So yesterday I wanted to walk and it was already over 80 degrees by 8am. So I ended up going to the gym around 10am. Stupid gym (Planet Fitness), they had one of the front doors open (they have large double glass doors) when I left I asked why the door was open when it was 94 degrees outside. The gym guy said and I quote "But there is a nice breeze". Really, we are having Santa Ana winds again and it is a strong wind not a breeze. What a waste of energy for all that AC going out the door.
So I go again today but a bit later, in fact after 2pm, it is close to 100 degrees, get there and both doors are wide open. I am thinking the owners of this place must have money to throw out the window (in this case doors) and they remained open the whole time I was there. So the inside is pretty cold, the ceiling fans are blowing full blast and I never hear the compressor from the AC go off. I have AC in my home and I know they are suppose to cycle, even with your fresh intake fans are turned off. They will cycle on and off. Businesses can be reported here for wasting energy, but do I really want to do that. I go to the gym when the weather is like this because of allergies and asthma and with those doors open, I might as well be out on the sidewalk
Also the killer is my AC in my car is still not working. Ouch, so when I come out of the gym I must put my towel on the sit so I don't burn my rear end.
Oh well. Frank got a temp job for a couple of weeks at REI (a sporting goods store chain here in CA). This will help him pay for some cavities he thinks he may have. He gets his teeth cleaned tomorrow and they will do x-rays at that time. We paid for the cleaning because the dentist gave us a deal @ $150 cash price w/x-rays included. He will have to see how it goes.
It's 4:30pm & close to 100 degrees. I have to take Phred out late, after 7pm, so the sidewalk & street won't burn his paws.
