This is a custom made table to fit the high chairs? 

Cool!

PS It is 80 degrees in here right now. It is 71 outside and 90% humidity..

It was almost 90 (in the house, 81 outside) when I came home for lunch and put the AC on.  The ac brought it down to 74, but I turned it off so the cats could get out on the porch and get some light and air, when I came home for work.

It's a nice night, outside. But not inside.  I can't bear to shut the house up and subject us all to that dreadful noise any more this evening.

Gosh aren't I just a ray of sunshine today,. haha.

PS again regarding the fan, it's only my fault I am fanless at the moment.  I should ahve ordered the amazon one the first time that expensive one broke.

I don't want an ac in my bedroom.  I hate the ac as it is. I can't stand the noise and having the house all shut up and it's been like that all summer long this year.  It's a nightmare.

The fan is bad enough, but necessary.  It wouldn't be quite so bad if there was any place else to put it besides right next to my bed.  But that's the only place.

But no I couldn't use one of those anyway, even if I did have any expendable income right now. I have casement windows.  Putting in the window unit in my living room is a very big deal every year.  The entire window has to be taken out.  My friend built a frame for the ac. The window gets taken out and the frame screed in, and the ac put into the frame.

Then I tape up the cracks with duct tape and we reverse the process in the fall.

Sorry it's so blurry. And sorry I'm so grouchy. The heat is impossible. Thanks for trying. I love you for it. kissyou

Speaking of dinner tables...
We had that table for more years then I can remember.  Hubby wanted one of those bar height tables for a looooong time.  When my mother passed away, we "traded" our table for her bar height table.  Goodwill picked it up. 

Cats love the new table!  We HATE it. 

Old table seated 8 people.  We could add 4 more chairs, and everyone still be fairly comfortable. 
Bar height table seats 6.  We could add two more chairs, but who has spare bar height chairs!  The bar stools, at the counter, are much shorter. 
New table also has permanent seat cushions... cat hair big time!  More work.  I bought covers and remove them when we have guests. 

We went to a few Goodwill places... hoping to buy our old table back.  No luck.   Silly7

UPDATE:

After looking for months and months, we have decided to have someone make us a table and chairs.  Price is just a bit more then a thrift store table/chairs that isn't what we really want.  Price is much LESS then tables/chairs we found that we did like.

Any chance you could put a portable a/c unit in your room... have it vent out a window?  You did some pretty good handy work with your screened porch, that is the ONLY reason I am mentioning it. 
I have one like the one in the link.  It vents out the cat door.  There are mannnny different sizes, options, and prices.

It will get there. You and the furries will make it. No other choice.

That is true because no one has fans (locally) this time of year.  Of course the weather has turned insufferable again and my bedroom is hot and stuffy even at the best of times. What the hell I never sleep anyway so what's the difference I suppose.

What gets me are those rodents for lack of better words who manage to get funds and support intended for those who need and deserve it. But - welcome to a perfect world.
All we can do is move on, heal, help and hold our heads up. Not a bad one for someone who took 30 years to get US citizenship?

People want international disasters in a rinsed and cleaned up format for daily viewing.

Friends called me at work - from Spain. I then woke SO up in NC. Then I woke friends on the West Coast up. All of us lost friends, former coworkers and even family that day.

That fan is a piece of junk. The blades keep falling off.

  I'm taking it back. At the moment I am fanless until the one I just ordered from Amazon gets here.
