In Lock Up

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  Late yesterday afternoon, we had a lot of excitement around Ao4 Headquarters.

Just after Mom put a load of towels in the wash, some guy called and Mom said, "Now?"  She tried doing a quick "spin" on the towels, but that didn't work out too well and resulted in Dad carrying a bunch of sopping wet towels through the house and throwing them in the shower.  Interestingly enough, I don't think the towels used the shower ... if you know what I mean.

Anyway, before you could say, "Wait, let me vacuum behind there", two guys showed up at the house and apparently did this:

Ah. Right. Why did I say "apparently"? Well, that would be because I was put in Lock Up! That's right, locked in the bedroom! All alone, away from the action.  So I wouldn't really KNOW, I'm just piecing things together based on what I found on Mom's iPhone.  Where was I?  Oh.  Right.  Locked up!  All alone!!!

Yeah, not so much "alone" as in "with Cammie". And one of my GoughNuts. Oh. And Dad. And the TV and the bed and all. But I was put behind a closed door while there were people in my house!!! Can you believe that?!?

When I was finally let out, this is what I found in the Laundry Room:

A new washer and dryer!

Yep! The Samsung WA8600 5.0 cu. ft. Top Load Washer with activewash™ and Integrated Touch Controls and the matching dryer.  Mighty exciting.  Behold the washer's Diamond Drum:

Oooh, shiny!

Apparently, not the kind of diamonds Mom can wear on her finger or on a necklace, but diamond-shaped drain holes designed to reduce damage to fabric.  Who knew?

My main concern is this:

"Hmm... actually now that they aren't on pedestals, it might be a little easier!"

Can I still get into the dryer like my mentor Mr. Teddy Westlife showed me?  I believe I can.  I'll be sure to do a follow-up on that!

I still can't believe I was put in Lock Up, though.  I mean, what does Mom think - I'd run out the open door or something?  Oh.  Right.  Well ... yeah, I would.  Never mind.  

The Whirlpools are dead!  Long live the Samsungs!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  3. Those guys may have brought a washer and dryer but they stole the cars! See what happens when you're locked up and not able to protect anything! Sheesh!

    PeeS: Our mommy's eyes glazed over when reading the features of the washer and dryer since it's all Greek to her!

  5. We feel your pain here too. We were locked up all day (well maybe just half the day) on Monday so some scary men could come in and put new carpeting in our living room and on the stairs. We tried to bark them away but mom just closed the bedroom door and turned on the TV to we couldn't hear them as much. Our mom thinks your new washer and dryer look very spiffy and wishes hers would maybe croak so she could get some like yours too.
