Maybe Not So Retro


I have never stood beside one of my appliances with this kind of enthusiasm.  Then again, our only brand new appliance — ever — was a Whirlpool refrigerator that Bear and I bought with gift money after our honeymoon.  That was 25 years ago.  We still have that refrigerator and I think our Maytag washer and dryer are just slightly younger than the appliances pictured above.

Based on what I have learned about the newfangled appliances, they are much more expensive to fix.  Our lackluster, but faithful appliances rarely break down and our bill is usually around $80 to $100.  I now know why that Maytag repairman was so lonely.
