Here they are, the clothes washer and dryer that we started with back in 2001. The washer has met its end. The dryer is up on Kijiji and the new machines have been ordered, scheduled for delivery July 13.
It is kind of odd, but it is possible that the machines I just ordered are either the last, or more likely second to last clothes washer/dryer that I buy in this life time. At 15,713 days old, I still have a way to go, but in another 7700 days I may be fortunate enough to move into a place where my laundry is taken care of by others.
Gives pause for thought, certainly.
