Modem Down ~ Roast Veggies/Poached Egg ~ Speeding In A School Zone ~ The Bruise Naps

Good afternoon. Very dark and cloudy. 42ยบ. Some rain has come down, not much.The pressure is dropping rapidly.

Got a picture from dear old friend, Terry Polly aka 'Da Pully' former mechanic at Temple Station... he now lives in Idaho. So far yesterday they had 6" of the white stuff....

We may get some here too.

Yesterday afternoon my modem took a dive again and this time it did not come back on.

I had an appointment with my ENT in the afternoon. Then it was a trip to Costco. I forgot several things and remembered them on my way home. DANG! Dropped off the items Patty and Cliff wanted and sat, had a cocktail, and visited for a bit. Nice. Dropped PJ's request off, home and still no modem. Grrrrrrr........

Call into phone company guy, Bob, at 8am this morning. He said he was swamped today and couldn't stop by until tomorrow morning. Said it would take 2 days for a modem to get here so I decided, at Brian's urging, to go to Staples and get a modem/router and hook it up. Got one, stopped at market, and home. Tried to hook it up, but wasn't working. Called Brian, he was busy with clients, and called back with suggestions. Just then Bob called and said he was on his way up the road from me and would stop and help. Such a GREAT guy! He was here and now gone and everything working wonderfully well. YEAH.

Brian, via phone, helped me set the password in my iPad. OMG, his mother can be sooooooo dumb at times! He's a love and puts up with me. ♥

Breakfast was heated up roasted veggies with poached eggs.

On my way into town to get the modem, in front of our high school (where idiots NEVER go the speed limit of 20mph) here was a Deputy doing the 'work of the Lord' ... citing a speeder! YES!!!

Life is so exciting around here he even had backup for a citation! LOL
