Mist-er Man


Dick, mister

Maintenance Man has been doing just that recently.  The a/c units at church have been acting up.  I don’t know why, since they are only 20 years old!  Anyway, he would get one unit to behave, then he would get a call that something wasn’t right, and he would go back and tinker again.  He’s good at that.

So, he had to go to the big box store to purchase a few parts, and lo and behold one of those boxes contained something that didn’t go to church and will definitely score big hits with the grandkids:  it is a mister/light/radio player!  And it was majorly on mark down, since the summer is nearing the end, and MM couldn’t leave it sitting there at the box store.

It is all self-contained, but the mega battery needed charging (my job) while he got everything all put it together.

He was pleased as a kid at Christmas when he called me out to come see it with the light shining (not on in the photo), and music playing from his phone:



It works!  And is on rollers, so we can roll it over next door to the pavilion for a party for the big kids tomorrow.  Or put it on the golf cart.  Whatev…MM will get it moved where it needs to go.

Our big night out last night was seeing the Oak Ridge Boys perform at the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds.  The acoustics are good (and loud!), but the seats aren’t very comfy. Oh well… the group performed well in a two-hour, no intermission single show.  They announced that they will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame this fall.  This is a well-deserved honor.  Sing on, boys!

Oak Ridge Boys

So today, we get three chitlins after lunch, and MM and I are taking them to a church picnic later today.

Party animals be us, mountain style!

Who wants to join those chitlins and try out the new mister?

Yay Mister Man! I'm surprised the Oak Ridge Boys are just getting inducted. Geez, thought they were a long time ago!
Have fun!

MM is a treasure! And love me some Oaks! And since the motor to our A/C burned up yesterday and can't be gotten until Monday (it's under warranty) we could surely enjoy that mister. Luckily, we happen to have a room with A/c over at the Swamp so we can at least be able to sleep! Guess where we'll also be tonight? With leftover baked ziti for dinner? mmm hmmmm...

Al is worried about the furbabues being hot but they seem to be able to sleep under any and all conditions. ;)

Have a lovely day in the beautiful GA Alps! big hugs xoxo

That mister sounds like it will be a big hit! MM knows a bargain when he sees one. Glad you got to see the Oak Ridge Boys, it's always fun to see a live show.
