    Just a little help for my male friends

    OK, guys, . . . here's the scoop.

    As soon as your wife complains about her dryer making a loud squeaking sound, . . . go get 2 or three buckets of hand tools, . . . couple flashlights, . . . a hammer, . . . and a bottle of 80 weight oil with a squirter tube attached.

    Pop the top off the dryer, . . . pull it out, . . . unplug it, . . . open it up, . . . vacuum it out, . . . bang on the back where it won't hurt with the hammer, . . . have your wife hand you at least 6 tools, . . . hand one back each time she gives you a new one. Don't let her see you put the tool into the dryer back, . . . it'll give it all away.

    Then squirt about 6 drops of oil in the little hole in the dead center of the back, . . .it'll have black dust and oil around it to show you where it is.

    Go get a doughnut and coffee, . . . look industriously at the book from cover to cover, . . .

    Then go back and bang on it a couple more times, . . . put it back in place, . . . and go get another cup of coffee. If she asks, tell her, yeah you are done, . . . she may pick up the tools and vacuum the place while you are drinking that coffee.

    The go back in and fire it up, . . . smiling that the screeching sound is gone.

    You'll also be the hero of the year at your house.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    I have been the "hero" bout 4 times so far....then actually had to replace that wheel. $10 part, and fairly easy...but the oil extends it about 3 months at a time. If I had a press I'd just get a new bearing and press it into the existing wheel (about a $5 fix)...but i'm lazy like that.

    Lol, gotta love you long term married "dudes." Even when I was married it was never an easy fix. Lucky men should just appreciate being lucky. Lol.

    Last time I did that with our dryer - that I just changed from natural to propane, I shorted out something and we had to buy a new one!

    Peace,

    Thanks Pastor Dwight,

    Been lucky with Dryers unlucky with other stuff so I guess it all evens out in the end!

    Any advice for married men of post menopausal women? Asking for a friend...

    I find beef jerky work pretty well on Mrs Inor. If I say something wrong (like every time I open my mouth to say anything), I just give Mrs Inor a piece of beef jerky. Then I can usually get 1 or maybe even 2 sentences in before she tells me I am wrong.

    Remember to tell her she's still beautiful.

    Yeah, I used to be mister fix it. These days, I call a guy and it's fixed in 20 minutes. Sure, I am out 200 bucks but I have a happy wife and I haven't spent all freakin day bitching and moaning while running back and forth getting parts for a damn dryer I should have replaced 2 years before. It's the same reason I don't work on my own cars anymore. Maybe I have more money then brains, or maybe I am just getting plain lazy in my old age, or both, but I am not spending my weekends under a car swearing or taking dryers apart no more.

    Besides, these days the hero in my wife's life is her pain meds and her doctor, and I am cool with that. If I am to be the hero, I would have to follow her orders and assassinate every insurance company and healthcare system bureaucrat on the planet with extreme prejudice, I am cool with that as well.

    My wife loves drama, when I fix something around the house, the more dramatic the better, I gives her a feeling that I actually accomplished something......
