Independence Day Blues

Around here, the fourth of July is usually bad news. One year we had a party where we invited a lot of friends to come over, (and some of them brought uninvited guests) and some jerk decided to throw fire-crackers in the puppy pen (full of puppies.) The next morning I found that someone (probably the same jerk) had opened the puppy pen, all of the puppies had gotten out, and some of them had managed to get into the enclosed area of the swimming pool, and drowned in the swimming pool.

Another year, one of our dogs was poisoned and had to be rushed to the vet!

This year, we had a big electric storm overnight, and lost electricity. We awoke this morning to find the refrigerator/freezer was no longer capable of cooling the food. The interior lights work just fine, thank you very much. And our whole-house air conditioner (new last year) is dead as well. And our microwave oven. Naturally we can’t get any repairmen out until next Tuesday at the earliest.

I’m really not a big fan of the fourth of July!

Seeing Your House In The Rear View Mirror

Once in a while you can see a house going down the road, that has been uprooted from its original site and is headed for a new piece of land to be sat back down upon. I can only imagine all the work and planning that it takes to take on something like this and how it must be an interesting task to be involved in. I’ve never known anyone that has had a house moved or anyone who has been involved in something like this professionally. I can’t even imagine where you would start in a process like this and the paperwork involved must be outrageous. I’d be interested to find out more about it.

I understand that it can cost a good amount of money for this house relocation service. But the cost involved can be worth it in the long run. With the use of the Internet you can go online now and get a quote for this kind of service which can be a time saver and hopefully provide you with some good choices to choose from for this service. Can you imagine seeing your house going down the road, it must be kinda creepy like, ya know.

Singing The Air Conditioning Blues

Don’t get me wrong, I love my air conditioner that I have set at a very comfortable 78 degrees. But I don’t have control of other people’s air conditioners nor the a/c that the stores, restaurants and other businesses have that they have cranking out this freezing cold air that freezes me right out the door and quick like. There is nothing worse than sweating like a whore in church in this horrible summer heat and humidity only to go in somewhere that has the air blasting so much that I automatically start shaking from the cold blast. I just wish that they wouldn’t have it so darned cold, that I have to carry a sweater or jacket with me any where that I go.

It Is Only June For Goodness Sake

I was really hoping that we were going to have a nice weather filled summer season this year. After such a horrible winter I think we all deserve a break, but I guess I was wrong, big time. It is only the start of June and we are all ready having way too many days that are in the upper 80′s and 90′s. What happened to the wonderful days of June filled with days of 70 and low 80s that we could do so many fun things each and every day?

Makes me wonder what we are in for come August, ugh…………..
