Who is to say...who is the winner?

Seven days into 2017...I am finally able to make a post!  To be totally honest with my readers...I have no idea how I even have a blog!!!

To refreshen your memory, I got my computer out of my bedroom along with my big screen television set, in order to get some very needed sleep. Did it work?  Of course, it did...that is why I have not had a chance to make even one post thus far.

Not to give total credit to being able to go to sleep at a normal hour without being able to make a post, but the Val Verde County Library played a big role on this as well.  You see, the library has been undergoing a remodelling for two plus years and it is still not completed.

Wanting to use their computers, called them last week only to get a voice recording saying that they would "tentatively" be opened for business on January 3rd.  Drove by there on Friday, January 6th only to be told by a construction worker that the library would be closed until further notice.

Of course, my DISH TV and the Internet have been having fits only because the temperature dropped well below freezing...just four more months until this darn two-year contract is over...actually until the Spurs season comes to an end that this DISH nightmare will be over and done with!

We have had our hands full.  Only in the first days of January, we have had three doctors appointments with two of them being out-of-town.

Today, I said goodbye to my diet and went out and bought me some menudo. The place I purchase it from makes the best in Del Rio, except for today...they piled on the salt! Obviously, some new employee made it.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

  2. I have Dish TV and it works great except when it is too cloudy and overcast with very thick storm clouds does it go off for a coupe of minutes. Are you sure that your dish antenna is pointed correctly??

    1. My main gripe with DISH is that its Internet is very slow and it goes out frequently.

      The TV part is not as important to me unless I am watching one of my Spurs games or my foreign soap operas.

      They have been out three times since I signed up for their service to "tweak" the signal to no avail.

  3. I hope you get things worked out. There is nothing in the way or sports or anything else that makes me even want TV, so I'm glad I dropped it. If I had one I would probably be surfing channels and it would be the same old stuff!

    1. If it wasn't for my Spurs and the fact that without cable you would have a blank TV in Del Rio, I too would drop it.

  4. Having lived out in the boonies, I had satellite internet for quite a few years. It's just slow. That's it. And it's hard to be patient with it. But I'm glad you are, and that you keep on posting.
