Beautiful. Who doesn't love blue?

I see some familiar faces in there. I've got probably, oh, 10 or 15 of the Kenmore (Panasonics) like that, most blue. A couple are maroon.

Who doesn't like blue?? I'll tell you, my wife has a limit to her tolerance for it. When my closet is opened, 90% of the clothing in there down to tee shirts is navy blue. The discussion has gone on and on. Mainly, she's for variety. I say, "I don't have to waste time deciding what to wear every day" and "Now that I've found a color I like, I've locked onto it." I have many sets of dark blue shirt/trouser work-type clothes that I wear most of the time. Picture old men working in the paper mill 30 years ago, that's my look.

I have so-called nice clothes for various occasions, but there's no sense in wearing most of it working (reconditioning vacs, splitting wood, running chainsaws, rehabbing crummy bank-owned houses for people, chipping brush and branches, etc.) I retired once already over four years ago but it looks like I may have to retire again.

Don't forget the blue Kenmore's from the 70's and 80's! Those were always my favorite!!!

I didn't see a Kirby Tradition in your collection. It's blue, one of their prettiest machines.

My collection is a mix of colours.

Three (if you include my U4014 Ranger) green ones, one blue one, one white one, and one cream one.

Have another one for you

My Simplicity S24 would be a great addition to your blue collection.

I would like to get one sometime. They have significant meaning to me.
