A notebook on the floor is worth two in the knapsack (or something like that)

Helloooo, Our Shiputzim readers!

Those of you who were concerned (and we do thank you for your empathy) about our A/C-less state will be relieved to learn that the repairman returned today and replaced the controller board. It even came with a new remote.

So, the fans are now on their way back up to the attic.

But today’s big news was that we had two longish blackouts – one in the late afternoon and one in the evening. Apparently, the electricity was out in the entire area and not just here in our neighborhood.

Yes, this did mean that the A/C was once again out of commission… but this time, the fans were of no help, either.sun

Since blackouts aren’t all that photogenic, let’s see if we can’t find something else for your viewing enjoyment.

Ah! Here’s something:


As you may have guessed, this is the haul from this summer’s school supplies shopping spree. (Try saying that 5 times fast!)

That’s about all for now.

See you next time on another exciting episode of…. Our Shiputzim!


  1. but this time, the fans were of no help, either.

    of course you now had a full insulated roof over the attic and not the flat roof. This for sure kept the house cooler

  2. This for sure kept the house cooler
    Yes, it definitely did BA"H.
