A blessed All Saints Day, Gerbil Nation!

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, Hebrews 12:1

Good morning,

Rain made an appearance overnight out here in SoCal. Not much, but at least half an inch in our area, which means I don’t have to water.

And today is Mrs Sven’s birthday! The old broad is still asleep upstairs expecting me to do all the cleaning, cooking, and bill-paying this weekend. And she’ll probably want to be taken out somewhere and I’m sure she expects presents. Women…

Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

Sven

Happy birthday, Mrs. Sven!

Saturday afternoon greetings from slightly-chilly but Happy Larryville, GN!

And a most Happy Birfday to Mrs. Sven…who could get to work and back much faster if she had a car like this:

We only had about ten “customers” last night; perhaps the blustery weather had something to do with it. Or our reputation from last Halloween:

OK, the trick or treat poster is funny.

Rabbit, Mac, and Tex all live in Texas. Without giving too much away, around which towns do you all live?

Mrs Sven has FINALLY gotten out of bed. Me, I’m on my second load of laundry, have just mopped the kitchen floor, and am waiting for Mrs Sven to get off the phone so I can vacuum. Sniff.

Thanks for the bday wishes--I’ll pass them on.

RabBiT is in the DFW general area (as is Mac). TeX is in the sticks about an hour north of Houston -- give or take a bit, or a lot.

Noticed the washing machine was smelling like a belt was over-heating. Took things apart and learned that the transmission is gone. Carp! That means a new washing machine. $550 for the transmission and a lot of work or pay someone $125 to do it for me, but at 30 years old, it just isn’t worth it. The appliance parts place I rely on recommended getting an older machine. They said the new ones are junk and just don’t last. Double carp!

When I read the online reviews, I find lot’s that mention things like failure to drain completely, low spin speed resulting in wet clothes at the end of the cycle, high noise level, easily gets out of balance, leaks, and early failures of the main electronics boards. Things like that do not inspire confidence.
