We’re back, She Who Must Be Obeyed and I, from our week of Restin’ in Destin.

But not quite.

When we arrived home this afternoon, it was immediately obvious that something was amiss. The temperature downstairs was 86°F - upstairs, it was a full-blown 92°. Clearly, something happened over the week we were away to Screw Up our Air Conditioning.


This being a holiday weekend, naturally, HVAC techs are thin on the ground. We will have to wait until sometime tomorrow for Blessed Relief...assuming the problem is one that can be repaired promptly and without a Major Infusion o’ Capital. In the meantime, we are cooling our heels (and the rest of us) at the home of our friends Laura Belle and Don.

Damn, but we are slaves to Modern Technology. I should feel shame, but I do not. At least at the beach, excessive heat and humidity is tempered by the presence of cooling waters.

But SWMBO and I have found the silver lining to this particular cloud. We may not be sleeping in our own beds tonight, but on the other hand, it’s One More Day of Vacation!
