I Can Conclude . . .

When daughter number three, (who has a great sense of humor and who will appreciate this)  moved from her appartment to living in the sorority dorm (because she is the EVP of the chapter) a few weeks ago,  there were lots of things left over that her mom, my wife,  brought home from Alabama.

Upon Arrival.   Gee, I wonder if that has anything to do with it.?

Upon Arrival. Gee, I wonder if that has anything to do with it.?

One of those items was a vacuum cleaner that reportedly was not working so well.

Not often am I inquisitive about such things, but I have tinkered with multiple vacuums during my life and feel comfortable doing so.

It took nothing more than a look to diagnose the problem, as illustrated in the first photo.

From this, I can conclude that three, college girls shed almost as much as our four, black labs.

I can conclude that they take their dental care seriously and floss regularly, often leaving the used dental floss on the floor where it gets sucked up by the vacuum cleaner. (or snagged in the brushes)

I can conclude that regardless of how smart you are (all three roomates are very, very smart), unless someone teaches you certain things, you don’t know what you don’t know.

I can conclude that I failed to instruct my daughter about checking and caring for these types of appliances.   

I can conclude that I have identified another use for dads.  

I can also conclude that things have not changed much since I was in college.

Good as new.

Good as new.

    I have housekeepers at the funeral home who have been working for me for over 10 years and I still have to do this for them on a regular basis. And the rumba my wife had to have for our house looks like this too. I stopped trying to get everyone to solve these kinds of issues on their own long ago and have accepted that part of my purpose in life is to just fix it and smile.
