Today's recap

Furnace broken. House temp: 48 degrees.

Furnace man came. Opened furnace door. Big dead bird.

I almost passed out.

Then behind bird, dried up gigantic wolf spider. I screamed. Furnace man screamed. Chumley ran down and slapped furnace man's leg 10+ times. Furnace man screamed again.

It was sheer madness.

But furnace is now fixed.

Just another day.

I still can't wipe the grin off my face reading this goofy story. I can just picture it! You have a "day in the life" Reader's Digest submission here.

I was a little bit worried about your house temp in this cold snap. SO glad that you had a repair man over, and that he was able to FIX IT! Maybe you can take your hat off indoors now -- even though it's so cute.
Hope Tom is feeling better. Hugs to everyone from me!

Holy crap, that had me cracking up and gagging simultaneously!! Maybe now you'll actually have some freakin' heat in your house!!!

Our house is always 10 degrees colder than outside or 10 degrees hotter because we have to leave our door open for the doggies all day long :( I feel your pain!

Funny Story though!

'furnace man screamed again' LOL
what kinda girly man is that furnace man?
shouldn't he be used to seeing dead birds in there, occupational hazard and all that?

I laughed so hard at this one. You should have a show in TV. You know, like the "Ellen Show".
