Today, My crock pot died

Today is a sad day.
I woke up at my normal 3 am, and figured I would throw some stuff together in the crock pot for dinner tonight. I pull out my "newer" crock pot. The one that you can program for 4,6,8, or 10 hours, that switched to warm, etc. etc.
I cut up my potatoes and sausage, make my cream of cheddar soup, pour it on top, plug in the crock pot, and nothing. Won't turn on. I move it to another outlet (the one that just ran my coffee pot). Try to turn it on, and nothing.
Sooooo, I then pull out my 20 year plus old crock pot. You know the one with a dial for off, low, high. Mine is chipped, the lid is chipped, a handle is missing, but when I turned it on, it turned on. So time to transfer from one to another (one liner is oblong long, the other round).
Now I must have a moment to mourn the loss of my crock pot. Before I give the base to my youngest son. He likes to take things apart. Deconstruction he calls it, and another son calls it reverse engineering.
And I have to price a new crock pot.
As for my old one, it just keeps going and going and going.
