More truth than you want to admit there Bob.  I, because I can't buy a sink 
bowl for our bathroom vanity (they haven't made that exact elliptical shape 
in years), had to replace the whole thing yesterday in what started out to 
be just a new faucet. $300 & change for a chipboard replacement for a real 
wooden unit now 40 years old.  Real wood would have been special order, 2 
months delivery, and $700.

I didn't even bother to screw this ones back strap to the wall.  I've a 
stock of white ash that would make an outstanding vanity, and the new, 
solid plastic top/sink will not notice when real wood replaces that 
chipboard crap, isn't even fit for kindling to start a fire with, base that 
is the one I just bought.  With a little luck I might get the new base done 
before this one dissolves from the humidity.  I'm only 79 in 3 weeks, I 
should have time enough left to do that. :)

Cheers, Gene
