ollie....."It's been a rough weekend. It rained a lot, it got cold. We got cold, we asked the biped to turn on the big heater, that meant she had to bang and clang and clean filters that were embarrassingly full of dog hair."
dumb & dumber...."Ahem, that would be cat hair."
ollie....."Dog ha.... and it got really quiet cuz the biped was saying those unprintable four letter words in rapid sucession."
D&D...."It appears that the cat hair has plugged up some drain part on the heater/air conditioner and water has collected and made a huge puddle and to make bad things worse...."
ollie....."the biped switched the air conditioner to heater, and after the normal smell of burning dog hair faded nothing happened."
D&D...."absolutely nothing. No warm air flowing thru the house, just a sickning buzzing sound followed by silence."
ollie...."then when things couldn't get any worse...."
ollie....."The red headed stepcat got out started stalking us."
biped..."The red headed step cat was actually very nice and gave Heesh a kiss before eating all his kibble and retiring to her room."
Ollie....."Thank goodness for all those blankies that we got from Peggy's Place. Between them and global warming we should be nice and cozy till God gets around to healing our heater. I'm sure that the biped was only joking when she said that it would take a month of Sunday's before she could afford a bag of Temptations again."
