Exciting news - "Ranson, West Virginia" has just outed herself in Thursday's comments. Welcome, 6.pac.mom! I'd link to her, but she doesn't seem to have a blog. And yet more exciting news - Larry installed the used dishwasher for me. It was gifted to me by my recently deceased friend, in a manner of speaking; her daughters had to replace all her appliances in order to sell her house. I am convinced that this dishwasher will work out, as it turns out that my friend bought it on MY BIRTHDAY back in...oh...the year 2000.
It's not old, it's experienced. Besides, she didn't use it much - just to drive to church on Sundays...
Never mind that it seems to be creating a puddle when I run it. I can just mop that up. The bar, it has been lowered around here, I'll tell ya. Also exciting? I used one of those cute little square dishwasher detergent tablets instead of the traditional powder. What fun! I never would have tried it, but that's what my friend used; and I don't want to make any changes that would destroy the magic. It cleans dishes! And dries them! Without bickering! How amazing is that, anyway?
