So, yesterday also, my modem went kaput. Turned off. Long story. Called phone company. I could order a new modem. Decided to wait and talk to Brian (IT and phone company savy) Called the cell of our phone guy, Bob, and while on the phone trying to leave a message on his cell, the modem came back on. I hung up. Next thing Bob is calling me. Said neighbors having trouble with their phone and he wanted to come up and check phone lines (they go through my property) I told him why I had called and he laughed and said this was "weird" like Twilight Zone. He'll be up here today sometime. I hope it all stays on!
Law Enforcement/Fire luncheon was good and fun. Had good story telling time! I had a grilled "big bird" which is turkey bacon and cheese. YUMMMMMM!

All I know. Nuff said. Ciao.
