An unexpected paperweight

Hooray, another appliance to throw out. This time it's a Radio Shack table radio that my ex-neighbor lady gave me before she moved to Ft. Lauderdale. It was nothing much in the sound department, but it looked neat and retro with its fake wood case and lighted vertical display. I've been listening to it almost every night since I moved. I went to turn it on tonight and it was dead. At first I thought it was the outlet -- some of the outlets here need rewiring. But it wasn't.

In the old days I'd have kept it around for a while, telling myself I'd "get it fixed." But I don't need it -- I have a perfectly good portable radio/cd player which I am listening to now, a clock radio/cd player, and a stereo that I haven't hooked back up yet. So I am turning over a new leaf: if it breaks and isn't worth fixing, to the dumpster it goes.

And that is my exciting thought for the day.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
