A sad day ---the end of an era

Well this was a really sad day for me. My faithful Big Shot has died!
After many years of extensive use it has finally stopped working. It started to make a grinding sound when you turned the handle, the handle then got harder to turn and finally the handle stopped turning altogether.
Michael took it apart , as you can see, cleaned it and put it back together. But, unfortunately it is beyond repair.
I can't bear the thought of throwing away my trusty friend so it will take its place on top of my wall units in the kitchen so that I can regularly look at it with fondness.
Fortunately for me I sell Sizzix products so I have "bought" a new Big Shot from myself!!. My new friend and I have already spent many happy hours together. Hopefully our friendship will last as long as the last one!!!!!
