That Was The Week That Was

When last we met I was waiting for weird weather: tornadoes in the afternoon followed by a freeze that night.  Well we had rain, but no lightning and no tornadoes, followed by a pretty hard freeze, it went down to 26º here which will frost you right and proper.
Then it was thaw out and go grocery shopping one of my least favorite things in the world to do.  I need drone delivery.
Then we discovered our heater wasn't working properly and we called our Redneck maintenance man who said to turn it off and he'd be there in the morning.  Thank goodness for our gas fireplaces.
He was here bright and early, way too early and went to work.  He found one problem, got a new part and it still wouldn't work.  Turned out the darn thing was running on emergency heat, which will burn your dollars like kindling, and the thermostat had to be reset.
Last night we went out dancing for the first time in so long I forgot how to get my dancing boots on.  Being on the lookout for Swamp Heifers ( go read Pearl, Why You Little ... for an explantation of this name) we headed out to a local restaurant/bar/dance hall and had a great night dancing to the music of some old friends.  We did see one Swamp Heifer who managed to fall on the floor while dancing, but we were able to avoid her.  Would have been nice if her partner had helped her up.
Fast week, now I need to get ready for Thanksgiving.
