Miss that Laundry Service

Two weeks ago our washing machine started making more noise than usual.  The decibel level had been increasing with each passing day and finally reached about 150 decibels - the same as a jet engine taking off.  We couldn't even hold a conversation in the adjacent room.  And then of course - the washing machine died.  Dead.  Done. It is not even that old.  Washing machines used to last forever!  Not any more.  I wasn't prepared to buy a new washer.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres wasn't prepared to buy a new washer.  So the washing machine was carried outside and Mr. Yesteryear Acres began searching for the cause of its early demise.
When he got to this phase - it was clear - no more laundry would be taking place for quite some time.  Thankfully our daughter Amelia has been bringing our laundry to her home every night, washing it, and returning it nice and clean.  I have to say, I have enjoyed her laundry service!  Puppies make a lot of dirty laundry and every morning the laundry has been returned all clean.  Like Magic! 
Finally Mr. Yesteryear Acres found the culprits.  Time to order new "whatchamacalits and flux capacitors".   
Once the parts arrived, Mr. Yesteryear Acres made quick work of reassembling the washer.  It is now whisper quiet and our clothes are super clean.  Only one problem......
I really miss that Laundry Service!
