I now have a washer and dryer that I can actually use. Nothing was wrong with them, they came from the old house. Just an attachment hose was leaking and needed to be replaced on the washer and there was no gas hookup for the dryer - which since it's a gas dryer was a problem. Fortunately I have a cousin who's a plumber and Herb was here this morning to fix all of that and take a look at my bathroom that I want to remodel to work up an estimate for that. So now I have a stove to cook meals on and a washer and dryer to wash and dry my clothes in. Ah, modern day conveniences, you don't miss 'em until they're gone...and then you realize how lucky you are to have them, to be able to afford them etc.
