FT is on the road again, on a trek to Saskatchewan with TF. So I’m on my own now for two weeks. Nothing wrong with two old guys rattling across the prairies in a Pontiac. They went last year, making this a now annual event.
This leads me to my next topic – travel. I haven’t gone anywhere this year. I’ve been working on the rental properties and the teardrop trailer, working only half days the past few weeks because of the heat. Since Floyd’s leg started acting up, I’ve decided to take it easi(er).
The plumbing for the rear suite (formally called the garage) at house #2 is now complete. It passed inspection just yesterday. It is still a garage for now as there is still a bay door in it. But that will soon disappear. Next task: framing interior walls.
On my way back from trying to pay the Gutter Shop for work to be done at house #2 (turns out they closed down their storefronts, and Google hasn’t caught up to it), I stopped at Starbucks for a cup. Nice day for a coffee in a shady outdoor area.
I bought a new fridge a week ago, and it finally arrived yesterday. It’s a Whirlpool 18 cu. ft. freezerless fridge. The problem is, it has to go back. The fridge door is not reversible! I haven’t seen a fridge with no reversible door for ages. So I called, and they’re sending someone in the next few days to bring it back. So I ask you, why would they make a fridge that 50% of the population cannot use?
Their explanation is that it is stainless steel. … What? What the heck does that have to do with it? I thought and have come to the assumption that people who want stainless steel fronts do not want extra holes with plugs in them. There aren’t many fridges out there without freezers, so pickings are slim. In the mean time, FT has opted for a normal fridge with freezer at the bottom.
