Keeping it real
One of the temptations of blogging is to be less than honest about my screw-ups.
The clothes dryer did not stay fixed.
We bought a new one. Mrs ERJ informed me that Mother Maytag did not put the hinges on the correct side of the door for how our laundry room is arranged.
Today I fixed that problem. Twice.
I had it all put back together when I realized that I could not find the large screwdriver I used to hold the two halves of the door apart so I could file out hinge clearance in the side moldings.
Yup, sure enough. I had reassembled the door with the screwdriver between the inner and the outer. I considered leaving it in place for Mrs ERJ's amusement but decided I may need that screw driver in the near future.
A failure is just a side-excursion unless you give up. Then it is a failure.

I could tell you how I know, but I'm not a blogger, just an avid blogee.
A mistake is just an excuse to practice fixing it again. I get lots of practice on some projects!ReplyDelete
