“I discovered my wife in bed with another man, and I was crushed. So I said, 'Get off me, you two!'”

PLACE:  Kitchen counter
SUBJECT:  Sears Ice Crusher

This is one of my favorite thrifting items.  It is an ice crusher just like my mom had when I was growing up.  When we were sick, especially if we had a stomach virus and had trouble keeping things down, she would always crush ice for us to suck on so we would stay hydrated.  I found this one in a local thrift store for $3.00 and I use it every morning to crush ice for my diet drink.

This is so cool -- the item AND the photo. :) I bought a Cuisinart blender a few years ago that could crush ice just so I could make margaritas at home. I didn't even realize they made ice crushers back then - duh.

Oz Girl - HH bought a blender at Christmas time to make smoothies, DramaQueen ended up blending the rubber seal to pieces. I haven't replaced it yet, so I use the manual crusher.

bentonflocke - Yes, you gotta love that price!
