While we’re still dealing with things like this –

Fam room wall 

— we have this loud machine, running 24 x 7, to purify and “desmokify” (isn’t that a word?) the air.

The Boss XL3 
It’s loud, but it works. The air doesn’t smell smoky anymore – at least not upstairs. You pretty much have to trust something called The Boss XL3.

Meanwhile, I guess Mother Nature was tired of black (and isn’t that just her way, that fickle thing), so she decided to change her clothing:

Fresh coat 1 
A nice, fresh coat of white to camouflage the charred remains of my yard.

Yesterday, a cleaning crew wiped down our walls and ceilings and all of our stuff to remove the sooty deposits. We couldn’t see much, but it doesn’t take a lot to make the house smell smoky. It was strange having them all here, so we left… we had a nice lunch out, then we went bowling. Because when the going gets tough… the tough, um, go bowling!

Today, the insurance adjuster comes and tomorrow, DirecTV. Stay tuned.

  1. Desmokify is definitely a word; it’s a kissing cousin of dejunktify, which I tell my kids to do to their rooms every so often.
    So glad to hear progress is happening and that Mother Nature decided to change things up a bit.

  2. Tell Mama Nature that nobody, I mean NOBODY, should wear white before Memorial Day. But between you and me, it’s a nice improvement. Hang in there!
