No matter how many time I try to defy stupidity it seems to smack me in the face. I was doing laundry (last minute) before a trip when I noticed a pile of old, smelly painter canvas in the corner. I thought, “Huh, I should wash and dry those so they don’t get mold.” It wasn’t a bad idea, but I shouldn’t have stuffed the massive canvases in our moderate size washer and dryer.
Fortunately, the washer was okay; but, the dryer? Wasn’t damaged too bad, just messed up one of the baffles. When things like this happen I have to make a decision:
“Do I fix this on my own or do I get some help?”
