Peanut Butter Fork Cookies, Gluten-Free

I haven’t had the use of my washer for a few months, right? Wilson tried to fix it, the one guy, Vicente, the only washer guy in Vilcabamba, never came out. And while the guest family was here, I came home to find that Jim Royer, my neighbor and guardian fixer for everyone’s mechanics in Vilca, had taken the part. He stopped me on the road to say he took it to Loja, got the part, and would put it in Saturday. Which he did, ANd cleaned all the little filters on my faucets, whoa. Oh, my gosh. Just in time to clean all the sheets and guest towels. Now, don’t you be calling Jim for help!
