The Bag Lady can do laundry again!
She picked up the part for her washing machine on Tuesday afternoon and called the repair company to set up an appointment. They told her the repairman would call her on Thursday morning between 9 am and noon to advise her when he would be coming to her house.
Naturally, as soon as the clock struck 9 am, her phone started ringing..... and did not stop! Between friends and relations and ranch business and museum business, and even a fax (which uses the same phone line), her phone was busy until 11:30!! Fortunately, the repairman was persistent and he eventually got through.
He arrived on her doorstep a short time later and immediately went to work replacing the latch. Then, because the door still didn't seem to be closing properly, he replaced the hinge. Voila, the door closes perfectly, and latches properly. The hinge was slightly bent, causing the door to close improperly.
The Bag Lady waited over 48 days for a 20-minute appointment, but she can finally do laundry to her heart's content.
In other news, the Bag Lady purchased a camera for the museum, so spent a little time on Wednesday getting acquainted with it. She took this photo of her yard:
When she awoke on Thursday morning, her yard looked like this:
The Bag Lady thinks the camera takes pretty good pictures, and is impressed because when you click to enlarge these pictures, they aren't grainy. (go ahead, click. she'll wait.)
Hope you all have a great weekend and aren't missing her too much! She'll pop back in soon.
