People tend to develop quirks as they get older. They get set into a particular habit of doing things, plus it takes an act of God to dissuade them from it. I guess when you’ve lived long enough, you’re justified in having things your way for the remainder of your life. You’ve put up with all the crap that life has thrown at you plus now it’s time to relax plus care about yourself, I get it. However, whenever I visited our Grandparents lake home lately, I found that they set an unbearably low temperature on the temperature control. I do not remember them preferring it ice freezing in our younger years, but now they insist on it. I try to avoid fights over the temperature control with them whenever I visit. It is their lake home after all. However, when it’s just as freezing in the winter, that is where I draw the line. Our winters are not necessarily mild around here, so I downright fear for their safety whenever they insist on setting such low rapidly decreasing temperatures when it’s already below freezing outside. What are they thinking? Their oil furnace is admittedly pretty outdated plus has seen better days, so I decided to do something for them. I obtained some portable area gas gas furnaces for them to set up in their several rooms. This way they could at least have some effective source of heat during the worst of the winter. The last time I visited their home, area gas gas furnaces were still set up everywhere, so I guess they are using them. I hope they’re not just taking them out for our benefit before I arrive!
