To Buy a Dishwasher?

To Buy a Dishwasher?

We've been wondering how long we can get by before we buy a dishwasher. It seems like our only real reasons for putting it off are lack of time to shop for one and lack of space for the microwave, coffee maker and toaster oven, whose shelves would be displaced.

Maybe we would be overlooking an opportunity by putting our dirty dishes in a dishwasher, though. Buckminster Fuller often spoke of synergy. Maybe we should just let Bucky the cat do what comes naturally and benefit from the synergy of cat feeding and dish scrubbing. A large part of Bucky Fuller's life's work was about changing our lifestyles to conserve resources in order to afford ourselves better lives. Maybe Bucky the cat (pictured) is more like the man he was named after than we ever knew.
