The gas man finally showed up at 2:45PM. He left at 4:35PM. no, he didn't find anything wrong, just had to drill an vent hole for the regulator that somebody forgot to install many, many many years ago. but then, he discovered he also had 3 dead Black and Decker drill batteries. so while waiting for his pardner to arrive with a working drill, we talked and talked and he got to know my cat scooter and I heard about his gas company,s policies and all the folks he deals with. It was a wonderful way to spend a beautiful afternoon.
