The heat vent wars are on again
It's an old rug brick, Toronto semi-detached
house, and yes it could use some insulation, and
maybe a revised heating system. I don't have much
time to talk to you tonight. I'm still marking, preparing
for a long day tomorrow, and trying to finish my
big painting. Still I thought you'd enjoy this little
picture of Fiona fighting over the heat vent with
Zoey. Fiona is the alpha dog in our house, and she's
a 5 1/2 pound Siamese cat. This photo shows how
she wins over the vent, from Zoey, who is 10 times
her weight. She simply taps Zoey on the posterior,
until she drives the dog nuts, and presto -- she gets
the heat vent. The warmest one in the house (we have
forced air) is under this kitchen cabinet, and all three
animals fight to lie there.
Brrrr. It's cold outside.
Have a cuddling-up-to-keep-warm day.
