The dryer broke this weekend, but unlike when its inefficient and water wasting partner broke down, this time I didn't get my hopes up. Nope, no heading off to the Lowes website shopping for a shiny new washer/dryer set because I knew my resourceful and mechanically inclined man was going to fix it. See, this ancient and inefficient pair are rather like the equivalent of a classic car...before the advent of complex catalytic converters or computer controlled fuel injectors. Mechanically inclined men can just run out to one of those ubiquitous junk yards and find a replacement part, hunker down, get greasy and fix the ancient hunk of junk.
Sometimes it stinks having a mechanically inclined man. ;)
