"Happy Anniversary, what would you like?" .... "I think I'll take a new washing machine, please."

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

[in-aw-gyer-uhl, -ger-uhl]


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.

Hi Dave,

We broke down and got new appliance last year, and I'm still in love with them.

Some new that works a whole year later priceless!

i think since there is water involved, you should have said "maiden voyage"

by the way, i have that same washer, and i also left that blue stuff on for quite a while....i'm weird that way. i don't like my things scratched up or icked up. even a washer.

That's a lot of washing machines to go through! In any event, enjoy the clean clothes! ;-)

I'm on my 3rd washer in 14 years but this one seems to be doing great.

I do a lot of laundry.

Clean laundry good. Having to shell out the money for a new machine, ouch. Hey wait, that was kinda funny. Shell out the money, turtle guy. ha. Well, it made me laugh. Hope it's working well for ya!
