Morbidly speaking, is this the last one?

After 14 years the pump in our old Miele G 892 SC dishwasher quit working.  Given its age, the cost to repair seemed inappropriate, so instead we've replaced it with a brand new, sleek and shiny, Miele G 6625 SCU CLST Futura Crystal.

Hopefully this one will last even longer than the old unit - they say it should be good for twenty years!  If so, maybe this will be the last dishwasher I ever need to buy!

Wow! How convenient is this?

Amazon continues to make everyday life easier and easier! 

A little after 7 pm this evening, instead of driving to my local supermarket to get groceries, I jumped online and ordered everything I needed, a mix of fresh produce, bakery items, meat and sundries. 

The order will be delivered right to my doorstep tomorrow morning before 9 am!

No driving or parking hassle, no waiting in line at the checkout, no lifting and carrying, no delivery charge, a $25 discount as it was my first Amazon Fresh order, and of course a 5% credit to my Amazon account because I used my Amazon credit card!  Dang! That's hard to beat!

A new venture!

A new venture! We now have fruit trees. Oranges and apples currently, but we'll probably add avocados. What's really neat is the fabulous water view. Great place to hang out in the shade and do a little bird watching.

Home Again

After a one night stop in Gila Bend's KOA (great campground), and several nights in Yuma seeing Phil & Cathy at Shangri La, we're back home again.

On this trip we clocked 3,187 miles over 47 days achieving an average of 11.0 MPG while towing the Honda Fit.
