Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

Hot August (July) Night

Neil Diamond, anyone?

We've had three thunderstorms in the last hour and it's still hotter than blazes out there. Think someone moved Hell to Ottawa. Hmmm. Or maybe just woke up to something here.

Slow, but I get there, eventually. Only took a few decades...

Delivered all the photo stuff to Mom, and she was de-lighted with the results. Still have more to go but that will have to wait for another time. On the way over the garage door opener broke. I mean BROKE. Called one company and got a lecture (as in "yah I do emergencies but don't feel like it") from the first number 411 gave me, so called another. That lovely soul came over and informed me that (a) the manufacturer (Stanley) of my opener is no longer in business and (b) the replacement part is $500 ish (forget it). He unhooked the opener from the door so at least it could be operated manually for the weekend. My instructions--replace it at a non-Rolls Royce price please on Monday (am still off then).

Then off to get present for wife of Boy Wonder with Mom. Mom had very hard time walking in this heat, so I escorted her to a seat and found presents and cards, got us lunch (2:00 pm ish). Delivered photos that had been working on for last few days to Mom's house, ate lunch and delivered presents. The screen door was locked, so had to leave the presents dangling from the newspaper holder thingie attached to the mailbox. So, if someone steals the presents, it will be his wife's loss, certainly not mine.

Why would anyone lock a screen door? Have any of you out there ever done this and if so why?

Just curious. Let me know.

Have to do major dusting....later!

    I heard it was 40C there today. As I'm sure you know (because I've said it here so many times) I DO NOT miss the climate in that city AT ALL.

    Lovely weather here. Unfortunately, where I'm going in the interior it'll be hot, but at least dry.
