AIR CONDITIONING UPDATE
Yayyyy. The Big Sweating Truck-Driving Men Who Can Actually Do Useful Things With Their Hands are here installing a "new unit," which means that, if all goes well, before the day is over the temperature inside this blog's house will drop below the 127-degree mark it has been stuck on SINCE MONDAY. This is a very nice present, especially today, which happens to be this blog's birthday. Later on, this blog is going to "Kick out the jams' and celebrate by -- really -- going to the dentist. It doesn't get any better than this!
