We Spent HOURS Without Internet!

Vintage102aWell, a couple of hours anyway. Workmen were putting in a new phone line for my neighbor and they (accidently) cut mine. Luckily, I let them know just before they hauled ass outta here thinking they were finished. Took them a couple of hours to find the break and repair it.

But, what HELL I went through not being able to check my e-mail. Unable to browse the Net. I’m traumatized. My life will never return to NORMAL.

Nah, I checked my mail on my 4-G tablet and did stuff outside in the warm sunshine. It was almost like being a kid again. Except for being really Old. But me and the Dog took off all our clothes and went for a walk and by the time we got back the Internet was fixed. They did a great job and were totally responsive to getting the problem fixed. If I had had to call CenturyLink I’d be lucky if it was fixed by 2018. Dec.

Not a whole heck of a lot going on around here. Made a Bank & PO run before the workmen started tearing up our road. After they started I was pretty much stuck at the house; but that’s okay. I’d rather be here anyway. Did get my usual chores done also.

DevilGirl02aOh, worked on my little generator some more. Took the fuel bell thingie off and made sure all that was cleaned out. Gas is getting through the float thingie. (Look, I’d be the first to admit I’m about as much a mechanic as a left-handed lug wrench. Don’t start!) It still will only run when I spray ether directly in the intake. Looks like I’ll need to buy another for this weekend; I just don’t have time to drop it off and get it fixed before Field Day.

And that’s pretty much it. Really.

Yes. Old. Forgetful. Lazy. And More!

That’s my Mom & Her Dad at a family reunion many years ago. Tried posting this .gif on FB, which it did, but it wouldn’t move. So though I’d try it here. Appears to be working. Sometimes I miss Mom. Only been 25 years since she moved on.

Not a whole lot went on around here yesterday. It was mostly cooler, cloudy, and wet so I didn’t get outside much. Just long enough to half disassemble my little 900 watt generator to try to clean the fuel line and get it to working. Nope. Still won’t run unless I spray eiter directly in the intake. Stops as soon as I quit doing that. Looks like I’m going to have to take it to my friend in Allyn.

Did get to go pick myt Lovely-Young-Bride at the Ferry Landing last night. She was tired.

Today has been our usual Saturday so far. Right now I’m kinda sorta sitting around waiting for SWMBO to get home from the Genealogy Library so we can go out. Think we’ll hit Shelton today and find whatever we find.

Annnnnddddd, forgot to post this last night. My Bad. Not that anything in particular was going on. Just got to talking to my Schweetie and it got to be bedtime. We did get to Shelton, to Sister’s Restaurant again; where I had the chili burger, again. It was just as good the 2nd time! Then we shopped at WalMart’s instead of Safeway before getting home.

Father’s Day today. Not that it’s really anything special around this house. Mostly just another day of laundry and catching up on things I didn’t manage to get done during the week. Once you Retire, weekends aren’t that special really. (Except SWMBO gets to spend more time with me. That’s pretty Special.)

So I got out and mowed the front and front-upper lawns. SWMBO came home from church while I was out there so I had to stop and give her a hug. She wished me Happy Father’s Day. She’s making dinner now. Some kind of tuna steaks …

And that is pretty much it. The MCARC 2-meter Sunday Evening Chat Net is in a bit and I’ll do that. Not much else for tonight though. Laundry done. Dishes done. SWMBO’s about to be …
