We recently had a little refresher course that things, while serving as reminders of more important events and people we love, are just things. In the wise words of my favorite Kirk, "It's all just a bunch of crap."
Our prized outdoor Mexican oven has been the center of numerous social gatherings with friends and family. It has been with us as we harmonized to a guitar, stared into coals while making important decisions, and roasted delicious treats. However, as with all things, our oven has gone the way of the world.
And so, dear friend, we thank you for all the wonderful memories, but the time has come to bid you 'adieu.'
