Hey, if that headline didn’t wake you up this morning, have somebody take your pulse. You may be dead!
Well, I guess I’d better explain it, before you all start getting really ugly mental images that will make your waffles and Corn Flakes taste bad.
We have a Splendide washer/dryer combo in our Winnebago, and even though Miss Terry is constantly cleaning the water filter and pulling small bits of lint out of the exhaust vent on the outside of the motorhome, it has become plugged up. The airflow is seriously restricted, and it is taking much longer to dry our laundry.
We bought a flexible vent tube cleanout tool that has several lengths of extensions and different brushes and fittings that screw onto the ends, and working from the outside, were able to get several clumps of lint out. But the air flow is still not what it should be. The next step may be to figure out how to access the back of the washer/dryer, and remove the vent hose and see if we can make any progress from that end. Interestingly, Greg White is having the same problem with the dryer in their American Eagle motorhome.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there. Even though my own dear mother has been gone for twenty years, I still miss her every day. She was quite a lady, a plump little woman who bore eight children, and outlived five of them but never lost her sense of humor, or her ability to see the joy in life.
To give you an idea of what my mom was like, here is a link to a Mother’s Day blog post I wrote a couple of years ago. I’m sure you’ll get a chuckle out of it.
Yesterday we spent most of the day working inside, me on the computer, and Miss Terry logging in all of the orders and subscription renewals that came in our mail the other day. The registrations for our Ohio Gypsy Journal Rally are starting to come in on a steady basis, and it looks like we’re going to have another good rally. I hope you’ll join us!
We left the RV park long enough to run to Sam’s Club and WalMart with Greg and Jan, then we had dinner at Famous Dave’s Barbecue. The food was delicious, and we topped it off with a stop at Dairy Queen for dessert.
Today we’re taking Miss Terry and Jan to a Mother’s Day dinner, and then I hope to come home and take a much deserved nap. When I wake up from that, I think I’ll just spend the rest of the day being lazy and loafing around the motorhome. 🙂
Thought For The Day – It’s not easy being a mother. If it were easy, fathers would do it.
