We’re getting to be good friends, by now, with all of the various employees of our chosen HVAC company. The few kinks that are still left in our brand-new boiler are simply symptoms of its being a brand-new boiler: the brand-new parts still have oil left on them from the factory, and it’s this oil clogging things up for a while. One of our new HVAC friends is on his way over here now to bleed (or whatever the proper verb is) our new furnace again.
As I wait, I am wrapped up in my shawl, pondering my new Galapagos wildlife book. We head there at the end of January, and I want to be prepared for what I’ll see. Glancing at a few pages on the ship over won’t be enough… too much to see.
