Happy Father's Day to all the J-Land Dads!
The best gift a father can give his child is to love and respect their mother and, of course, unconditional love for the child. I was extremely fortunate to have a father that did both. I was my dad's princess and could do no wrong in his eyes. He spoiled me but looking back, did he really? No. Just showered me with love and praise every day of his life. He continued to do so with my children, his grandchildren, also. I still miss my dad even though he died 12 years ago.
Unfortunately, I married someone the exact opposite of my dad so my children were robbed of that experience. Their father has robbed himself of the experience of appreciating the beauty and talents of the three wonderful children he created. His loss, for sure.
Of course, a little rant for today. My AC went kaput totally yesterday in the heat of the afternoon. The 90's have reached western Pa. Sears called me Tues and told me they had to search venders for a compressor for my unit. It would be July 14th before they found one. This didn't really bother me a whole lot because the air conditioner was still plugging away and the weather wasn't hot yet. Now, I'm cranky to put it mildly. I can't tolerate heat without AC. My BF is calling tomorrow to speak with a supervisor. This air conditioner is only three years old. It's been out of order more than it's worked. I'm wondering how they come up with the exact date of a month from when they called. The unit is a Kenmore, for goodness sake. That's their own brand and they can't find a compressor nationwide to install?
Sorry guys for my venting but sheesh...my car isn't going to be fixed until Tues. No problem because I was considering renting a car anyway. It's 86 already this morning and my AC sounds like it's going to fall out of the wall. I'm so tempted to just bash it...lol. Actually I'm tempted to go shopping and buy a new one but these things cost about $600 plus I need a carpenter to install it. Besides that, with my luck with motor driven "anythings", I'd probably be buying another lemon. Anyway, it's the principle of the whole thing. Sears has a big statement in my warranty that satisfaction is totally guaranteed or my money will be cheerfully refunded.
Well, at least the pool is holding its own, so far. The water still looks like yuck but I'm going for a dip this afternoon anyway.
I really wish all the dads a great day today and everyday. J-Land is filled with some very great guys.....
