When we lived in Key West I bought my dream car, a 1955 Chevy for $50. The heater for the Chevy was under the passenger's seat. I had assumed I would find one there. I looked and no heater. Then I realized in 1955 the heater in a car was optional, since the car was bought in Key West the owner ordered it without a heater, he certainly didn't need it.
When we bought here in Deltona, the one thing I was proud of was, it had a new A/C unit. Once the power was on we learned the A/C did not work. Mr A/C man got it working in very little time for some $$.
WE had a cool snap, Jack and Mark arrived, switched on the heat, NO HEAT! I had ASSUMED that since the A/C was new it also included new heat strips. The statement came back to haunt me, "DO NOT ASSUME". This is Florida, but it does have cool snaps. I forgot that unlike further north, many folk here use space heaters on the few cold nights. This morning I pulled the covers of the unit and sure enough, NO HEAT STRIPS!
Mr. HEAT and A/C man arrived, and for $$ and an hour labor installed the heat strips. Yep, now we have heat. (Plus two space heaters we bought last night. LOL)
But life is good, it could have been lot's worse. The charge was about half of what Mr. Heat man had estimated. (Could that be done on purpose to make me smile!)
Sherry just got a call from Mark, he is coming up tonight and staying until aft Thanksgiving.
