Furnace Failure

All electrical appliances seem to fail at the exact most inconvenient time, don’t they?

Yesterday our main furnace failed as the wires on its heat-exchanger melted and burned and filled the house with its acrid odor.

So the furnace repairman came —– We are so grateful he was willing to come out on a Sunday —– and tomorrow morning, bright and early, we are getting a brand new, ultra-modern, high-efficiency furnace with a new, updated thermostat on the wall.

Between last night and this morning, we used a space-heating unit borrowed from the furnace repairman. It is one of those silently-running infra-red, quartz reflective things like the ones that were invented by the Amish People a few years ago —– a lot of safety devices —- never gets hot to the touch —- heats a 1,000-square-foot area —– low on energy consumption —– It must be safe enough because I did wake up breathing this morning ….. LOL.

Still have remnants of the gout in my left foot but it is resolving itself slowly. I could have gotten a prescription of a drug called “Gabapentin” for it but after I read the “Patient Information Sheet” I became frightened of the drug —– and so I guess I will suffer it out without the aid and assistance of anything else but a few glasses of tart cherry juice and some lemonade —- and lots of bed rest —- and lots of liquid —- and lots of profanity!
