We had our washing machine fixed today. The timer was shot, and it wouldn't go into the spin cycle. It works now, probably better than when we got it.
In other news, the price of digital slr cameras has come way down from when we bought that first one at the Gauntlet. The one I'm thinking of getting is down to S1050.00 + memory card and extra battery. I get the feeling that the whole thing would come in at less than $1500. Which is a lot more realistic than the $4000 the gauntlet spent two years ago.
I guess that I just have to save up my pennies, or put it on the credit card while Tracie isn't home.
