Completely Unexpected . . .

We woke up to something completely unexpected this morning, something we haven’t seen in almost two weeks.

A bright sunny morning. Even Mister wanted to go outside.

Still cold, at 39 degrees, but bright and sunny anyway. And it should stay that way for the next 10 days or so.

Of course the same people that are telling us that, originally told us that it would be cloudy and rainy for the next 3 days,

After a nice morning Jan and I headed out about 2pm for some errands and dinner. My first stop was at a client’s office to take care of some orders, and then I walked across the street to a friend’s Heating & Air Conditioning office. He only does HVAC now, but used to do appliance repair as well, and I thought he could give me lead on getting a replacement thermal fuse for our dryer.

My friend sent to another place that he thought might have it, and those people sent me to a third place who didn’t have it.

Well, they didn’t have the exact part, but I did find a substitute that I think will work.

New Thermal Fuse

The only difference is that it blows at a slightly lower temperature, which should work OK. We’ll see

Our dinner stop was at Jason’s Deli, our favorite soup and sandwich shop. We’ve eaten here for years and always enjoy it. Jan had a 1/4 Turkey Muffaletta and a cup of Broccoli Cheese soup, while I had my usual Southwest Chicken Chili. Always delicious.

Next was a stop at the house to pick up our mail and a couple of packages, and then it was on to Wal-Mart for a few things.

Finally getting home a little before 7, and after we got things put away, I installed the new part in the washer/dryer and put the top back on. I’ll install it tomorrow morning.

I did do something different this time that should help me get the washer out easier next time. I fastened two straps to the washer inside the top, one on each side.

Dryer Straps

I will pull them down the back and under the washer, and leave them out of sight underneath the front of the washer. Then the next time I have to pull it out of the cabinet, it should be a lot easier. Time will tell.


Thought for the Day:

  1. So if the purpose of the 2nd Amendment is for citizens to protect themselves from the Government, shouldnt citizens be allowed to own the same arms as the Government?

  2. Paul,

    Yep Sounds good to me.

    And in the Revolutionary War era, they did.

    Many, mostly rich landowners, owned their own cannons and commanded their own small armies.

  3. Now that’s funny!
