Arrgh! My watch band broke. Where was the receipt? Found it. Purchase date, April 22nd, of the current year. Warranty disclaimers had more holes than the Titanic.
Went to the place of purchase. They were more helpful, than expected; temporarily fixed the band, till the correct pins arrived by mail.
The worn-out vacuum bit the big one and went to dead appliance Valhalla.
Much to do before escaping for an extended weekend with friends. Did I mention the riding mower battery failed before mowing the lawn? It failed to hold a charge–four-years old. It’s been hard to keep ahead of the broken stuff lately.
