I used very similar words as I explained the problems to my best friend.

Better now than in winter when opening the doors to do the repairs could give our house birds a unfortunate chill.

I think everything (except the AC) will be repaired or replaced sometime soon.

Thanks for your positive thoughts, hermetic.

That's 3 ...

Turned on the heat to dry out the excess moisture in the house due to July 23rd flood under the hot water heater.
Furnace started screaming. Shut the breaker (this shit is getting old). I'll call the gas company tomorrow. We have a service contract. Maybe this will be a small problem (small repair $$$ bill).

July 23rd https://www.democraticunderground.com/1018970554 Hot water tank cracked. Need a new one.

July 10th https://www.democraticunderground.com/1018966035 Central AC cooled for the last time.

Cold shower time

The hot water heater leaked all over the floor. Needs repair.

Carpet will need to come up due to mold. Wall paneling may need replacing. Flooring didn't 'feel' soft when I tested it with a screwdriver.

Local heat index today 105. I brushed out the dog's fur. She hates being hot.

She is a good companion. I rescued her back in 2010. Let's hope she makes it through this summer.

I'm so upset about what Photobucket is doing. I uploaded very old photos there.

I can't re-scan those 40 year old prints with the equipment I have now.

About In_The_Wind

Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. ~~~~~~~~~ For, it ends in the blink of an eye. Carpe Diem (Seize the day)!
