Serviceman came with new transmission and fixed our washing machine Thursday morning. Thank goodness. It's been a week without washing and although we don't need good clothes, bath and kitchen towels and washcloths are about out. Yes, we could wash them by hand... but don't want to do that unless totally unavoidable.
It cost almost double what the 2nd hand Maytag cost us years ago. But since we weren't going out to shop for a new one... fixing it was the practical choice. Besides, I think the new ones would have been a lot more (and no, I'm not going to check... what's done is done).
Oh, and our excursion to curb side pickup at Central Market turned out to be an especially easy experience. We pulled into the side of the store where they had parking all set up with signs saying to text this number when you arrive. Then they come out and view a sign you hold up with your name on it (don't even have to open the car window), go back in and retrieve your order, put it in the back and wave! Really easy. The only difficult thing is getting a 'time slot' for pickup.
Working on under-glazing cheeky chicken flock... 2 injuries reported... both to wing area.
|see tape with red cross on 2 wings?|
Wings can become unattached very easily while still in the greenware stage... as the clay dries, careful handling is necessary. Apparently I wasn't careful enough. But with a little slip and patience, they should be alright to get through the first firing.
Now I have a blogging question:
Some comments to my blog come through in foreign languages. When they show up in the 'comments awaiting moderation' section, I don't know what they are saying so I just don't post them. I know that Blogger has a translation app for the posts themselves, but can it be used on the 'awaiting moderation' section? I don't see any way to do it, but then I'm not particularly technically inclined. So if you know the answer, I would appreciate if you would let me know how to do this.
Hope you are all staying home, staying well, and staying safe!
