Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Meet the newest member of the family

Say hello to my new baby: the HP OfficeJet 5610.

My T45 has had a full life: nine years of printing soccer schedules, story notes and holiday newsletters, among many other things. It lived well and has endured much abuse.

T45 has been adorned with a smushed penny (you know the souvenir ones from attractions) of a cute little penguin with Penguin Island along the top and Fort Worth Zoo on the bottom. It has also sported my motivational magazine clipping, too. It will move over to the hard drive or somewhere else where I can see it. It reads:
You deserve a little lift!
You will find your strength within you; in places deep inside that you have not yet dared to visit - Ruth Fishel
We all have moments when we think, I can't do this. But you can! You have a well of patience (ha, this magazine person doesn't know me) and courage that's always there for you to tap. Believe in yourself; you're greater than any challenge you face.

So, sweet little T45, a fond farewell to you this evening. May your next home treat you much kinder than this one ever did. I hope your foster family at Goodwill takes good care of you until some cheapskate takes you home and loves you, hopefully better than I did!

    9 years?!?!?!?!?! That has to be some kind of record for an HP All-in-One!!! I usually have to upgrade every couple of years...and that is just a printer/scanner!!!

    Bravo T45...job well done!!
