My great uncle Pedro owns a strikingly important tract of land on the north side of town, just past the normal town limits! He is not a blood relative, but he plus my dad came up together as kids on the streets, plus forged a bond stronger than any I’ve ever seen. When he went on to college and succeeded in life, he made sure my father plus his whole family succeeded, as well. Pedro happily retired years ago, plus handed his company over to my dad! Now that my dad is retiring as well, they want to deliver the company to me plus spend all their time out in nature. Pedro isn’t really what you’d call exactly a hippie, but he opposing climate control systems in any of the wonderful old buildings on his property. Space furnaces plus wood burning furnaces are ok, at least come Wintertime, but he doesn’t allow a/c somewhere on his property. He says he simply doesn’t believe in it, which perplexes me, because AC is a real thing, how can you actually not “believe” in it? It’s not something you can argue the existence of, like god and angels, it’s a device that blasts cooling air into your face. I think what he sincerely means is that he intellectually opposes what a/c represents, which I can respect to some degree even if I disagree. Of course the greatest irony of this huge situation is that he started a company that makes air filters for cooling systems. Most of his sales come from important bulk wholesale orders placed by Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C companies for their modern device models.
