the natural habitat of the blender (and other unassuming objects) . . .

i was manufactured in 1977 in windsor, ontario. i am a classic – eight speed device. most recently, i have been retired living out my days in disuse above the kitchen pantry. in another time, i was the primary blender in a multi-blender family. i ran a regular cycle of smoothies and soups including some excellent tours of duty during berry seasons where some very inspired beverages were served from my lovely, frosted glass spout. and of course there was that run of amaretto a few years back. but i digress.

here i am photographed in the summer of 2003 at 2487 ryde with some very solid companions of mine, unsweetened soymilk and high fat yogurt, two stoic staples in the world of smoothie preparation. both, as you can tell from the image have, at this point been used to the point of exhaustion. notably absent from the photograph is the banana peel.
