Pocket Pool


Laundry is one of my favorite chores. It's much like vacuuming. I get almost an immediate result.

And yes, before my father come to live with me I would usually do it in the nude.

So when I had a washer full of a completed load a few days ago and my dryer would not turn I was just slightly pissed. Don't you hate getting held up in the middle of something? But it didn't take but a couple of inquiries on the www and I felt I could fix the problem myself.

Washers and dryers are so easy to take apart. Just a couple of screws hold their outer casings together. It's a wonder they make it from the factory to the place of use in one piece. I didn't find a terrible amount of lint below the drum but found over $3 bucks of change. How it gets out beyond the drum seal I have no idea.

At any rate, after buying a drum belt for $18 the only difficult aspect of the job was getting on the floor and wrapping the belt around the pulley under the drum. Thankfully, problem solved for now at least. I know a new washer and dryer are in my near future but I want it to be on my own terms please.

Late Bloomer

I'm like an old woman:when the weatherman predicts a frost and my roses are blooming in abundance for the first time since early spring, I've got to pick me some.

Model Behavior

Chair:Before & After

Paul & Andrew

I haven't seen the Falcon Studios video but they look a bit too much alike for my taste.

Almost Perfect

What the hell is it with the under counter curtain like that of a 1920's farmhouse? Otherwise, I love the sterile look of white on white.
