Yeeeeee-haw! We just hit the Kansas lottery for $600,000.00! So what if it wasn’t the grand prize of $3.5 million, we’ll take it! First thing is that Becky can quit work. Second thing is, maybe I will, too. Or not. Heck, I don’t know. I’m too excited to think straight. Maybe take that trip to England and check on the relatives over there.
A couple weeks ago the dryer stopped. It was unresponsive other than a slight hum from a non-turning motor. Called the appliance repair place. The guy showed up the next morning. Took it apart, had a look, pronounced that the motor was seized up and it’d cost at least $150 to replace and install. He didn’t even ask if I wanted to repair it, assuming I’d rather replace the dryer. Hands me the bill for his $38 service call, which I pay, as he’s recommending that I check out a certain appliance store over by Wal-Mart.
