Last night before going to bed Larry realized that the air conditioner wasn't cooling like it should. He went around the house and checked the vents, there did not seem to be much air coming from the vents and the air that was blowing through them was a few degrees warmer than it should be. This morning Larry found that Lockridge Priest was open on Saturdays, he called and the lady said they might make it today and if they didn't they would be here Monday. She asked him a few questions and told him that the air conditioner probably froze up and we should turn it off so it would thaw by the time the tech arrived. After getting off the phone he checked the air conditioner and found that it was indeed frozen up so he turned it off. The service person showed up around 3:00. Our A/C is a heat pump so the tech turned on the heaters to thaw it out. As it thawed out a lot of water came out, the tech used his shop vac and sucked it up. The unit had a leak and was low on freon, which caused it to freeze up. The repair man sealed the leak and filled it up with freon. Now the unit works great.
While we were hanging around the house we decided to smoke the pork roast we bought the other day. We hadn't smoked meat in a long time. We used our gas grill and kept the temperature around 225, it took less than 3 hours and it came out delicious.

Larry also worked on reviews for the Home Depot Seeds Program. He wrote reviews on a yellow safety vest, Shark Bite Couplers / Elbows and the StreamLabs Water Controller.

While the pork was smoking I checked out my flowers. A week or two ago I thought the flowers were finished for the season but they surprised me and a lot more flowers are blooming.

In the evening we watched a couple of dvds Larry had converted. Men in Black II and National Treasure. Afterwards I watched a few episodes of Murdock Mystery.
