R.I.P. 1978-2013 Whirlpool Dryer-
Sadly our big girl finally passed today. Dave's Mom had bought a Whirlpool dryer back in 1978. Yes 1978. We were gifted with it in 2001 after she wasn't doing much laundry anymore as her husband had passed away. Well, it finally died today. After a few repairs over the years, new belt, etc. and drying for a family of five (lotta laundry!) she finally went to the great appliance place in the sky. It was sad to see her go. After taking her to the dryer hospital, and being told it could be all kinds of things, we decided to let her go sadly. Dave went to a big box store and bought a new dryer for a good price, much less than complicated extensive labor and parts. With allergies we can't dry our clothes outside, since that works as a pollen magnet. I've read about people with severe allergies, and chronic colds drying their clothes outside and I cringe. That's a big no-no from allergists. Oh well. Our old girl went to the recycling place down the street. Maybe she'll come back as a toaster and find a lovely new home. Now if I only had a laundry room....

I don't need that much room, but I'd love to get my washer and dryer out of the garage!
