We didn't chat long, as her call came just before dinner time there (at least one time zone behind the Ranch) and just after dinner time here. Both of us had things to do.
So now the biggest current problem on the Ranch needing (relatively) immediate attention is the non-functioning washer. Until I've some time to try diagnostics, or Herself gets home and someone's there to greet a service person, that's on hold. It does mean I'll need to hit a laundry mat this weekend, though. Only for the washing; I'll use our own dryer.
