ever wonder what happens...

When the dryer tube at a beach house hasn't been cleaned out for a while?

This:




And not just one clump.  Multiple clumps.  Do you know what happens when sand is heated over and over again?  It forms a solid mass -- unbreakable.  We tried. 

As you may have guessed, things are dried much quicker now that those rocks are gone.

p.s. doesn't my sister have lovely hands?  she should be a hand model.  :)

it was too crazy seeing that reminder of the 5 hours we spent moving, cleaning out, repairing, and replacing items in the laundry -- but this item was the KICKER!!

Wow, Shari - I can't believe that was in the dryer... I'm glad you were proactive and found it! :) Love you!

Gross and fascinating! Is this your beach house? Or do you just live that close to the beach?
