April 28, 2009
The day we got the air conditioner installed was an environmental milestone. A couple of workmen came and punched a hole through the ‘feature wall’ which Dad had covered with wood panel designed wallpaper and installed what was to become the central focus in our house until we had a swimming pool installed a couple of years later. Suddenly the 40 degree plus summer heat could be tamed and we found ourselves all too often sitting indoors with the curtains drawn watching TV to keep cool while outside the suburbs baked, emerging at night to enjoy the cooler evening air.
