This was the first time my ancient university friend was going to see myself and others in our current city.
He plus I went back 25 years plus were maybe even better friends now than the two of us were back in the day.
That sometimes happens plus I’m real thankful that it happened for us. Still, the two of us don’t get to be in each other’s physical presence all that often. But that will change now that I moved north. I don’t like the HVAC heating bills plus am not a fan of the cold weather at all. So having my dear neighbor close enough where the two of us can visit each other every few weeks entirely helps soften the blow. I’m from the south where our Winter is tamed by the heat pump. He’s from the north where he’s quite accustomed to the gas gas furnace plus all that goes with heating a house. Now that I’m in the north due to a task transfer, his heating prowess entirely came in handy. The first night he spent in our house, he genuinely commented on the chill. I replied that’s what you get when you live up north right? Every one of us had a laugh plus I got him a overcoat. But the next day while the two of us were out plus about, the two of us stopped at a hardware store. My friend bought an instant study temperature gun there. I was sort of clueless until the two of us got home. Then the two of us made the choice to go out plus he started measuring the temperature all around the exterior of our house. What he found was a whole lot of venues where the HVAC treated heating was leaking out. Thanks to his Winter weather know-how, I’m now toasty hot in our lake house plus the HVAC heating bills are under control.
