UPDATE Mid-Week Philosophy: Metal Spatula
As soon as I published this post, my daughter FOUND the metal spatula on E-Bay!!!!
I bought it right away and in less than a week I had it. ( It came with a really nice fork, too, with a wooden handle )
So I have been saved, I no longer have to grieve. I have a replacement!!! And I owe it all to my daughter. Thank you Sarah!!!
