Yesterday, after cleaning my juicer outside (don’t have a kitchen sink installed yet), I brought all the pieces in and dropped the auger, which, to my horror, slid across the tiles and broke into two pieces. “Are you really going to… Dorothy?” Yep. I hunkered down into crouch position and cried. I’ve waited so long to have my wheatgrass again, got the juicer back from the States, got my wheatgrass growing in September, only to break the auger. I did hear the wisdom, whispered in my ear,”All is perfect. All is as it should be.” Which cut the tears into peace pretty quickly. Then went in to town to get a new glue gun glue stick. Hey, what are the words for glue stick? I tried, “adhesivo, (adhesive,) tuba para mi pequena pistola, (tube for my litte gun), and cinta liquido (liquid tape.) ” ha ha! None of those worked. Then I saw the glue sticks in a display case! They’re called “silicona” (silicone!).”woohoo.I didn’t really expect it to work, but with my wheatgrass and one lettuce leaf at a time, it’s working this morning, whew! Could be a one-off, but I’ll take it! Yeah, it was a one-off. It broke on the last little bit of wheatgrass. But my maestro is in town so we called him to get me some silicona.
