DID SOMEONE SAY #TBT?

 REMEMBER THIS?

general electric refrigerators

The refrigerators in my house were never discarded.

My parents believed in reduce, reuse, recycle. So the over-the-hill ice boxes were moved to the cellar and/or garage until they quit, then re-used (in today’s lingo,re-purposed) in creative ways.

Bright and beyond dazzling, LED lights illuminate my spacious, stylish, and sophisticated refrigerator. She’s a glamour girl. An ohmigodess.

I admit it, I’m an appliance snob. My audaciously cool LEDs flounce and sashay over shelves, strut and swagger into corners, and hurtle to the depths of the continental-shelf-size freezer. It is not my mother’s GE.

Ah, and the luxury of a roomy fridge…it inspires me to doodle.

So. What’s in your ice box? Leave a link to a picture or drawing of yours.
Bring joy to the world, one fridge at a time.

#TBT Did someone say it’s Throwback Thursday? 17-year old Patty wrote this for the Salem Classical and High School Advance Magazine back in 1964 (do the math, you’re right, time has passed).

Thanks to Mike Stafford for finding and sending me these early Patty writings. Heaven forfend if they’d been lost forever…SHS Advance - Spring 1963 - Vol. LXXII - No. 3 - Patricia Raymond
