Last weekend I put an exhaust fan in the ceiling for my wife's grandfather. After a bunch of hours spent in The Hottest Attic In The Universe, he had a ceiling fan that ducted to the side of his house.

I only miss what I used to do in the back of them.
I have some catalogs from the EARLY 60’s from Fredericks of Hollywood. Boy howdy, have the undies changed.
