Our Uncle Raymond was such a fun person to be around and he always made us all laugh.
He was such a happy soul.
During most school holidays, mom would ask if my sisters and I wanted to stay home or go stay with our Uncle Raymond. My sisters and I chose to spend time with Uncle Raymond. He quit his job a while back. Now, he builds unique lake home furniture from his backyard out in the countryside. Uncle Raymond also had a 10-acre farm at the most beautiful location I’ve ever seen. Last Summer, my sisters and I had the choice of going to Summer camp or to the farm. My sisters went camping, but I went to the farm because Uncle Raymond taught me so much about furniture making. He also paid me for any work that I did and money was a big deal to a thirteen year old. Mom drove me there, stayed the night, and then left early the next afternoon because of work. Our first day was good, but the next morning, we both woke up to a hot house. That was bizarre because Uncle Raymond had set the cooling system before we went to bed. He went to check the temperature control and tried to change the settings, but nothing changed unfortunately. It seemed there was a miscommunication between the cooling system and temperature control. Uncle Raymond lived not far from a town where there was an expert AC mechanic. Uncle Raymond called him to book an emergency repair since he had a service agreement with her dealer. The cooling system mechanic came over as fast as he could and noticed the temperature control was faulty. It was a smart temperature control whose software hadn’t been updated in some time, causing the miscommunication.
