No sooner did I hit the Target checkout button and say out loud that the old vacuum would just stay upstairs by the litter box and never be lugged around again…
I knocked over a plant, nice pile of dirt on the floor.
Hauled vacuum down, plugged it in, fired it up.
No suction. Well, slight suction. Very slight. Very, VERY slight.
I didn’t expect the purchase of the new vacuum to be justified before it even arrived.
But, 16 years is a good run for a vacuum cleaner and it served me very well.
