Forenoon watch, 1 bell (8:52 am)

Last night we had our friendly AC guy over (he takes good care of my in-laws) to get a quote on adding air conditioning to our house. We've been talking about it for over a year, and it's high time to get it done. Unfortunately, it's going to cost $2500, but I can look forward to cool summers forever more.
