Position To Be Filled: CABANA BOY!
"Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've
got 'til it's gone?" Yep, the "lads" are gone—guest appearances now
and then for "punch-list" items. Pretty tired…did someone say that
Christmas is less than three weeks away?
The "pod" still hasn't returned with our "stuff"—if it gets lost
on the way that's okay. Where would we put the "stuff" anyway, and why mess up
how beautifully it has been decorated? Winter sweaters APB—where are
they? In the pod, at my sister Maura's, or out at a friend Suzanne's, who
took boxes for me 8 months ago. Or were they thrown out??
Just like a new homeowner I have to buy the paper towels, sponges,
dust pan and brush, etc. Of course I am now scanning the Sunday
newspaper circulars for the best deal on the above. A little late to
try saving "cents." (Or should it be sense?)
Da da! The new washing machine is just amazing—almost up
to my shoulder in height. It has a flow mechanism
that shuts the
machine down automatically if it detects a leak—whew…3rd floor that
could be scary!!! What? It doesn't work? I actually read the manual! (Like that is going to make a difference for me.) Finally I climbed up
on the counter that Tom made in the laundry room, reached way
down (pass the Aleve!)…oh, I have to plug it in! Cabana Boys, where are you?
I couldn't twist one of the radiator valves—couldn't find a plier or a wrench—hence it is still off. Oh, Cabana Boys…
I had to call my friend Jerry Twomey who made the TV entertainment
for me: "How do I get the TV to work?" "Well, first you have
to open the cabinet and there is a little box…" I had been shooting the
remote at the screen…oh, Cabana Boys…
I told Tom that I thought that they should have put dimmers
kitchen lights. I was looking for the big old knobs to twist. With
he showed me that the dimmers were in place—small levers
that go up and down. Cabana Boys…Where are you??? Come back!!!
Hope this finds everyone well and rested…
