Do you know what this is?
Tonight was the time! My computer says defrost the refrig. Tonight as I defrosted I thought: Just a few feet away in our new house is a ‘frostless refrigerator’. I washed dishes tonight also and I thought out there is a dishwasher.
We are not ready yet. I love this Motor home set up. Right now, I can sit here at the kitchen table and see my girl get in bed and I can go back and tuck her in (I like that). Then later I can see her ‘sleep reading’’. Everything is handy.
But it really wouldn’t be convenient to be in the house during bathroom construction. It is going to be a messy, dusty job for a couple weeks. Once I get that in, just maybe we will move in. I did say Maybe. LOL
Have you ever owned a ‘frostless’ refrigerator? Of course our first three or four refrigerators were not frost free and had to be defrosted. Sherry and I shared the task. I look back at the ones mama had after 1948. Before that, we had the ice box. I remember each week mama put a sign in the front window telling the ice man how many pounds of ice she wanted. The card had several sizes and the one she displayed on top was what the ice man brought into the house and put in the ice box and mama paid him. I never knew what she paid for a 50 lb block. I am still curious.
Those are 100lb blocks. One side was scored in 4- 25lb sections. The ice man would use his ice pick and separate the sections in seconds. If a kid was lucky he could have the chips. Nice on a hot day!
Anyway I have watched mama use a butcher knife to break the ice off the Ice section of the refrigerator. (She would not let me eat the chunks, said it was not good for me.) That section is very vulnerable and the butcher knife could have punctured the freezer unit and ruined it. I don’t think that ever happened because she knew how delicate it was. That was before hair dryers. Now I use a hair dryer that I bought at a yard sale for 50¢ to defrost.
Mark just dropped by to stay in the Darnell Motel. I told him the rates are reduced due to construction. I have started the process of moving the bedroom door. Lol.
