Passing along our Skills

I can practically feel your nice warm, dry, hands!

So the rep that posted never came through on your machine Phelan? Too bad. Something that new should not have broken. Or did you not follow up?

Oh well, I guess it "prepares" you for your next adventure.

I can't wait to read the next year - it is going to be so interesting and exciting.

Phelan said...

I think she was merely an in-between for the company. I got a hold of her, and gave her the info, and she passed it along

I thought I would give them a few days or so after the new year before I started bashing them on the blog ;)

Husband has plans for a washer for the farm. A one of those stay tuned for this event.

We won't be able to get out to the farm until spring. The snow just keeps piling up, and me sans truck, ah well soon. . . soon

We tried passing along the skills of cleaning animal stalls to our niece and her friends. Well...our niece still comes over, but not her friends.

I wouldn't begin to bash the woman that came over to try and help - I was surprised that you received that comment and was wondering. So she passed along info and you haven't heard anything?

I think would be a good idea to be proactive to get your washer fixed. [I also offered to help] I will say it again - the washer shouldn't be broken if you had no fault in it and you should be in contact with the company now - it is just 3 years old. Heck my mother in law just replaced her washer that was 27 years old and we used my folks washer for 10 years after they gave it to us and it was already 15 years old.

Probably a good idea the weather will be a little more forgiving before you move out to the farm. I would hate for you to try to deal with Mother Nature when she is at her height.

PS - please don't say "They don't make things like they used to" heehee...we buy all our appliances off of Craigslist and they work wonderful and are old. And cheap. :)

Hope the snow gives you a break soon! Hard to do much when it sticks around.

Nothing ever comes easy, does it?

Phelan said...

I was kidding Skippymom.

Our washer before this one was 30 yeas old. The only reason we got the new one was because my father wanted to buy it for us.

We once had a similiar model of washer in the clawfoot tub model. Worked good the first few times then began a rapid decline. Those two are very careful with the clothes today.

I remember washing laundry in the bath as a child. My sister and I would be *in* the bath, trousers rolled up, walking up and down on the clothes. Worked a treat!
