Comments, Bugs, Heat

I know, comments are hosed again. Yes, I'm going to fix it permanently. Look for a permanent fix on my 5 year blogiversary... coming in June.

Meanwhile, to Peggy... I love John the Penguin and saw him speak in person. He is fabulous!!! Even my kids and husband thought he was great and they're not runners... or whatever I am.

To Mike... snow caps are a candy you get in movie theaters. They're little pieces of dark chocolate with white sprinkles. My fave. A little something stupid my readers didn't know.

Who in the hell goes camping, in MAY, in Miami? Who? Could you get any closer to the equator on the continental United States? NO.

Frickin' us. With the Boy Scouts. I'm off in 30. Pray for a cold front...

Onto darker tones... found out today my house has subterranean termites. Evidently that's where my tax refund is going...

Oh wait. I spent that already mentally... on my Master Bath, that we just cleared out of mold... the shower is rotting out. Love that. I was cleaning the tub when I noticed the adjacent wall felt... funky. I left a message on my husband's voice mail (How in the hell did married couples communicate before cell phones and voice mail?) saying, "Uhhh... we have a problem Houston."

He came home, I was still out, and accidentally poked his thumb through the drywall.

Any good feelings about that bathroom were gone.

So we're off to vacation for the weekend with the Boy Scouts. In Miami. In May.

Bonus for us, we're divided into patrols with all the adults together in the Over the Hill Gang. The parent who stepped up and insisted in cooking happens to be a professional chef.

Eating will be good... even if it's stinkin' hotter than three hells.

Always looking for a positive.

If you can think of a positive on the termite situation, feel free to share, if comments will allow, as I have yet to find one on that gig.

Ciao.

I hope your trip goes well - I don't know HOW you camp in Florida. I couldn't do it...

And I don't know how my hubby and I ever communicated without text messaging. Yeesh...

My husband does not use text messaging, but at least now he will leave his cell phone on - that took a while. Now I have a shot at getting hold of him - although I seldom need to do that - which is a good thing.

I'm with Rich - I hate camping, but even more I'd never be able to camp in Florida... oh forget it - I hate camping anywhere. ROFLMAO.

Bou,

I live in the South, too...hot, humid weather makes for fertile breeding grounds of all types of vermin, including termites.

Bite the bullet and pay for repairs, treatment and a service contract, but stay away from that company with a name that sounds like germinecks...they've been the defendants in many a law suit for failing to stand by their warranties.

Ask friends, neighbors and co-workers for references and double-check everything with your local Better Business Bureau, Secretary of State and Attorney General's offices.

Look for a company who will offer a treatment guaranteed to last 10 years that provides for annual inspections at a minimal annual fee. For example: treatment after repairs made by licensed contractor costs $1000.00; treatment is warrantied for 10 years; annual inspections are offered to notify homeowners of problems which would could cause termites not covered by the warranty (i.e. leaking water line) for $100 a year.

Cheap insurance, this I know.

Good Luck!
