Morning Kitty.  We have 3 window ACs.  Want to put in central but don't want to pay a company to do it.  I'm certain I could do it and the systems are much less expensive than the installation companies charge.  Probably why there are so many AC and heat companies.  A person has to pay one of them to charge it with Freon after he installs it though.

We were really hot when we were in the Army in a little apartment, was only one window and the door that were screened but we were younger.  We borrowed a window AC unit once but it didn't last only a month or two.

I have to go to the Vascular lab today to get the results of my tests.  Not doing to much when it rains every day.  Today is the first day it shoots up towards 90 degrees.  We still have rain predictions, not sure if the low pressure is still spinning over us today or not.

Good luck with packing and try to have a great day.

Installing your own AC would be a big job....Brian would want to do this too  a do it yourselfer....altho lately he has been changing up a bit.....we have repair people coming to check the wires outside for our internet service...they won't come in (virus) but our problem for the last couple of weeks is the internet cuts out several times a day and is out for 1/2 hour or so   very annoying to say the least...we have moved our closing date to the 30th of July that way it will be a bit more certain that all will paperwork will be signed...we still plan on leaving the 24 if all goes well.....wish it was that day and we were on the road....have a good day...it is sunny and 81 degrees and 81 humidity....

Morning Kitty.  Another beautiful day.  Looked at the doplar radar, like I do every morning, shows that low pressure still spinning around us.  So our little rain patches are still coming from the north.  I thought it had moved off shore.  Hope no rain today, we need to dry out so I can dig some more.

Replaced a relay in a used signal enhancer I bought and it worked.  Told my wife it was a guess so good chance it wouldn't work.  Bought it used from an older man near Orlando at the end of Winter.  He can't hear very well and has disappeared off the air.  To bad, he enjoyed himself and was much more knowledgeable about antennas than I am.

Your time to leave Sanibel Island is coming up quickly now.  Will be nice to cool down a little though.  Can't believe my wife's parents and brother's family made it there a few years back.  Was before we retired though.  I hadn't pictured you in a large group of houses, thought isolated.  I have your real estate ad bookmarked on Zillow.  I didn't have the $529k or so to spare,  smile

Have a great day and stay cool.

if you didn't have a car to work on you would be lost....yes the time is growing short...I was thinking yesterday we haven't even made it down to the beach to say goodbye....it has been too hot and the bike needs a new inner tube...but we must at least get there once to say goodbye....it is so peaceful and beautiful there....so onward with the packing...a couple of closets today....winter clothes and the other as office stuff and sewing basket and other odds and ends stored....besides a container of special cards from the kids...do I have to throw those out??  that is the question....it is 84  already...23 days to go....

Morning Kitty.  Looks like a nice day.  Rain on the radar but it falls apart before it gets here.  Doesn't seem like you have to throw anything out if you don't want to.  I have lots of cards from my wife and kids.  But I never have to pack them.

I remember you writing you had gone down to the beach shell picking.  Very few times in my life I could write that.

We are waiting for parts for a defect in my wife's car.  It's a buzzing sound that comes on for a second and then it's gone.  They say it's the clutch to the transfer case, where it goes to all wheel drive.  We think it might have been caused when that lady backed into it parked at the drug store.  Still under warranty.

My Subaru Baja has a leaky transmission seal where the front wheel half shaft goes into it so going to have to replace that soon.

The signal enhancer is a piece of ham radio gear.  That's why it sat for a month or two after I had the replacement part for it.

Is getting hot here but in the 80s, strange but getting into the 90s a little north of us.  It's like the equator was north like Australia.

Have a great day.

it is 82 here already....and no rain as far as I know ....just got up and am having my first cup of coffee...I threw out those  cards    didn't make any sense to pack them and then store them in a closet..... did lots of packing and picking up trinkets and put them in the spare room to be packed...I am already tired just thinking about it....might take the day off...think Brian needs time off....and yes I was an avid sheller which had to stop a couple of years ago....so shells were packed  lots and lots...don't know what they will look like in CT...I used to compete in the shell fair here and won lots of ribbons, how do you leave that behind....?  onward and upward...have a good day Ernie....

Morning Kitty.  I get ads for your island on Facebook with pictures of shells.  They look great, don't know if I've ever seen such colorful shells.

I can't imagine us packing up to move.  I'm afraid it will all fall on our daughters after we are gone.

We didn't do a lot yesterday.  Got some new birdseed for our bird feeders, on sale for veterans.  Still have lots of small birds using the one I keep going during the Summer.  End up feeding lots of mice, chipmunks, and some squirrels.  Sometimes one of them gets trapped inside of the church bird feeder.

Brandy and I will get out on our walk a little early today to beat the heat.

Have a great day Kitty.

Morning Kitty.  It's 63 here at 5 AM so it's a warm day.  Summer doesn't last that long here in NY, have to enjoy it while it passes quickly.  Ground is slowly drying, still water seeping out of our banks.

Haven't found the oil leak in my Subaru Baja yet, will keep looking.  We have to phone the dealership about our Rav4 parts today, been a couple weeks.  I've never found a car dealership that was completely honest.

I found a couple digital phones while I was cleaning the basement cleaned them up, charged them, and connected them into the phone wired system I got for my parents old 1957 bakelite phone.  Many calls we try to make have a menu and can't navigate a menu system with a rotary phone.  We both have cell phones but they drop calls from our home.

Trying to clean that one part of the basement a little at a time.  It generates garbage and I don't want to much at once.  You must be getting lots of garbage with your packing. 

I have my blood test and dr appt next week.  Just had the ultrasound appt.  At least a year away from next ultrasound.  Stent is in place a not leaking, they said.  I don't like fasting like everyone.  I guess I can drink black coffee with the blood test.  Can't even drink water with the ultrasound.

Have a great day Kitty.

Ernie
