She was the lady making horseshoes
I was pretty sure the HVAC serviceman was walking well when she came into the house, but she got out of the repair van and nearly jogged to our door. But then when I opened the door, she was smiling and headed right down to the basement. She was there to check out our oil furnace, but I knew our child was downstairs in the playroom, so I went to check on him too. I yelled to him when I got into the basement, plus I heard him call back from the oil furnace room! After telling him to get out of the oil furnace room so that the HVAC serviceman would do her task, the tech told myself and others she was fine… They were having a wonderful chat while she worked. A minute later, the HVAC serviceman came upstairs with our child in tow. I noticed the HVAC tech was limping plus her knee looked stiff. She looked at our child and said, ‘I’ll be seeing you partner.’, and then sat down at the table. She showed me her HVAC work order plus told myself and others the oil furnace was wonderful for another year. I could not help wondering why she didn’t mention her knee problem beforehand. I finally asked if she was hurt in the basement. She laughed plus said our child wanted to play cowboy. She was the lady making horseshoes. She had to have a wooden leg, or she would not look like a woman from her dad’s number one tv show, Gunsmoke..She had been walking stiff legged for almost an hour and so her knee was locked up. Then the HVAC serviceman did some knee bends and walked out of the house.
