I saw the truck

It's here!

Update: ah, a thing of beauty is a joy forever:


(Not uploaded until now -- 8:35pm -- because I had to run out the door after the installer guy left, and I've been running ever since. I am seriously thinking about taking a month off after my last day at the job. Speaking of job -- I hope the next one I get pays better than this one. I am tapped out -- I was able to get a few things at the grocery store, like food and detergent, but that's it. Fortunately, it is my birthday tomorrow. Hint hint...)

I definitely like the looks of that, and if my water heater ever blows up and I can refit this place with one of the tankless variety, there's probably room in that very cabinet for this laundry pair. (I have a washer and dryer, but they're outside in the garage, which has its annoying aspects in January.)

In a previous apartment I had a full size washer and dryer -- in an outside compartment off the patio. That year happened to be the year of Hurricanes Charley, Frances, and Jeanne...

Of course, an inside machine wouldn't have worked while the power was out either, so my weather story isn't exactly concurrent. Change it to the agony of having to go outside to do washing in the Florida summer, which is kind of like our winter, when we stay inside as much as possible unless we are sports nuts.

Ah, the heady pleasure of owning your very own washer and dryer! Having gone through 3 sets since 2001, with at least one major break in between sets, I feels for ya!

Two set were at least second hand, possibly as much as fifth hand, but I wasn't worried about the pedigree, so long they worked. This last time, I bought a brand new set. I have the room for full sized, so I indulged myself even more.

The fact that my resulting carbon footprint is bigger than Gorezilla's power bill is merely gravy.

I like it! Got my first washer & dryer when the (almost) Bride was about 7 months old - we lived on an island in Maine - we could DRIVE to the laundromat, but it was 12 miles to the closest one, over 2 lane blacktop, & it was a Maine winter. I haven't been without one since. And the next one will be just like the one in the picture. Once the Bride & her Groom move on, I won't really need anything bigger. I hope.

And Happy Birthday, Andrea. I'd hit the tip jar, but the wedding's Saturday & I still haven't paid for the munchies. Sorry, will try to send something when I get back to work & all the people leave. Have a wonderful day, anyway, & thanks.

Oh don't worry about me -- just have a good time at the wedding!

That looks exactly like mine, from Sears! Knock the wood on my head, it's still working like a pro 5 years later. The washer/dryer, that is. My head's been wonky since birth!

It's a Whirlpool, and so far it's done about six loads without a problem.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
