|Is This Thing On?|
May 22, 2020
Around 2:30 Monday afternoon (May 18 ), I was talking to Susie on the phone, when the phone suddenly went dead. We lost the internet, too. Turned out a crew working on drainage pipes or something had managed to sever the at&t cable.
Mom called att&t, and the repairman came on Tuesday, but there was nothing he could do. He said it could be weeks before it was repaired. I didn’t miss the phone, but I sure miss having the internet.
I’m glad we don’t have everything bundled together, so we still had cable TV. And it would’ve been a lot worse if the crew had hit the power line! We had our cell phones for necessary calls (refilling Rx, contacting Marcy) So, this was inconvenient, but not cataclysmic.
I was awakened at 9 this morning by the telephone ringing. I was never so happy to hear it ring!
On Wed, Marcy came and Nougat had her spa day. Nougat knew something was up when I put her leash on her half an hour before Marcy came. When she arrived, I brought Nougat to the door before Marcy rang the bell, so Nougat wouldn’t have a chance to go hide, or jump on my bed. She tried to head to my room, but I handed Marcy the leash (she was wearing a mask, btw), and Nougat walked right out the door to her, and promptly peed on the sidewalk. (it’s a cocker thing). She walked along with Marcy with no hesitation, and jumped right into the van.
She looks, and smells, wonderful. And for once it hasn’t rained within hours of her grooming, so she’s actually stayed clean for more than a day!
OK. That’s all for now. It’s a relief to be back.
