Yeah man, I remember the days of no air condtioning well, one of my favorite gripes about S Tx damned heat especially after a hard days work.
good luck

Though I grew up in Wyoming, my parents family was from Missouri.
As a kid, I hated going there because all the houses were so dark inside.
I didn't realize til much later that they were dark because of trying
to keep the house as cool as possible. (no air conditioning)
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Horses and cows eat almost anything - Watermelons - cantaloupe - Pumkins
When I had a Fruit Stand we had to TEACH them to break them Open (Left-overs at the END OF SEASONS)
I was paying 5 cent each foe Watermelons - 2 cents for cantaloupe - Free Pumkins(end of season) - $5 a field ben for #2 Corn and #2 Peppers

We also sold 2oz Cups of Grain for 50 cents so the Public could feed my animals - I had to send kids out to clean-out-the-feeder (and recup Grain for reSale)
