Most of my posts are strictly about appliance repair. I don’t spend much time talking about myself, but I want my site to feel more personable so I’m creating a category called Me. In this category, I will randomly talk about things that are going on with me. 🙂 So here it goes:
Last Wednesday was my last day of vacation. I visited family in Southern Illinois. It seems like the usual thing for we to do when we go down besides searching for Amish, is fix appliances. Last year, I fixed my grandpa’s washer and diagnosed a dryer. This time it was my grandpa’s dishwasher that needed fixing. The dishwasher would fill with water, but that was about it. I found that the food chopper housed inside the pump area had what looked like a piece of string wrapped around it causing the pump to cease. I removed the string and reassembled the pump and motor and it was back in business. That repair saved my grand parents at least $75.
Other than fixing stuff, we had a good time down there, life seems to move much slower in the land of corn and bean fields. We drove my uncle’s Jeep in the woods, went fishing, swimming, ate a ton of food, and hung out reminiscing about the good old days when we were heathen kids up to no good. 🙂
When I got back from vacation I finished installing a sub panel in my garage. Before we left on vacation a tree limb knocked out power to the garage. After getting that done, we went fishing for one last hurrah, and my son caught a nice Bass. Check out a few pics:
