of Jesus I will pray for you and ask God to forgive you, for you know not what you do should you ever feel I am a burnout.
