Wow. 92. I was in London one very hot summer for some classes, and I remember going into a shop and picking up a chocolate bar, and it was completely liquid. I had no idea England ever got so hot. We had no air conditioning in our classrooms or just about anywhere else. In America, I am cold inside most buildings because of the extreme air conditioning.
It was a very strange experience. We had a unisex group bathroom, which I had never heard of. I remember taking a shower that lasted about an hour because a group of guys speaking in a foreign language stood outside my shower stall talking throughout and my towel and clothes were on a peg outside the shower. I remember there was just a thin shower curtain between us. I suppose the fact that I couldn’t understand what they were talking about (and why they were there, of all places, in the first place) made me even more uncomfortable.
Having just eaten half a bag of potato chips . . . .
Great suggestion. The only other place near me (I walk everywhere) closed, but I notice a new place has opened about a half mile away. I’ll check with them.
That was my first and last contact with the BB squad. I was not impressed.
To me, wine tastes like turpentine. But I don’t think any other alcoholic beverage I have ever tasted was any better. Nothing beats an ice-cold diet Pepsi or a hot cup of tea or just plain water. Those three have the added benefit of never causing anyone to drive impaired. My brother was killed by a drinker. The guy pulled out of a bar parking lot in front of my brother, who swerved to avoid him and was killed. The drunk just kept going and certainly woke up the next morning with no memory of the boy he killed. He was never caught. Think about that next time you drink and you are going to be driving.
Drinkers can never be sure that they haven’t already killed someone.
The Supreme Cat is a female, although she never appears. Other than that, I think Caught Sleeping is correct.
I’m glad you got the car fixed and are safe.
My regular computer (I have a few) started crashing every 30 seconds to 10 minutes, so I took it into the “squad” of a store with the initials “BB” yesterday.
They said they would run diagnostics on my computer for $100 in advance.
Then they would call me, and I would have to cough up another $150 before they would actually attempt to fix anything, no matter what the repair. Huh?
I asked if, for the initial $100, would they would tell me what was wrong since I could probably fix anything other than a hardware issue, and they said no.
I took the computer home. I’ll try to re-install some drivers and maybe Windows; if that doesn’t work, it’s a paperweight. We normally have a recycle event twice a year in my neighborhood where things like this are collected, but it has been postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic.
Let’s hope things go well now with R. Glad the power is back.
People look better in black and white. Your imagination can fill in the details.
I am so glad for the good news about the DIL. I hope the power is back on soon.
