The weather forecast says we'll make it to 100° today. That's just part of living in Missouri, so we take the bad with the good. Cliff and I may be a bit more uncomfortable than most of our neighbors, since our air conditioner decided to stop working yesterday. I called the folks who installed our furnace five or six years ago... they did something with our A/C at the time, something involving a coil; the lady said it would be ten days before they could even come out! I decided to go very local, so I called a guy who used to come and put freon in our A/C every summer, although I thought he had retired. I'm pretty sure he did, but he said he'd be out this morning, so perhaps he will save the day. I really think we should invest in a new air conditioner before next year, but there are so many shortages of things like that everywhere, I wonder if it would even be possible to get one.
Did I mention the A/C decided to quit on Cliff's birthday? Happy birthday to Cliff! We have now entered the period of a few days when my husband and I are the same age; that lasts until my birthday on July 7, and then I'm older again. We celebrated fifty-five years of marital bliss on Monday by going to PT's in Oak Grove and splitting a tenderloin sandwich and a half-order of onion rings. I was afraid I'd be sorry later, since it doesn't take much to upset my stomach, but I got away with that delightful meal; you won't find a better tenderloin sandwich anywhere.
If your interested, there is a reason why our wedding preceded Cliff's birthday by two days. You'll find that story in THIS ENTRY from 2007.
I mentioned to Cliff that I would really like to attend "Not Long Ago, Not Far Away" at Kansas City's Union Station. I was surprised when he willingly agreed. He doesn't like going to Kansas City for anything; he just knows we'll both end up dying there, killed in a drive-by shooting. But he's been to the Union Station a few times and considers it a safe destination, and even sounded somewhat interested in the event. It's sold out for weeks, but since it will be there until the end of the year, I'm sure we'll be able to find a time that will suit us. I'm not going to book it so far ahead, though; at our ages, who knows what will happen to us in three months? Ha!
