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.

I hope the tests go okay and are bright and early so you can have your coffee....that is always the hard part for me too....when you can have nothing I always swish water and spit it out...dry mouth doesn't work for me...the first thing I do in the morning is drink water and then move on to two cups of coffee then water all day.....addicted to water.....LOL  we are already up to 79 degrees another day to work inside....thunder storms every day  one at 2 am woke me up and we got lots of rain....it has been a strange rainy seasons....dryer then usual....have a good one and hope you get your car parts....

Morning Kitty.  Upper 60s here at 5 AM so warm early.  The no coffee, no water, test is past.  Next one I can drink black coffee. I've lost 33 pounds so I know the next tests will be best ever.  I test my own glucose so I know it's down to almost normal.  Still have to improve so I can stop taking the 3 meds I have for glucose.  My blood pressure is down to 110/66, so almost a low pressure.

I got some digging done with the backhoe yesterday but stopped early to help my daughter.  Ground is dry so I need to get a lot done today, tomorrow is 60% chance rain again. 

My daughter has a water leak, was lucky, only had to get vise grips on the bolt and tighter a nut to stop it.  Had two rusted bolts she needed to get off, she had the dremel and the discs to cut bolts, she just hadn't ever used those.  Another problem we solved easily.  She had spent the whole day building a chicken coop so she was worn out.

I was trying to cut down on coffee and replace it with water but I stopped losing weight because I didn't make it work.  So increased coffee again until I lose more weight, then try it again.

Have a great day Kitty, hope you're almost done with packing.
