Where's Gary?

OK, I'm sure no one has really been asking that question but I have been posting fairly light lately. I've got relatives visiting from out of state for a bit (and no, they're not staying with me) and it's become necessary to cash in on some of that vacation time I've been holding back. I plan on simultaneously spending some quality time with them and tiddying up at Casa De La Ex-Donk for when they're scheduled to pop in for the obligatory visit later this week.

To add insult to injury, my fridge is on the outs. The freezer works just fine but the fan for the other part is kerflooey and now I have to spend time figuring out if I should fix it or trash it. Had it been the freezer that had gone kerflooey I could have made do with the big stand-up freezer in my basement. But, noooooo. Now I'll have to squeeze all my dairy products into one of those little brown beer fridges you have when you're in college for the time being.

And the kids are no longer doing camps and summer activities. It's them dog-days of summer in spades.

So needless to say my free time for posting will be pretty tight over the next week or so. I'll try to check in now and again.

How old's the fridge? If you can really get good energy savings with a new one, donate the old one (with a fixed fan).

Err... drill a couple of 2" holes between working freezer side and non working fridge, problem fixed. Suggest you do the holes in diametrically opposed corners so you get some circulation going.
Just a thought......

I was wondering about Buck, Ardala, and Twiki recently, so yes, we do miss you, Gary.
