    I ventured out on Black Friday because I needed a new washer and they were on sale. It wasn’t too bad. Everyone was fighting over the big TVs. Washing machines aren’t glamorous

    Even more so if it’s a coin op washer, dryer, or one of those old seats from bus terminals that had pay TVs built into the chair arm.

    Briatollah — Washing machines aren’t glamorous???


    Why, I do think Orin would beg to differ!
    He seems to fnd them quite fetching!

    Essex…. did you come round the turn?


    I posted to you at the last second of yesterday, inviting you to the Tiki….
    in case you didn’t see it….
    please stop by if you can!


    Hope you don’t mind this… it’s for Beviek…
    Is this what you were trying to do, Bev?

    Can’t stay up too late…. I’ve been doing too much and I need some sleep….


    (Of course, if I only had a nickel for every time I’ve said that a few hours before dozing off in my chair at 3am…)


    But I’m SOOOO glad to be able to get to Ballard St from here…
    I have to get a connecting bus first, but at least, here I am!

    Gotta get over to the Tiki and make sure the night crew is all right…
    Grind a few Daiquiris if anybody’s waiting….

    Any music going on tonight?
    Anybody up for a friendly brew?
    A wee dram?
    A chat by the fire?

    Hey, Essex i’m turning in now, but if you come back and hang at the Tiki Hut and find you want to stay overnight (the barstools are pretty uncomfortable after a few hours and even the booths aren’t conducive to a good nights sleep) you can stay in one of the guest rooms at my Carriage House. The key is under the flowerpot. Make yourself at home. The fridge is loaded with all kinds of Thanksgiving leftovers! The beer fridge is under the island. Susan, you can stay also, you know I have a special room for you, but I suppose you’ll stay in the salon. G’night!

    @beviek

    I bought a washer last week, but it hadn’t been delivered. I saw a similar one in the ad for $150 less, so I went to the store and made an exchange.

    @SusanSunshine

    I don’t picture anyone buying a washing machine as a Christmas gift for someone.
    (Okay maybe Ralph Drabble would do it.)

    Bev… cool.


    Hey, about Orin….
    I know we disagree a little…
    but I’m not so fast to condemn other people’s back yards….

    Live and let live, I say.
    It’s not a public nuisance …

    no one even knows about it who isn’t snooping.


    Besides, if a few appliances keep him happy…
    we won’t see another embarrassing incident like when he crashed the ladies’ bridge club and drum corps meeting last April…..


    You remember…. when Sarah May Jenkins wore that Majorette get-up with the big silver buttons…
    and Orin tried to twist her knobs…

    Bri…. gosh, I don’t know..
    washing machines gratefully accepted here…
    for Christmas, my birthday, even Valentine’s Day…


    Especially if it comes with space to put it.

    I tried to buy some extra space at a garage sale…they had plenty in the garage…
    but it wouldn’t fit into my car.
