Good time for a bad day.

Friday, I left work early to finish installing the central air conditioning, and move my computer to the new house. I had been gone less than an hour when my boss calls to tell me that the air conditioner has failed at our business. Two hours of sweaty work later, we decide to give the 30 year old condenser a decent burial and get a new one. No place in town has one, so with relief, I head home. I get home and just get my tools out of the truck and the @#$$%@ cell phone goes off again. A new home I had wired was tripping a circuit breaker. Found problem. Fixed problem. No big deal, just damned annoying. The day is shot, I'm hot, sweaty, dirty, and smell like a yak. Saturday dawns cool and I start fresh. Working smoothly until my torch runs out of oxygen. Said a bad word. OK, lots of them. Finally manage to borrow a torch, then I find out my Freon lines are a few inches too short. Then my vacuum pump quits. Then I ran out of Freon. Then I said more bad words. Then dad calls. My grandmothers air conditioner has quit.
But, I had a great weekend.
I got to talk to my friend, MO on the phone.
I spent some time with my dad and grandmother.
Kitty helped me by dispensing tools and kind words and ignoring my stink.
I helped some kids put on an Easter special at church.
I got to play my stratocaster at church.
And at 9 : 30 sunday night, held together with duct tape and prayer, my air conditioner began spewing beautiful cold air.
Yea, a very good weekend.

Thanks, babe. Is he going to be in town, or am I having a blond moment and not understanding? I'll shoot Kat an e-mail. Kitty was actually out raking leaves when I got home. Filled about four bags. You should have seen her in her little pink cap, all red faced and sweaty, with a great big "look what I did" grin. I have never seen her do yard work before.
