I Have Air!

It was hot and muggy yesterday. The pool was afloat with swimmers. I need to mention that the pool had just been filled with ice cold well water. We have a fire hose that delivers the water straight out of our deep well. I was stuck inside the store with a ceiling fan and a small floor fan pointed in my direction. I looked at the thermometer on the wall next to my desk and at one point it had reached 89 degrees in the store. I was sweating buckets and twice told love of my life that I was dying in here. He did not respond to this and I couldn't leave, because I was so busy. Finally I was told by a camper that the Hershey bars were limp and melting............

He sprung into action. Wife is hot, too bad. Melting chocolate.........well, that's another story and calls for action. Unfortunately he was side-tracked with a leaking faucet and a sewer back-up. But morning came along with the window unit for the store. He brought it up to the front of the building, then left to go to work. He said he would install it when he came home tonight. Eugene took pity on me and put in in the window and I screwed it in place. Plugged it in and it tripped the breaker. I still had a fan in the window and it wasn't as hot as yesterday, but I was still bummed out. Eugene was not to be defeated. He took the unit apart and did something involving my blow dryer and a new plug along with some help from Pat. I am cool as a cucumber.

Eugene is a keeper. The hubby??? I am undecided.

Most men don't worry about fixing something until it starts to affect them.....or we start bitching at them.

Wow, that Eugene is handy. A hairdryer? I agree with Hit 40 - he's a keeper!

Glad you're cool - I'm really crabby when I'm hot!

Really, now, can't have the chocolate melting. Glad you've got Eugene around.

Good for you! Now you'll be comfortable. And so will the chocolate . . .
