Death, Taxes and Irritability
Now that my taxes are all filed and I’ve given the government my pound of flesh (Hey! No fat jokes!), I’m back in the saddle (or basket, if you will – see my profile picture). And fair warning to the IRS – if you even think about auditing me, I’ll give a whole new meaning to the term “ankle biter”. I’ve got wicked kitty ninja skills.
First and foremost, I’d like to offer a moment of silence on behalf of “Meow”, my 39 pound brother in fur that passed away over the weekend at the young age of 2.
Obviously, Meow had some serious eating skills, which I’m sure contributed to his demise. As the only cat I ever saw that truly made me feel skinny, he will be missed (although at that size, not much could miss him).
Spring! With it comes glorious, sunshine soaked window sills. Just thinking about it makes my stress meter drop a few points. However, I?ve noticed that, while lying in the sun and soaking up the heat is a stress-reliever for me, the heat tends to make most of those around me irritable. Why? Who cares. But I digress.
Ironically, for those without a fur coat, heat tends to cause discomfort, which, in turn, causes irritability. For those who would like to stay comfortable (and less irritated), there?s air conditioning (I’m not a big fan – no pun intended). A properly sized and installed air conditioning system will remove that unwanted heat from your home or business and deposit it outside. Too bad air conditioners don’t work on in-laws.
Now, to the point (occasionally these things do have one). If you have air conditioning, now is a great time to have it tuned up in preparation for the season. If you don’t have it, it’s not too late. Depending on the configuration of your home or business and your existing heating system, there are a variety of options to choose from.
“Who can help me with service and installation?” you ask? I know just the people – Day Heating. You can find them the same way I do – follow the kitty treats. If that doesn’t work, try (503) 363-4822 in Salem or (541) 452-5111 in Corvallis and Albany. Now move along – you’re blocking my sunshine.
