When our water was off last night, the beautiful Mrs K brought home a water jug from her mom's house. The moment I saw it, I was transported to 1964. Not that I remember 1964, but that's when Coleman made this hefty jug. And it's still perfectly functional.
I find that a lot when visiting the in-laws. Like the board games and records from the 50's. It's like they have a time machine sometimes. It makes me wish that things were still made to last....and it makes me wish we could take care of things better, because lord knows we don't.
