The Sears store (very small one, just tools, lawn and garden and appliances) in Guthrie, just up the road from me a ways, is closing on the 25th of this month. The landlord raised the rent on them, and they said they couldn't afford it. So, they had 40% off everything. I can't believe I did it, but I bought a new front-loading washer and dryer set. I think Lance can't believe it either, since the old ones were still working; but we got them home, put in, and tried them out. I think I'm really going to enjoy them! So, now we'll be selling a washer and dryer set to the highest bidder...probably either my sister-in-law or a friend who could use them, or else Lance will put them on e-mail at the station.
