Our vacuum has breathed its last. We've tried doing repairs, but this time the repair would be more than the value, so I waved my white hankie at it and said goodbye.

Yes, we have a Kirby. And not just any Kirby, but the Kirby that was a wedding gift for my in-law's. So while we sometimes fall for the flash and bright lights of the newer models, there's something to be said for old faithful. Old faithful that is always there for us. :)
