Maytag Man returns

Neptune has been snacking on coins again and decided to snarf down a Vermont state quarter. He wasn't able to pass it, so Danny once again had to take him apart and retrieve the offending money from his innards.

This is the second time since June that Danny has dismantled Neptune. The other time was due to a small misunderstanding - I have recently developed an obsession with Mrs. Meyers Clean Day products. You really must try them if you can find them, I have been ordering them on-line, but my local grocery store carries the laundry detergent. In Lavender and it smells soooo good.

Apparently Neptune has an aversion to Lavender, perhaps he's allergic to it, because it causes him to scream SUDS, SUDS, SUDS on his little LED screen like he does when he has overinduldged on coins.

Danny was here alone and started a load of laundry (can you believe it?) and Neptune started whining and moaning about the SUDS, so Danny took him apart to take the money out, but alas...there was none! I had learned through trial and error that Neptune could only handle only so much of the Lavender (not as much as the label called for - else he kinda wanted to upchuck). Dan was totally confused.

Neptune is coin free once again, back to his basic Tide and happy for the moment, we'll see how long this lasts.
