A Sad Passing
You know how you carry things with you through your life? Things that were given to you and that you've used through the years never really thinking too much about them? You just always reach for them and they're there. Yesterday marked the sad passing of one of those things. My Sunbeam "Burst of Power" hand mixer bit the dust! Right in the middle of mixing up a Betty Crocker Strawberry cake mix! What a sad end! It would have been much sweeter if it had gone down during the creation of a splendid made from scratch masterpiece. But no, it happened during the mundane mixing of a box cake found in the pantry (probably passed its expiration date too) when the girls decided "we need a cake." This little mixer was given to me as a wedding shower gift by a wonderful group of nurses on the ortho/neuro floor of Crawford Long Hospital. I used to work there as a nursing assistant while I was in nursing school in Atlanta. They were a great bunch and taught me a lot. Well, little Sunbeam...thanks for 30 years of happy mixing!
