Inktober 9, Goodbye Can Opener

I haven’t named our can openers, but the old green one (top) has memories.
I did what I could to keep it going, lubricated and all that,
but at some point, it died.  Froze.  Creaking.  Would no longer move.

We said goodbye and talked about when we bought it, on a cross-country trip in the RV.
Good memories, those.  An object from our early years, twenty years old.

The new one is white, so it was a good object for Inktober, no need for color.
I could work lines in my background!
