Crazy today's suckage was so universal....

My day didn't suck.

I got a free lunch at Salt Grass Steak House.

And a call for a showing tomorrow.

EDIT: Well, there was that 2.5 hr convocation that made my butt sore from sitting on metal bleechers.

so Poof - is your out-of-town family visit this weekend for any special occasion?


No. My sister has a rental cottage next door to them and their renters moved out a month or so ago. Since it's empty, son asked if he and family could come up. They did this a couple years ago, although it was both sons. So we're going, too. Supposed to be kind of rainy and cool, so I don't think there'll be much swimming in the lake. On the other hand the lake is really warm this year, so maybe.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

Just from scrolling through them. Maybe when I post them, they'll look right.

It's not supposed to be hot in PA, but really humid Thursday and Friday. And my sister doesn't have a/c. I don't deal well with humidity.

I type a search word and a bunch of text comes up. Then I have to go through them, just like 4. Although, they're not grouped as well.

Pick up a window AC unit on the way up. They're on sale this time of year anyway.

They're very energy efficient these days. Look for an energy star one. Then give her a $20 for the bill.

The first summer after we moved to WA, ex kept going to the thermostat to turn up the AC because it was such a hot summer (for up there). Hated to break to him that we had no AC. Very few homes there had central AC. We bought a window unit for our bedroom. We put central AC in our house years later.

When I was growing up no one had AC. Didn't need it, they said. My sister is still saying that, but I'll bet at least 75% of the homes have it now.

Edit: And to be just a tad catty, she's put on some weight and isn't nearly as cold as she used to be.

When hubby's reletives came from down south on vacation, they couldn't survive without the AC.
They went to the Catskills and couldn't sleep!


Even after we got it, my mom would come in and shut it off.
Her theory was you only used it to cool down the room before you went to bed.

I will admit - I can't survive well without A/C.

After college on a trip to mexico we met a group of NYC police officers also on vacation. We had a big discussion on what was more important in a car - a great radio or A/C. All the TX folks said A/C. The NY guys said a radio.

I'll bet those rooms got really stuffy.

The subway was awful before most of the trains were air conditioned.

The subway station at Rockefeller center was renting a store right near the steps to a cookie shop.
The oven vented right onto the steps.
I decided that having to walk through the 100 + degree heat made the subway platform seem cool.

The first thing we bought when we got married was 2 air conditioners.
I think we may have put them in before we even had a bed.

We went down south for a wedding over thanksgiving once and they didn't have heat.
Damp and cold was not a good combo!
They had it, but the didn't know how to turn it on.
It was a furnace under a grate in the middle of the hall in the center of the house.
Really crude.
This was an old house in New Orleans.

A lot of the houses in NM where my mom lives have evaporative cooling systems. I'm still not completely clear on what that means. Except it is controlled with the thermostat, blows out vents like central A/C, but the system has to be changed from heating to cooling by a professional at the beginning of the season. it's either heat or cool, can't switch back and forth

Edit: I'm going to bed. night all!

Time to take the peepee walk.
And talk myself out of buying a Thomas the tank engine for myself.

You know, for the future grandkids.

NO ROOM!

Son comes home saturday
Leaves Australia today I think.
I wonder what the cat will think when he gets back?
Cat has been sleeping in our room at night.
Tried to sleep on the bed, but he likes to scratch things and I don't want my blankets destroyed even a little bit.
I bought him 3 things to scratch. Why can't he stick to them????

We thought about central air this year. The two big AC's both needed replacement.
Decided to keep the window and wall units.
