Hah! proper pitch, sitting in the window, wedged in with boards to fill the window space above. Duct tape over all the seams between window, boards and machine. Plug it in. It's just a small window unit, not a permanent placement.

Maybe the extra was the time taken for swearing at and cursing the A/C, screwdriver, rubber mallet, window, boards, tape, me...

Aaaarrg! I think I'm getting poison ivy on my eyelids, ears, mouth & jaw. They itch like crazy. My eyelid is a little red & puffy. My brother cleared some brush with the lawn mower Saturday while I was outside. I know there was poison ivy in it. Hopefully I'm imagining things.

Bravo, PF!!!

That is THE most important part!

I find I never quite have the swearing part down right....Sometimes it takes a woman to do a "man's" job. I do all the tech, electrical, 'puter stuff around here. My patience limit is apparently a lot longer, and I don't bash the crap out of whatever it is with a hammer, saw it off, or light it on fire.

I am fixer of eye glasses, unclogger of disposals, tweaker of toilets, decrudder of showers and drains....

Yikes! Hope not, CC!

Benadryl spray might help.

You reminded me of something. For a few months in the 1980's I and my ex were janitors in an apartment building. The owner said that the previous janitor had two tools - a screw driver and a hammer and he preferred the hammer.

Shrek has no patience, at all...I hate it when he tries to fix something, it means I have to listen to him, then he really gets mad and has to go buy more stuff that doesn't work right. I'm the fixit person, faster, quieter and cheaper...

A riding vacuum would be awesome. Seems like I have acres of carpet! As soon as this carpet wears out, the main level will be wood or wood-look laminate!

Oh yeah! I would rather run a wide dust mop than a vacuum.

You mean I'm not the only person who owns such a thing?
