My neighbor Ann was there. She was bored before but I think since her husband died, she's kicked it up to a new level. I'm sorry for her and hope she finds her way sooner than later. She no longer drops in here whenever she wants - or even at all. She can't go two sentences without smearing populations - people for whom English is not their first language, people with accents, people who are of a different color or race or who practice non-protestant Christian religion. My pointing out how offensive this is to hear did nothing to curtail it. So I curtailed the visiting. We got in a small chat last night. Fortunately, the meeting started before I had to hear her latest slur.
The new building manager does not seem to be getting any less annoying. Seems like there should be a statute of limitations on how long he can blame his own short commings on the former manager. Also, he seems to have ear/mouth issues. He has to answer before the end of the question and can't seem to listen to anyone ... because he has to talk. I give him a year or less before he is gone.
The majority of board members, on the other hand, seem to be way sharper than usual. There's one that's a little loose in the screws department but we are extremely lucky to have the rest of them in leadership positions.
The air conditioner that I bought last Spring bragged about being energy efficient on the outside of the box. I did not believe it. But I was wrong. My electric bills - compared to last Summer - are way lower. Like 30% and the rates per are higher. Wow. Impressive. And, I have to say that the house is more consistently cooler and a lot quieter. Soooo glad I pulled that trigger. The 10 day forecast shows 0 relief from hot sun with no clouds. If you need me, I'll be in my cool house or in the pool!
Today is swim at 11. And baseball at 4.
