Anyone have a blender he/she'd like to sell cheaply? Mine just died. I know, I know: Craig's List. Just thought I'd try here first.

Circle Thrift might have used blenders. Walmart, Target, Home Depot and Lowes all carry them too.

Ask any of the newlyweds.

Ask any of the newlyweds. Theyre bound to have more than they need.
Oh, and kmart sells blenders in the housewares dept. They're usually in the small appliances section.

I remember when Jefferson Ward sold em.

Oh, and does anyone remember the old blender truck? it was a lot like the pizza truck but sold blenders.

I remember the blender truck. Then certain people complained and he had to move on to a better neighborhood. Someone recently seen him up at 5 and somerset. They always say you don't know what you had until its gone.

Ah, the old blender truck. I

Ah, the old blender truck. I remember as a kid how kindly old "Blender Sam" would let me push the 'puree' button. Those were good times.

Anyone remember the Spatula Wagon?

I *loved* the Spatula Wagon. I remember how much fun it was to try out a new spatula on the sample pans and bowls. Spatula Annie was super nice to us little guys, and the grown up men fondly referred to her as "fetching". If she really liked you, she would rent you spatulas that you'd never have been able to purchase yourself!

Unfortunately, the business was doomed when it was bought by Blender Sam's first wife, who refused to give up her married name when he divorced her. Nobody wanted to buy Spatulas from someone named "Blender Sally". It was just wrong.

Not as helpful as the Forum Man was.

He rode around on a horse towing a carriage with several chalkboards in it. For a nickel per week, your whole household could write responses to everything the neighbors hard written. For an extra penny each, you could add a new question or comment for everybody to respond to.

The thing I remember the most is how even back then people were making jokes about how old DNA was.

I have an uncle in Texas

I have an uncle in Texas whom I think has a blender. I could call him and ask him if he still uses it. He'll be up for Thanksgiving, maybe he could bring it then.

Glad to help!

I going to target today.

I going to target today. Would you like me to pick you one up? I'll front you the cash and only charge you a small interest fee. The goverment will just add it to the $750,000,000,000 bailout.

Yes, agreed. These tangents are ridiculous.

Back to what Dan had mentioned about the "Forum Man," he was indeed a helpful and kindly neighborhood staple but his services would have been useless without the help of the Question Mark Oxcart that would trail along---helping people turn their declarative statements into inquisitve ones with the addition of a simple and inexpensive "?" that Question Mark Willie would sell for mere pennies.

Many would have searched in vain for a proper corset or a good cobbler without Willie's help. Of course, they couldn't thank him profusely until the "Exclamation Point Rickshaw" came along a few years later, but that would be getting off track.

Newbie.

Everybody knows The Exclamation Point Rickshaw was just a story created by parents to scare their kids and demonize the Japanese during World War II.
