It's the end of era. Rosie, the 38 year-old Electrolux vacuum I inherited from my grandfather, is no longer with us.
Questionable rumbling and grinding of the engine meant it was time to trade her in for a glossy new model. Her 1970's tan wheels will roam the halls no more, she's sucked up her last dustbunny.
After 38 years of service I think she deserves an homage...
sporting her brand new hose, the one we bought about a month ago (sigh)
the dial, I never knew what it did
another shot with the new hose
Wouldn't you love an area rug that colour? I so would.
she was even made in Canada
They just don't make 'em like you anymore Rosie. Well done my dear, well done.
