Summertime

Summertime is heating up, and wouldn't you know it -- my AC has gone out. It got hot Thursday afternoon so I turned it on. After a while, I noticed that it wasn't putting out any cold air. Friday morning, I called the landlord's office and left a message. Nobody's in the office from Friday until Monday, but they did send somebody to check it Saturday. After he fiddled with it for a while, he determined that the whole unit is going to have to be replaced. And, of course, they can't even order it 'til Tuesday. Once they get it -- Thursday, maybe, but I wouldn't bet on it -- it'll take them a day and a half to install it. And naturally, it's going to be 90 degrees a couple of those days that I'm without it. Some girls have all the luck.

Happy Memorial Day, everyone.

Summertime? Heating up? We have a little saying here in Portland:

April showers bring May showers which bring June showers which bring July 4th showers which brings summer...finally!

For sure, Pugsley.;)

I think being without heat would be way worse than being without AC, Skunk. I'm doing okay with a couple of fans, but I sure will be glad when it's fixed.:)

That's Oregon for you, VE. So, you expect summer sometime around mid-July?:)

Happy belated birthday my dear! And thanks for the Joplin treat.

Having come back from the great wilderness of northern Minnesota, where NOT having air conditioning is a badge of honor, I feel your pain.

Sonofabitchin' Blogger! One of these days I'll remember that I need to SAVE EVERY time I try to comment. Grrrrr!! Now I'll attempt to start over and see if I can remember what I said.

Quid, thank you, honey! And you're more than welcome for the Joplin treat. Probably doesn't mean much to young whippernappers, but WE know the real deal when we see it. Hope you had a great MN trip.:)

Good God, Galen! I do have deodorant, you know. That cuts WAY down on those yucky underarm rings. My forehead's a little damp, but that's about it. So far, so good. It's just HOT, not, um, hot.;)

G-Man said...

Hot is HOT!!

Serena said...

LOL, Galen. I suspect I shall be even hotter before the day is over.:P
