Doo doo, doo doo, doo, doo, doo doo doo doo doo...

I am loving...



...my "new" $1 tag-sale percolator, bought to replace my dead Mr. Coffee. We have made a commitment not to buy new unless absolutely necessary, so I was very lucky to find this shortly after our coffee pot quit.

The coffee's good, it's hot all day long, and this pot's much prettier on my counter; what more could you want? Sometimes, I really wonder why on earth we think newer is better.

(That title? It's the 1970s commercial jingle that runs through my head every time I think about percolators. I don't remember the brand, just the ditty. Do you? It's bugging me that I can't remember.)
