I was sure the Heating plus A/C worker was walking just fine when he got to the house, then he got out of the service van and nearly jogged up to our door.
When I opened the door, he was smiling and then he went right down to the basement to check out our oil furnace.
I knew our child was downstairs in the playroom, so I went to check on them. I yelled to him when I got into the basement, and then I heard him call back from the oil furnace room. After telling him to get out of the oil furnace room if he was bothering the HVAC worker, the tech told me that he was fine, they were having an enjoyable chat. An hour later, the Heating plus A/C workers came upstairs with our child in tow. I noticed that the Heating plus A/C tech was limping. His knee really looked stiff. He looked down at our child and said that he would see him later. Then he sat down at the table. He showed me the work that he’d done and then he said that the oil furnace was going to be fine for another year. I couldn’t help wondering about why he didn’t mention his knee problem. I finally asked if he was hurt in the basement when they were playing. He just laughed and said that my son wanted to play cowboy. He happened to be the man making horseshoes. He had to have a wooden leg, or he would not look like the guy from his favorite TV show, Gunsmoke..He had been walking stiff legged for almost an hour. That made his knee lock up. Then the HVAC technician walked out of the house.
