Is it HOT enough for you?

Man, oh man. It is HOT!!!!! Been close to 100* for several days. One more day, then it's supposed to be a little cooler. Everybody in the campground is staying inside. We're living like hermits. We usually try to get out in the evening and walk a bit, but that is about it.

We have been working at getting our apartment rented. I am amazed at the number of people who don't pay their bills. They want to rent, but don't think the bankruptcy last October should hurt their credit score. . . say WHAT?????? Actually it was probably the first one eight years ago coupled with the new one that is the problem. . . And then there is the applicant who has numerous open collections just placed there this summer. Do they think someone trusting them with a HOUSE wouldn't be scared off by these things? One said. . . "Well, I ALWAYS pay my rent and car payment." I'm supposed to be okay with that? Yeah, well just wait till your wages are garnisheed for those collections and then we will worry about the rent. No thanks. It will sit empty before it's rented to some unqualified applicant. Cheaper in the long run.

Okay, enough of that. Terry went to the oral surgeon yesterday and had two molars pulled. Yep, got those sore teeth pulled. Both had crowns and broke off at/below the gum line and the one had started causing him some pain, so it was time to get rid of it. Fortunately they were able to move him up in the line when it started throbbing. They put him on antibiotic for a few days before the surgery. Yesterday he slept a lot and it did bother him once the numbness wore off, but today you wouldn't know he had anything done. He is up and moving around. He worked on credit reports and printed out some letters for the apartments.

I had a list of stuff to do yesterday while he was sleeping and I got most of it done. I finished up my list earlier this evening, so I feel pretty good about that. I bought airline tickets for the second week in September. We are flying down to Florida because there is a bridal shower for Megan and I wanted to be there. It's a long way to go, but I wouldn't miss it. We are flying down on a Tuesday, shower is on Wednesday, then we are flying back on Thursday. Then the next week we have doctor appointments in central Indiana. The following Sunday we fly to Houston for Terry's cancer checkup on Monday, then fly back on Tuesday. We are really racking up those frequent flyer miles. Then we will make a quick trip north to check on the properties, then we are heading out for the winter. We will visit Charlottesville, Virginia, first, then head for Florida.

While in Florida, we are going to make a detour to Ormond Beach and have a real expert fix our Datastorm. We have unhappy it has been out of commission for so long. We are going to suspend the service for now, then reactivate when we get it fixed. Looking forward to doing business with DataStorm of Florida. I've heard nothing but good reports on them.

Last week the Airstreams were in here for a rally and this week the Avions are in here. When we get out to walk again, I will take a picture of them.

Till next time. . .
