March 14, 2008 – Mud

I had to get the truck out of the shed to fetch a new appliance this week.  It wasn’t a good day to drive out of the shed.

The soft ground makes me leery to drive off the gravel, unless I have to.  It was the dishwasher that died, so we used it as an opportunity to get a more energy-efficient  model and to try a new brand – Bosch – as I haven’t been impressed with the trio of Frigidaires we put in when we moved in.  Linda asked in an email what skills it required – here’s my answer – “Skills?  I have skills.  Mainly heavy lifting, swearing trying to get it into a cavity, and hooking up water, drain, and wires.  And a lot of laying on the floor in puddles of water. That’s about it.”
