Today I had to say good-bye to my trusty old Oster blender jar.  Someone accidentally dropped it on the tile floor and shattered it to bits. Check out the thickness of those glass shards, you can see what kind of quality material they used to use for blender jars! I got the blender at a yard sale for $5, and it has outperformed any of the cheaply made plastic blenders I had bought previously.  This is definitely an area where the idiom “they don’t make ‘em like they used to” applies.

But hey, look at the bright side — now I have an honest-to-goodness reason to ask for THIS for my birthday! ;)

{I just checked Amazon, and it looks like I can get a replacement glass jar for only $10! It’s not authentic Oster, but it’ll do. Looks like it’s pretty much the same quality, which is exciting…but that doesn’t mean I’m taking the Vitamix off  my b-day list!!}
