Thanks. We will be on the lookout. Weatherman said this morning all we were getting was about 2" of rain, but nothing severe in level. But that was this morning and came from the weatherman, who only needs to be half right and still keep his job.

It was almost as fast coming through here as the storm that ran through the GC... no damage here at home - but several places around Dallas were hit hard...

The size of the closets practically guarantees mold in unseen places.
If we are honest with ourselves, when was the last time you washed out the washer and dryer with bleach? These articles are designed to shock and amaze you.
Everyone justifies their choices.
I just wish they wouldn't imply, as they did in the article, that your germs are better than mine. The one thing the article did point out, dryers have increased the bacteria in your laundry. Hanging clothes outside kills all bacteria because of the ultraviolet radiation.
That all being said, once every three weeks sitting in a laundromat is enjoyable. Read a book and people watch. Its very entertaining, and a very economical use of time and resources.
How's that for a counter argument?
HA !! Well Dave it only has to satisfy you! And truth is - to have a washer dryer or not in your RV is a silly debate to me. Don't have it - Don't miss it. Great. Whyfore and whynots are as you say, a choice.

I will say that while I'm not a germaphobe by any means, I do prefer my germs to those of others. I am more concerned these days - after getting the swine flu this year while working from home. I am not a recluse - but I'm not out in public nearly as much as I once was and yet I was really sick from something I caught somewhere. Now - 15 miles down the road from me are a 100 or so people exposed or potentially exposed to ebola. Again - I don't fear germs or much else really, but the times, they are a changin.

I will add - in winter the washer got the pink stuff - in spring it got the clorox. It's how we roll...

FYI, it is impossible to get swine flu from bacon or laundry. Not sure about bourbon, pork chops, or smoothies.

On the other hand I have five fingers.
But before the drying cycle there is final rinse. Which leads me to my main point: if you find a whistle in the street, don't blow it. A pig may have left it.

Have you imbibed the bourbon or are you feeling especially "punny" today?

I'm pretty sure he said he had 5 fingers - just didn't say how many.

Tootsies Bar. You can hear some great C&W music played live and people watch on the sidewalk tables. I can't remember what that entertainment district is called but it is very lively.
