Good evening everyone

I am feeling more human today...getting better every day

I did the grocery shopping this morning, bit tired from all the driving, but just resting up this evening...looking forward to another good sleep!

trying to decide if I should bother waking girls up and taking them to school. The driving is a mess.

Anyway .. time for a new dryer
Folks never give a thought to the vent that goes to the outside on their dryer. It gets clogged with lint just as much as your filter does. It should be cleaned out at least twice a year. Lint is highly flammable.

And air conditioners. I don't have a furnace; I have baseboard heaters that I leave on.

I'm trying to wake up enough to get going on work. I better enter the stuff from the Danish Club Luncheon while it's fresh in my mind. There was enough craziness yesterday...

That is so true Addie. We clear ours every 3 months. I also replace the vent hose at that time .. vac out the shute where the lint trap goes and wash the lint trap to remove the residue from the dryer sheets.

There is a switch inside this dryer that failed .. it was to control the temperature .. it didn't work and the heat was so intense that it melted a belt .. when we pulled the cover off the back there was black scorch all over the place .. yes indeed .. we were very lucky !!

Hopefully all of you will take a good look at your vent tube and lint traps .. make sure they are clean.

I'm about to head for the cat food store and the health food store. I want to get in anything we need for the next few days. I don't want to go out in the snow that is supposed to start overnight.
