It is a nice week in Las Vegas. Around 108 every day which isn't too bad for Vegas. When it gets over 110 it is hot.

My upstairs air conditioner went out on Sunday. First quote was $6200 to replace it but hopefully I can patch it back together for a couple hundred dollars. It is hard to sleep upstairs when it is 91 degrees when I go to bed.

70 in W MI, summer is here. On
days like this we would pack a
lunch in the late 50's and my
sister and I would find a creek
to play in and my parents
didn't know where we were
and cared even less. Nobody
kept track of their kids then.
Just be home for supper was
the rule.

Now that I've sold my camper, I wonder if my ac will die on me? It was my back up plan for if my ac dies, we could just turn the ac on in the camper until the house one is repaired or replaced. Now I suppose I will have to go find a motel, because I couldn't endure not having ac. Soon the temp is predicted to be in the teens.

Got my pool light fixed. Or I should say, my wife wanted it fixed, apparently pretty badly. I didn't know that the conduit for the light was already built in, so all the pool guys did is pull one out, and pull another one in.

Kids don't ride bicycles anymore, at least where I've been the last few decades?
We rode everywhere, unless we walked. My folks told us, be home for supper or you miss it. Only missed it once or twice, after that we knew when to be home.
i'm sure many things that were common are now considered child abuse.

I've read of children being taken away because a mom let her kids play in a back fenced yard without supervision.

My little known fact about AC (as I know very little about them in general) is a bigger AC than you need is not better. It turns on and off too much. Like goldilocks you need one just right.

Water, Food, Shelter, AC. Not necessarily in that order.

I'm sure Evenbob remembers living in the days before AC.

No seat belts, no car seats for
toddlers. You could leave your
kids in the car when it's 90 and
nobody cared. When I was 8
years old in 3rd grade, I had to
walk home 20 min before school
let out to watch my 2 year old
brother while my mom went to
work. I did that the whole school
year.

In 3rd grade I was in charge of the
home burn barrel, strike anywhere
kitchen matches, unsupervised.
Parents could beat their kids every
day, nobody cared. My mom made
us cut switches from the yard cherry
tree that would leave large welts on
our legs.

I often went to the local store for the
lady next door for cigarettes. 7 years
old, nobody at the store said a word.
Lots of new houses going up in the
50's, playing at the building sites
after they went home was a blast.
Nobody cared. There were no adults
with kids over 5 trick or treating, just
gangs of kids running door to door.
On Saturday my parents would drop
us kids off at the movies or the roller
rink and come back hours later for
us. They where both full of just kids,
no adults.

Try any of this now and they'll take
your kids away from you. How did we
ever survive.
