I love this guy. The Father of Cool.
His name is Willis Haviland Carrier and he invented air conditioning.
I’m not going to share too much information here, but hot flashes are the scourge of womanhood.
I have been completely unmotivated to find my sewing room for the last two weeks, but I had a swap commitment to fulfill and it felt good to be back in the sewing groove. I’m looking forward to working on something else today. Thanks for the kick in the pants, Terri!
Thanks to everyone who commented about Chuck in the previous post. He’s been back to the vet twice and we’ve had to adjust the insulin amount both times. First it was too much, then not enough, but I hope the third time’s a charm and we have it just right. It’s so hard when they can’t tell you how they feel!
My project for this morning is to paint speaker boxes. When he’s not playing the part of software engineer, Mr. Dotty builds stuff like the speaker and monitor cabinets below. He’s building two cabinets for a local band, so I’ll paint and he’ll put the speakers in tonight.
Here he is playing with Amber and a couple of other guys last summer.
He also builds guitar amps. The natural wood with the black grill cloth is very cool, I think.
This is his favorite thing to do, though.
He’s been at it for 40 years! Here’s one of his bands from the early ‘80s:) He’s on the right with the flying Vee. I think this was his favorite out of the many bands he’s been in. They were good but this picture cracks me up!
I’m not sure how I got from air conditioning to rock bands, but there you have it. Time to paint and then to the sewing room! Wishing you a creative day:)
