Well, for the third time in 4 years my dryer wasn't working. Before, my handy hubby always found a way to rescue it and extend it's life. Well this time it died. After messing with it for 45 minutes he came to me and said, "Were you praying that it was dead?" I laughed and said no, I hoped it could live on so we didn't have to buy another one.
He is off to the store to buy some clothesline for outside and indoors, because it has been raining just about everyday here for the last few months. Guess laundry will be taking up my time a bit more now :)
Meanwhile we're scanning ads for used dryers. The one we had was used and it's probably 20 years old. It served us well, we put it through some hard use, and it gave out.
This always happens in the summer.
