3 loads of wash which had to be dried at the Laundromat after I found that there was no heat working in the dryer. Did some banking and picked up and applied fertilizer for the lawn. Food shopping then diagnosed and ordered parts for the dryer repair. Made an surprise trip to the Vet to pick up meds for my older dog who has been found to have an intestinal parasite, UHG! Snuck in an elliptical session and roped my car off for a front brake job tomorrow. Beer me.

I fixed the broken heater element in the electric clothes dryer. Total cost was $33 and I that included extra parts that were in the kit but I did not need at this time. Fairly easy job but the only hurdle I hit was getting the heat vent tube back on the back of the dryer. What a PIA. Obviously Whirlpool must have found out this flaw because every video I saw on Youtube had a better designed set up for that pipe on the same machine that was easier to reinstall. A number of cuss words later all is good to go. Beer me!

Yesterday, I dug-up the septic lid. I didn't know exactly where it was or how deep. A couple hours and a couple feet down, I found it. After, showering and spending an hour or so to cool-off, I went ahead and ordered a riser kit so I would not have to do this again. What a PIA!

Now to get the honey wagon out here to pump it.

Bravo!

One of my many jobs, was appliance repair.
With dryers it's usually 3 things. 1.Heater coil, 2.thermo hydrostat-both easy- or 3.timer. If it's the timer, might consider a new one.
