You know how crap comes in threes?
1) Dishwasher--the kids are learning a new appreciation for the term "dishpan hands."
2) Swamp Cooler--90 degrees in the shade? How about 90 degrees in the HOUSE?
3) Computer--I'm currently posting from my daughter's netbook which she guards jealously. My computer will have its harddrive formatted this week, which will hopefully solve the problem. Until then, The Slushpile Avalanche is in a holding pattern...
But don't worry. One way or another I'll be back.
