This past weekend consisted of an event of epic proportions. I don’t even know where to begin with describing it. My Dad had scheduled a big house party for the end of summer celebration we always had as a family. We were going to have a big barbecue outside, and just have a grand old time. Unfortunately, we also had some HVAC system repairs scheduled for the same day. My cousin Larry is extremely handy with tools. Him and his best friend Donald agreed to tackle our heating and cooling system repairs for a “reduced price.” My Dad is very tight with his money, so he quickly agreed. The fun began when Donald found some “disturbances” is the ductwork. He was looking for cracks and leaks, but he found “proof of life.” Some type of animal had been nesting in the ductwork. It didn’t take long for Donald to run down the attic stairs screaming, with a small rat chasing him. I never laughed so hard. Meanwhile, my cousin Larry was trying to fix the outdoor portion of the HVAC system. He was tinkering around with his tools, when all of a sudden a giant goose snuck up behind him and honked right in his ear! He threw down his HVAC system manual and ran like a marathon athlete! After all the animal induced humor, my cousin got back to fixing the HVAC system. It took them a couple of hours to get the whole cooling system back in running order, but it sure gave us some great comedy relief.
