This morning, the noise changed, and the fan froze up. So, in the middle of a remarkable heat spell, we're doing without the AC, at least for one day. Cross fingers that the repair will come off as planned.
For the first time in weeks, the temperature was in the 90's instead of the 100's, but the rain that visited Central Texas has visited everywhere but here. I suppose once the AC is fixed, our chances for moisture will be improved.
But probably that will happen after nearly $1000 has vanished without increasing our savings, lowering our bills, or even being blown on a few smiles. I'm inclined to believe that money is an elaborate fantasy that we've all bought into. But you can all thank me for doing my part to improve the economy by putting more cash into circulation.
