Well, I had a general handy man over. I rented a husband in a way. He pulled the dryer out from the wall (there is no other placement in the house for this dryer) and lined it up properly with the venting hole in the wall. It needed tweaking which the installer didn't do. Sigh. So now everything fits; and he plugged up a hole where the dryer plugged into the outlet and that itself may be where the mice were coming in last fall and winter and also where that cold breeze was coming from that I could feel on my feet when it was winter time. I hope to goodness this will stop the mice and Katie capturing them and bringing them to the bed! That's a jolt, trust me.
Now I have discovered it's damp under the house...sigh...and I contacted someone to come and see about a moisture barrier and to see what to do with the vents if that is needed. $$$. Glad I closed an account at the credit union a few weeks ago. It may help cover these unexpected expenses.
Meanwhile still hot..still humid but then, this is still August.
I found a place that can sell me the out of print book I want and there is a sequel to it. I will buy that too. There was a movie made from that book as well and that was 1924. If anyone else wants to look one up, I used Bookfinder.com
I have just finished my lunch (and logged it) of a sandwich of tuna salad with TWO stalks of celery in it because I love celery so much. I measured the lite mayo for the first time ever. I put pickle relish in mine. Nummy.
Off to read the paper. With the handy man here and then going to the grocery store I haven't looked at the papers yet and I know someone small will want to be on my lap for snuggle time. She was mashed up into my back and later my tummy last night. Keeps you on the edge of the mattress but oh well. Here she is, all flattened out and her eyes almost closed.
PS I think I may have to delete this account. A porn site has been here.
