In the end I purchased a May Tag washer and dryer. I didn't even consider May Tag during my research. You never really know what is in store until you get to the store no matter how much research you've done.
I've always believed May Tag is reliable and dependable. A message I got from the many years I watched May Tag commercials as a child. I've posted just one of their many old commercials for you in case you are unfamiliar with them.
Initially I was going to purchase the Whirlpool brand. Whirlpool and May Tag are made by the same company and I thought May Tag machine looked to be better quality of the machines I was checking out. It comes with a great warranty and I purchased an extension to make sure any labour repairs will be covered for the first few years. I think I will be more than happy with the machine.
On our way to check out laundry appliances, we took the wrong turn on the highway and ended up in a place called Horseshoe Bay. This is the place where the ferries depart to various destinations on the smaller islands around these parts. This is also the departure point for the big ferry over to Nanaimo located on the much larger island called Vancouver Island.
We decided to stop for lunch at a restaurant called Trolls. I've been wanting to have fish and chips there for a very long time. It was a spectacular day and the food was delicious. The bonus was we got to sit outside and enjoy the air and the view. Afterwards I crossed the street to take these photos to share with you. Unfortunately I just had my phone camera. Thank goodness for phone cameras.

It wasn't all rosy and light today. Earlier I had notice that Grandma Sally is not doing too well. The doctors don't hold out much hope for her and the family members have been asked to visit. Grandma Sally has been in hospital for about 2 months and most of that time has been spent in ICU. I pray for her healing and comfort but her advanced age and length of time she has already been in hospital make it unlikely she will get strong enough to return home. Only God knows for sure though and I try not to limit him. My fervent hope and prayer is for Grandma Sally's comfort.
