Yesterday I noticed my zipper’s inscription:
I’d seen it before on many other zippers, but hadn’t put it all together.
And I wonder…did a zipper company that now owns a large part of the zipper market begin marking these YKK around 1999? Does it stand for Y2K? Are the zippers made out of the same sturdy material as FBI saferooms? (No wonder these pants were so expensive!)
And what a bummer that would be if there was a WW3 and only my zipper made it through unscathed.
You’re looking at your zipper, aren’t you?

A new insulin pump—I’m working with my insurance company to receive a new pump. Mine is out of warranty. Pray that the insurance company will offer me trade-in value for my current pump (not a given).
Also, pray for the $1,000 I’ll need to cover my portion.
A praise is how long I’ve had this pump. Usually diabetics have to trade in their every three or so years. I bought mine five years ago (with a free upgrade thrown in after one year by the pump company). So God has given me extended use. I’m grateful for His very clear provision and how helps keep me a healthy diabetic!
