I'm attempting a short post here, so please excuse the point form.
-Last week my washing machine died.
-What repair guy in his right mind EVER says "You're best to buy a new washer, dude."?
-Turns out October 2006 is my 13th. anniversary here in this particular Turtle Shell.
-Is that why the washer crapped out? Maybe.
-I decided to buy new - this being my... FIFTH washer in the same 13 years.
-Time to go shopping... washing machines are $600 to $2500 CDN Ouch.
-Top load, start, stop... I'm good. $600.00. (I need not fly to the moon with a full-sized window to watch the planets go by!)
-New washers are light. This, too, pleased me. I guess having met with success lightening Hide-A-Bed sofas, why not try it with washing machines too?
After getting it downstairs, the rest was a piece of cake...
...doesn't match, but who cares?
I read the instruction on the peel-away plastic, but felt so warm and fuzzy over a NEW washing machine, I've left it in place, just for now.
...and just for the record, this is the inaugural load.
I love that word, inaugural
1. of or pertaining to an inauguration: Harding's inaugural address.
2. marking the beginning of a new venture, series, etc.: the inaugural run of the pony express.
3. an address, as of a president, at the beginning of a term of office.
4. an inaugural ceremony: to attend the presidential inaugural.
