I hear you Duse. It’s 8:30pm and a nice brisk 97 outside. I get home from work and the AC gets turned down from 77 to 76 , and down to 75 when I head to bed.

I’m in the sun, rain, cold, you name it. I work when most mail men don’t. Gotta get that gas delivered.
Hell yeah,,,About the same temps here,78 at 04;30 am 76 4:30 pm ,75 at 9;30 pm

I maintained a VERY heavy loss to my bank account today because my AC went out last week when I turned it on for the 1st time of the year. All good now with a brand sparkling new system - Trane / American Standard. I strongly believe in you get what you pay for - go big or go HOME!!!

OMG - My neighbor has a pretty big pine and when its windy you see huge plumes of yellow pollen coming off of it just like the video. That $hit gets all over everything.
Uhh…..I have 4 acres, 3 of them covered with 70-100’ pines….my windows stay closed and AC on with those bitches spraying pollen everywhere.

I'm a lil bitch to my electric bill and I refuse to turn on my AC until June. There has been warm days here and there but the last week and a half has been brutal and into the 90's. I put a mattress in my basement and have slept there the last couple of nights. My living room has been sitting at 89 degrees the last 2 days in the evening. I turned my AC on for the 1st time last Wednesday and it would barely cool anything down. It turns out that the bottom condenser coil ran right over top of a compressor line and have been slowly rubbing for 21 years. The aluminum coil line finally rubbed through and it was in an area that a guaranteed fix wasn't really possible. It was a Trane unit and has been outstanding for all this time until now. Trane & American Standard are literally the exact units built on the exact assy. line together. The difference is the final outside body color and badging at the end of the assy. line. Hopefully I'm good again for another couple of decades or more.
Are you married? I know what I wouldn't be getting (food of course), if the temp was over 72 in the house...Happy Wife Happy life.

Trane is awesome! I called around a lot and got it down to $6k. Quotes were starting over $9K in the beginning. I had no idea how much new AC was because I haven't needed to know for the past 21 years.

Not married but my fiancé / girlfriend (depends on the day!!) lives with me. She held up well over the hot days with no AC but I could tell she was not in her happy place!
Well, If during those days of being in the unhappy place, MrHappy made it into the happy place, you should definitely marry her. And that’s all I have to say about that.

I might take the plunge with her. She has a PERFECT Sweet Ass Saturday! No joke!! We met at a company I worked at a few years ago. She's my Pilipino Hottie (She's an American citizen - I didn't mail order a bride!!)

Sorry to suggest this, but you should have replaced the brake rotors and lubricated the slides.

You also should consider replacing the timing belt because of all the oil that is on it. I have seen belts break with catastrophic results. And if the water pump is driven by the timing belt, also replace it while you are there!

Had a 86 or 87 Prelude break a belt. Bent the valves..Had to remove the head and have it fixed..Was not easy, as this car had dual carbs and a spaghetti mess of vacuum lines!
