As I write, a guy with a power saw is cutting a small rectangular panel from
the floor of my study behind me. Yes, folks, I am in Contractor Hell. Got
guys in to give us central air conditioning. This is our fall
budget-buster. (Last year’s was the waste system
.) I never realized there would be so much duct work involved. My basement
now looks like the set for those hunt-the-alien sequences in Alien
. Am I getting any work
done? Are you kidding?
