Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

Had it:

Well I didn't, my folks did. It was the above model because I distinctly remember the yellow check-pattern on the coffee maker's face. I'd forgotten what the filter container boxes looked like. I think they got it sometime around '74. I'm not sure if that's when they were invented, but I'd never seen one before that. Prior to their Mr. Coffee, my folks had one of the old aluminum perkers with the glass knob at the top that to this day I have no idea how to use.
BTW, not to be too off-topic, but the spell-check wants me to change "perkers" to "porkers" or "peckers"...
