Bad Flame Sensor.


90 bucks.

Time spent waiting on repair guy?

2 hours.

Repair time?

15 minutes.


Oh, you betcha. After he took a look around and saw what was going on, the troubleshooting only took a minute or two, then the taking out and cleaning of the sensing bit only a few more minutes on top of that. The ol' rude Ruud is now kicking out its full complement of British Thermal Units, and life is once again on track here in Casa de Possum. And I don't have to worry about young lovebirds complaining about how cold it is.

Anyway, it's now 3:13, Judge Judy's on the toob, and there's not much use in going back to work because I'd just have to turn around and head right back home to pick up Rebecca from soccer practice, so I suppose this is it for the day.

Tune in tomorrow, and we'll do us some Thursday Threeing.

Since I'm a very bad man I give you this, The boring old broiler http://tinyurl.com/397f4a Might have been a good idea to look at the oven today too, yah think? Oh just to rub a lil more Cajun seasoning in, broiled flank steak & madera au jus w/roasted acorn squash lemon risotto.

The acorn squash will have to be dressed sweet and I don't like sweet food, Tony. That's for you.

A different question is why we spend hundreds of dollars keeping up animals that other people shoot for eating their crops.

Mmmmm. And not a word about filling up the house with smoke!
