The Dryer - Day 3



Star Log: 9:44am. Thursday, May 29th...

I'm calling this Day 3 of 'no worky dryer'.. since, on Tuesday I broke it (cleaning gum out of the drum!), Wednesday I opened it (after heavy duty research), and today, is Stage II of Repairs & Maintenance Research...

Last night I got home about 8:30 pm from my trip to Boise, and this is what I came home to - the photos above! No fixy. More research...

Today's 'extra' task:

How does the loose found doomahicky that the dryer belt goes onto actually get assembled with the loose belt found dangling around the drum????

Answer (from today's research):
The doomahicky name: Idler Pulley

And, the belt gets wound through it, and onto another funky part, and around the drum... and the pulley itself gets put into some slots on the bottom of the dryer case a ma jig...

I am so darn proud of myself!

But - I am 30 minutes late on the 9:30 lamb feeding! And still in my jammies!

Gotta go!

You are amazing! I would never even attempt that. Brave, brave woman.

If it was legal I'd hogtie your husband for making you go through all this. But then again, we Campos gened women tend to find men that make us do things ourselves. Is that our collective independent spirit rising and them knowing more than us?! Tis a puzzlement. Anyhoot, I'm proud of you. Karen is right. We got Grandpa's blood allright and he'd be very proud!

lol...okay so I'm reading backwards.

YOU ARE SUPERWOMAN! You feed lambs, raise kids, ride Mr Deere, and tear apart home appliances! You rock!

I'm with Dawn, did you find the socks' black hole in there anywhere?
