Melted like butter !!


Melt down


Poor old air-conditioner finally died. It kept me cool last night. Because my handyman, David, was due at eight o’clock, I turned the A/C off when I got up. Seemed like the sensible thing to do!! ~~ An electrician (“Woody”), and an RV repairman/handyman (David) worked their magic but the thirteen-year-old A/C didn’t respond!! Guess who is melted like butter? ~~ I’ve begun a search, on-line, for new replacement and (not surprisingly) RV A/C is expensive. Even more expensive if I purchase from a local RV dealership!!

Since I started this message (at three), I’ve watched the temperature climb to ninety-nine degrees. I expected to see one-hundred degrees but a cloud passed over and the temperature dropped down to ninety-seven. >>>>>Oops!! Three thirty-three PM and the breaker tripped and the A/C fan stopped.<<<<< I hoped I could survive with fan on A/C and two small fans strategically located in the living room of my trailer home. ~~ My CARE family will provide for me. I can sleep in the CARE multi-purpose room tonight?! >>>>>Reset breaker at 3:33 but it clicked off again at 3:49.<<<<< But (like the words of  a Christian chorus “I’ll not be defeated!!” (You haven’t heard the last of this story.)
