I think I can boast on one thing in my life. I think I have the oldest working Fridgette mini refrigerator on the planet. At least my search on the net has seemed to confirm this.
The little refrigerator was a present from my mom and dad when I attended Southern Illinois University back in 1970. I had it in my dorm room and then in a duplex I shared with two guys by the name of Mark Taylor and Grant Duers. After college it moved with me back to Mt. Prospect, Illinois and then stayed with my parents while I went off to do other things.
Fast forward about fifteen years when I moved to Kimberling City and there it was doing duty behind a bar my father had built. There it stayed until 2002 when my dad moved in with me after my mom (his wife passed). I placed it into my bedroom and there it has stayed (and worked) until the present.
Now, I’m no expert on refrigeration systems, but it seems to me that this little fridge has performed above and beyond the call of duty. Onwards cold dude! You’re now 39 going on 40!
As of 2017 – It’s now in an RV and doing better than myself!
