  •  Good job duckhunter. We need more like you in this (4+ / 0-)

    world.

    This heat is unreal isn't it! Never seen it like this. Maybe it's just me but I think the air even smells strange. I sure hope we get that rain they are talking about.

    •  thanks. the heat does have a scent to it......... (4+ / 0-)

      i think it's because it's so dry.  kind of like dry grass?

      lynn is the lady who needed the ac.  earlier this evening my neighbor who lives accross the street from lynn came over and offered to pay for half of the ac.  her name is lavada and i told her we're square.  

      today, lavada's husband took lynn's old ac for a ride to the repair shop/dump and told lynn it couldn't be fixed.  they took lynn to home depot and she bought a bigger, portable unit for her front room.  it's on wheels so she can move it into the closet in the fall.  lynn had asked lavada to ask me if she could put my spare in her bedroom since i'm not using it.  lavada had called lynn earlier and told her i said it was ok and then sent her husband over there to put it in.

      we're all cool, now. ;7)

      I'll need some room for this...

        Again, good on you, and the other neighbors, too.

        Tell the people you love that you love them when you can. You don't always get another chance.

        •  i do too. it's working out beautifully........... (3+ / 0-)

          i get to know some really nice people.  lavada was just a bit more tha an "howdy neighbor"; we'd say hi to each other but never spoke much.  her husband, nicknamed "boot" for reasons unknown even to him, is a really swell guy that i'd only seen a few times.  lynn is with it, not like i thought.  lavada tells me she takes the bus everywhere.  lynn learned how drive late in life and was never very fond of it.  boot thinks that if lynn could have gotten an ac on the bus she would have.  lynn just needs someone to look out for her a bit, probably no more than anybody else.  someone to say. "hey lady you need an air conditioner, let's go buy one."  lavada is a teacher and is around for the summer.  she is going to start stopping by lynn's whenever she is going to the store, etc. to see if she would like to go or if she needs anything, keeping her off the bus until it cools off.
