Yesterday, the air conditioner made a loud sound , followed by a squeal.
Like the sound in a car when a belt is loose. I had to shut it down. Fortunately, it was only about 90 degrees. Today the little man will come & hopefully fix it.

BW left a message for Eddie the floor guy to finish up our closet.
Hopefully, one of his little men will come and fix it.

I don’t mind little men coming to the house to fix things, as long as they aren’t little green men.

Friday salutations from Happy Larryville, GN!

Mornin’, RabBeet; hope all of your little men show up.

Hi, Sven!

Did Jerry say he screwed the trim?

Is he rabbeting teh joints or using a dado?

Delete “maybe” and BrendaK would concur with that particular sentiment.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning RabBiT, Sven, and Fatwa!

Is he rabbeting teh joints or using a dado?

I think Jerry’s doing the work himself. I don’t think he hired an Italian carpenter.

Hi Paddy!

Off to work guys; some interesting developments at that place-I’ll try to do a little update over the weekend.

As Miss Harper would say: poof!

Hope those are positive developments…at least wherein Sven’s concerned.

(Even if they ain’t, be glad you’re not the Senior Technical Writer for OClusterfarkCare. I’ve read many opinions by folks who seem to know far more than I about IT who believe that next week, the gummint will roll-out the most Brobdingnagian FAIL! in computer history. And when the “exchanges” are added to the equation, possibly the largest public sector screw-up EVAR.)

Oh, for crying out loud!
The AC man came & I turned on the air so that he could hear the weird sound. He took off the cover, removed the filter & found the problem in about 2 seconds. It was a long sheet of foam plastic wrap that was part of the flooring packing material.
I guess when they took the vents off, it got sucked up in there somehow.
BW & I felt like idiots. She had looked in the AC, but didn’t take the filter out.

The AC guy told us not to feel bad. He had a customer that was a surgeon who didn’t take the filter out of the plastic wrap before installing it.

And since he was only here for about a minute, he charged us half-price on the service call.

LOL at myself!

GOOD AFTERNOON/EVENING EVERYONE!

Greetings from perfectly wonderful Bountiful.

I surely do hope y’all are having a wonderful day, ’cause you just know I am.

I just finished ripping and cutting most of the trim for the sunroom. Wow, the cPVC lumber is easy to cut but very messy, unlike sawdust, think static cling.

Tomorrow I Tyvek and begin to finish the exterior.

UNBELIEVABLE! I’ve just been informed that I won tonight’s Caption That! caption contest even before it began. I would like to thank all Gerbils who would have submitted so many crappy captions; allowing me to WIN! I do look forward to next week’s contest, y’all.

All this talk about Rabbit and BW and their having wood and carpet has got ol’ Jerry very excited. I thought they were exclusively into carpet but knowing that they also are into wood is just so…

As Kirk would say: seek immediate medical attention if that thing lasts longer than 4 hours.

Teh Older and I visited the tasting room of a local craft-brewery. The beer was outstanding. A mobile wood-fired pizza place (food truck concept) had set up outside. The pizza was just the thing to go with the beer. We are happy campers.

Drive-by:

RabBeet --

Glad your AC problem was something simple (and relatively cheap).

How are your new floors???!?

Far better than having his service call turn out to be worthwhile…for him.

Indeed, Mac; heh.

Jerry --

Teh yay for making good progress on your sunroom!

All this talk about Rabbit and BW and their having wood and carpet has got ol’ Jerry very excited.

Thank goodness you were wearing a bathing costume in that picture…as opposed to others of which we are aware.

Paddy --

Glad you and Teh Elder had a pleasant beer and pizza interlude.

==================

Teh children left just a few minutes ago. The Mongolian Beef was deemed acceptable and…

*Buffs nails on front of shirt*

…I won at smashmouth Monopoly. (Although it was a near thing; at one point, I was pretty sure that SiL was gonna kick all our asses. However, my conservative fiscal strategy ultimately prevailed.)

What are the rules for smash-mouth Monopoly?

Per ClanK tradition, that badically means “friendly yet relentlessly no-holds-barred with a soupçon of loving intra-family competitive viciousness”. 😉

Was actually pretty fun as all of us, including teh ten-year-old Elder Favorite Small Relative, tend to pissantry.

When I was a kid, my brother, one of our cousins and I used to love playing Risk with Dad, despite the fact we nearly always got our respective asses handed to us by the old man. Even if we all teamed-up against him.

But we admired the efficient and crafty ruthlessness of his playing. More than once, he said, “How can anybody not like a game where the object is to take ofer ze vorld!” (The italicized bit spoken in a comical and menacing Deutsche accent.)
