Ode to an old fridge


old fridge

We recently bought a new fridge, because we need the space, but getting rid of this one felt like throwing out an old friend. It had worked continuously for 18 years, around 157,680 hours, through Japanese summers and four moves. This was a great machine. This was a tribute to human engineering. You can have all the newest whatever, just give me something that works.
