Blast from the Past



This post is mostly for my brother and sisters.  I was helping my friend, Cheryl, clean her house a few weeks ago.  She is moving to Utah, she actually left today (I'm going to miss you, Cheryl!). 

Anyway, while we were cleaning she brought out this vacuum.  I couldn't believe it.  It was like I was back on Roan Ct. in Beaverton.  This is the EXACT same vacuum my parent's owned.  The funniest thing about these pictures.....when I was uploading them to my computer, Dave came over and said, "Hey!  That's the same vacuum we had when I was a kid!"  I guess Kirby's were popular back in the 70s.  Good times!

Holy Cow! My grandma had that same one in silver/black. (my grandma was the model of practicality, so she would never own such a thing as a flashy red vacuum) So funny. I loved how the bag would inflate and how the would usually be a poof of dust come out of it. I think it's a testimony to that vacuum maker that there are some still working some 30ish years later.
