cold

....coldcoldcoldcoldcold...Came in this morning and found furnaces "down" -- it was 55 F in the church and 45 F in the Rambler's Office. I need me some of those Bob Cratchit gloves, at this rate.
And where is the Beloved Old Guy who understands the Furnace Mysteries? Oh he's in Mexico, you say? Well a big cheer for him.
We'll call his son...his son is in Toronto...but his son puts me thro' all that an amateur can do to revamp the system, to no avail...
So a service man from the firm was despatched, and we now "gat heat," like King David...and the service man also showed me another mysterious magical switch which I can "try" if this should happen again.
St. Nicholas is coming tomorrow at the end of the service: I have chocolate money and chocolate "lumps of coal" and so forth for him to distribute amongst the young and not-so. Now to store them in a mouse-proof place...

And I've written a very, very simple sermon on making a highway for God = repentance.

I can not imagine what it was like to have your office at 45 ... but our house didn't get higher than 58 today! Usually we have it at 60 but since it was colder today and not such a wet cold, I didn't even notice that the furnace stayed at its nighttime temp. This will change in a month or so!

Brrr! It's snowing here on the coast of Maine. I am grateful for the drop in oil prices and for my down comforter at night!
