      Labor Day, End of Summer Sales, Here comes Autumn?

      I guess I missed most of summer, or was lucky enough not to be in many hot zones this year. First time I pulled out my generator was last week, only to find my A/C was not working. Lack of use? :rolleyes:

      The older I get, the more I hate the heat. Bring on the cold (plus I have an Espar)

      Well some good news on the A/C unit. Found a replacement unit at Target, should be a easy take out/put in being the same unit... If I installed it how I remember :rolleyes:

      Was rather surprised it was $60 cheaper at Target then at Walmart :eek:

      Guess it pays to shop around online ;)

      It was probably just a fuse.

      Yeah, could be something simple or not. But what ever the problem is, it's a fine line for repair vs. replace on a $100 unit. I'd say I got my moneys worth out of it already ;)

      I think it was a 50 cent fuse. I'm going with that. :D

      Famous last words lol.

      Apparently, I did forgot how I installed it. As I normally do with a project, I go a wee bit over board making sure something is secure. Boy, did I have a secure A/C unit :JC-hysterical:

      Was a pain in the butt, but it's done ;)

      I did that last year. Was up there getting the Espar worked on for a couple of days and had to wait a few days for a part to come in down at Wayne's World. So I hung out at the yard all week, and it was a blast. Got a flu shot on my birthday. Don't know if that's happening again, but I appreciated it.

      The breakfast buffet is killer, and the box lunches aren't your run-o'-the-mill box lunches, either. John is a jack of all trades and a master on the grill. If you don't get enough to eat while you're there, you aren't paying attention. Go for the food, stay for the fun.

      One of the things I liked best was getting to meet some of the sales people.

      Unfortunately we were unable to get a provider for the health fair and flu shots for this week. We are going to try and offer it up in a few weeks. Most didn't have the vaccine yet for some reason.

      This is my hat. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

      I think it's time to finally retire the original hat. Replace it with one of my backups.
