So today I borrowed a ladder from our neighbored and set to work replacing the pads on our evaporative cooler. It seemed that the pads were several years old, the base of the cooler had a lot of filth in it. I really don’t know how to get rid of it besides scraping it out by hand; which I got a lot out, but there is a lot more work to do in cleaning it completely up. If anyone has a good way of cleaning it out, let me know! The view was nice, and I had a lot of fun just looking around. I think I just remember that I left my flashlight up on top of the cooler. I will have to borrow that ladder again…. sooner then I’d like. Oh well. Just before I got up on the roof, I took Lizzy around the block in the gorilla cart again. She really enjoyed that. I hope to take her on a few more trips, maybe even to the park, before I have to give it back to my parents.
