OK, so I missed a letter. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Brunhilde, I'm sorry. I promise to feed you some D1 in the winter.

The heat is softening the outside sealant on the window from petrified to something that resembles that from the La Brea Tar Pits. I think I might be able to get the window out and install the AC this weekend. The evenings have been very nice. They cool down to the point where I have actually crawled under the federbett. The 80 cm x 80 cm pillows are absolutely fantastic! 85% goose feathers, 15% goose down. They support everything from the shoulder up.

Capt I was able to get the windows out pretty easily. Unscrew the holder on the rib then shoved a putty knife in between cracks on the outside and inside. Then lowered the window and pulled from the top. It just kinda popped right out and back in.

Not so easy on mine. Mine was, as I found out, a hangar queen during her last year of service. The caulking was petrified! I mean ROCK HARD! I managed to get the caulking out of the inside with little difficulty. The outside? My arms aren't that long! So, I've had to work at it using a linoleum knife. I'm almost done, the high temps helping soften the bead.

Mine was pretty easy. Just removed the two screws and washers from each post. A little pulling and that was it. No other tools or anything. Me and a friend literally had all of the windows removed in 10 minutes.

Window came out grudgingly last night. That caulk was PETRIFIED!
