Or So it Seems … Up on the Rooftop

Once a year, in April, my house tries to kill me. That’s when I go to the rooftop to prance around, attempting to revive my aging swamp cooler. Sure, I’m up there in the fall, too. But it’s no problem to cork it up, and shut it down. Simple. But my spring rendezvous to reawaken [...]
