This And That

We finally got our new couch and loveseat. The old couch was badly messed up. It was 30 years old and looked it. The love seat is still in good condition and will go out to the covered patio. We are having a problem. The two pieces are much taller than the old ones. It is like climbing a mountain. Mom is not helping us by putting something down to help up climb up.
We have been having very hot temperatures here in Florida. Yesterday the electricity went out for about 5 hours in the heat of the day. We did not get it back until 7:35PM. Mom was not a happy camper. Our air conditioner and fans are on all of the time. Some of the ceiling fans were in the house when it was bought in 1983. She said that she was afraid that they would never go on again if she hut them off. This was disproved yesterday.
The new toy is still alive and well. Never saw that coming.001002

    Ummm… Why did your mum buy you a lounge that you can’t get on to…? It’s almost like she DOESN’T want you to sit on it… Hmmm… That wouldn’t be right… Would it?

      Macy’s does not allow dogs in the store. It was not my intention to buy something that they could not jump up on. I’m sure that they will figure it out.

      I admit to destroying the couch with my over zealous cleaning of the leather when someone spilled something on it. The dogs were not to blame.The fans started up again. The original owners of the house bought most of them. The house was built in 1977. I think that they and I got their money out of the purchase. They just don’t make anything as well any more.

      We had no electricity for 8 days after Hurricane Wanda. This was nothing compared to that event. I will not be without my air conditioning. I’m on my fourth whole house unit.

      It is a rare occurrence with outages. The worse was hurricane Wanda in 2005 or 2006. We were without electricity for 8 days. Luckily, the weather was not as hot as Sunday. The dogs will figure it out. They still have two leather recliners for sitting.
