Small Maintenance Tasks Now Fall to Me

A fan stopped working. It was frozen; it needed cleaning and oiling. It’s something Ken used to do each spring and I forgot about it. Until the fan didn’t work. So, I took off the plastic screens and cleaned them

Then it was take off the fan blade and clean it.

Put down newspaper, clean the frame and wipe dust off the motor

Get some oil in that joint

And on the other side

Replace the blade and check; sure enough, it works

Replace those cleaned plastic screen covers

Put the tools back in place, clean up the table and put the fan in the window. Like the Little Red Hen , I did it all by myself
