Sometimes a washer does more than clean!


A few times in one’s life we find ourselves in a complete rut. Mine came most recently because of a ‘later in life’ crisis. It came on about 72, when I came to realize that there weren’t that many years left and as a personal thing I internalized it, and so the mostly physiological problems began.

But it was my washing machine that brought it all into focus. One day it worked fine, the next day nothing. It was totally dead and at three years old it was still considered somewhat new. That really sucked, but it brought all my personal troubles into sharp focus. Everything breaks down and you don’t know when! I should have been focusing on that fact for most of the now 72 years, I’ve felt pretty much OK. The poor washer (a GE by the way) had two major breaks in its short lifetime and it cost me both times. Lesson learned – !
