Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

My 81. Been in and out of the shop all summer getting a variety of things fixed. Hopefully it'll hold together now until winter so I can get some use out of it.
