Well, here was a challenge set by Lain - scrap one of your possessions that you LOVE! I try not to love any of my possessions too much - just seems wrong, and I could and should be content with so much less than I actually do have, so it took some thinking about. However, I got to thinking that I've had this 'Old Faithful' for over 20 years easily, and I still use it almost daily. It chopped my babies food when they were first being weaned onto solids, and it has chopped up food for thousands of meals. It is battered and bruised, with pockmarks in the steel where it is gradually wearing away, but I still love it, and turn to it rather than any of the posh new riveted-handled knives in the knife block! Great LOAD challenge today!
