Well...whirlpool happens
Thursday, August 03, 2006
Had a couple of other fixes I needed to get done this week so I've had to put Operation Pooh on hold. Unfortunately our washing machine is acting up and I had to have the control panel replaced on the outside spa. That darn washing machine really pisses me off. It's one of those Whirlpool Calypso machines that when we bought it four years ago was like $1,000!

Now you would think that paying that much for a washing machine with all the high tech features it has it would work perfectly right? Think again. The machine constantly gets things (lint, a SOCK) stuck in the sump (which filters the water and drains the entire system). I've had to take this thing apart and clean it out 3 or 4 times since we've owned it. Very poor design and will cause me to avoid Whirlpool products in the future.

Anyway, I digress. Tomorrow I expect to finish the second coat of the trim on Operation Pooh and then on Saturday start with the lower walls (the earth color as I'm calling it). By Sunday, the second coat will be on but I have my finals I have to give to the Accounting and Statistics classes I'm teaching next week. So I'll probably be working on those as well this weekend (as the paint dries).

But that means more free time so I expect the upper walls (sky color) to be done on Wednesday and Thursday next week, with the clouds being done the following weekend.
