My New Co-Worker

This is our office:


It's been kinda messy lately. We've had some big projects going on.

And this is Irene, my new co-worker:

We get help from a couple other big guys from time to time:


Our workstation is a pretty efficient machine so we can get a lot done in a day.

Irene had been in retirement in a lady's garage when I hired her for a fee of $5.00. Once she cleaned up she was perfect for the job. I don't know how I managed without her. She can boil a gallon of water in no time and has a huge pouring spout and a lid that stays on no matter how far she is tipped. Her handle doesn't usually get hot either. She's quite a gal.

Irene is a cutie! So nice that you gave an elder the chance to show that she was still productive even in her later years, bless you.

I have that same kettle that you have. Mine belonged to my great grand mother, Ma Ma Macil. I or my mom lost the lid at some point so I have it on top of my kitchen cabinets with a plant in it.

Us seniors gotta stick together, Brighid!

Angela, isn't it odd how something like that can go missing?

That's a great find for $5.00 and one that you will get much use of.

She's a "beaut" for sure.

How wonderful! If I had a tea kettle as wonderful as yours I'd probably wanna name it as well. :D

Love all the 'helpers' in your kitchen!

Granny Sue said...

Wanda, they never argue, give me any sass, or have bad moods but they do occasionally get kinda hot :)

I also have "range" envy. I want your cooking stove!
