ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct 21

Things change and I don't even know . My inexpensive Electrolux vacuum that worked just fine,suddenly wouldn't hold a charge. I liked it because it was very light weight and could scoot under just about anything. It wasn't great,  but it did the job, I thought. I took it to the repair shop with the question " is it worth it to fix it" . Answer, No. Here is what I learned. Electrolux sold its name to Eureeka three years ago. There is no more Electrolux company. That was our first vacuum cleaner. a tank on wheels. The kids use to sit on it as I dragged it across a room. We had that vacuum for at least 40'years. We eventually took it to our cottage. We replaced the motor. It wouldn't die. Now I wish that I had it still. The repair man said that even he can't get parts for the old ones any more. And I learned something else. My light weight vacuum that I thought was pretty OK until it wasn't, was never meant to be used for rugs. it was meant to be a quick clean up of crumbs and things like that. no one told me , so I guess ignorance is bliss. now I need to buy a new vacuum. I have one room with carpet. Do I get a machine that will clean one room of carpet, or a quick clean machine that does crumbs. I'm going for crumbs. Noodle isn't that good with crumbs.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
