But, Lord, It's Not Even Lent Yet

Yesterday my dryer died.  (Be careful what you wish for.)

Today we shall find out if this elderly friend still has any life left in her, or if she has permanently left us for the greener pastures of Appliance Heaven.  I may be shopping for a new and expensive thing on this Fat Tuesday.

Not the way I'd choose to celebrate Mardi Gras, but, hey, we take what we're handed, eh?

It happened to us, too, but after the repair man told us that the 20 year old machine was not worth fixing we realized that the vent was blocked by snow and also full of lint. We hear that this is not uncommon, so give it a try, I hope that you can have an easy, free, solution like I did, though now I am shopping around to be ready for the inevitable final load.

Thanks, Mary Alice -- we took a look at that yesterday, and nothing seemed to be blocked. The motor was shot. :( We'll have a new one here soon ....
