An early but productive day

Yesterday I woke up very early (for me) as something kept nagging at me...and it wasn't my mother...jajajaja :D

The telephone had been out since Sunday. I made an online appointment which was confirmed TWICE by Verizon via e-mail...it stated that the arrival time would be 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

I took out the trash early and opened the gate in preparation for their afternoon arrival as I was also going to head down to Stripes to buy breakfast.

All the neighbor dogs started barking and I heard the motor of a heavy vehicle...sure enough it was the phone guy!  Went outside to greet him and to let him know that I had an afternoon appointment and that my mother was asleep.

He stated that he could come back in the afternoon if I wanted but he was more than sure that he would not need to come inside the house.  With that cleared up, I told him to go ahead.  Sure enough the problem was at the pole, the wear and tear on the cable had snapped the line.


In reality it was a blessing in disguise as it wasn't even 9:00 a.m. and the problem was solved. Decided to take advantage of this and tackle the dreaded trip to the laundromat.  I spent a little shy of four hours there.  You do not know how good it felt to strike that off of my To Do List.


Once again I can not wish you a good night and Terlingua Dreams as it's morning...so have a great day instead.


Spurs Corner  

We are playing so good!  With a comfortable lead in the fourth quarter Pop is emptying out the bench and showcasing the talent and future potential of these young players.

Go Spurs Go!

  2. Glad your phone is fixed!!! A 4-pole connection that still worked had me grin as my friends and relatives make fun of me and my old flip phone and NO TEXTING. I am in the stone age but your setup made me smile - do you still have a rotary dial? hee hee - sorry, that was mean. Love what's going on in SPURSville!!! GSG, Sb
