Good 37º ice on the barn roof morning.
and the turkeys are out and about...
10-13 is radio code speak for "advise weather and road conditions".
I got my Alert 1 and hooked it up yesterday. The phone hooks into the machine and the machine hooks into the phone line. I pushed the button on the bracelet and Jaden answered with, "Susan Maxwell do you need help?" I told him it was the test as I just hooked it up. He verified my information, address etc. Really nice. So, if I fall down and can't reach my wine or have a heart attack in bed, push the button, they will call Brian and tell him to come check on me! Or if he doesn't answer or suggests they do... they will call 911. I feel much better now. A big sigh of relief. The machine is on my desk..
But... since I have Bruiser who climbs on everything in the house except the kitchen counters.. I put a basket over the machine so he can't step on it accidentally and set it off!
....and yes you ancient deputies... that is an old LASD flashlight! It's a Bright Star No. 1626 and says Property of Los Angeles County. When I went to turn it in, they just said, keep it! They didn't need any antiques!

Columbus Day Observed
Christopher Columbus arrived in the Americas on October 12, 1492. Now..... the extreme lefties in Seattle have changed the name of Columbus Day to "Indigenous People's Day".
GAWD!!!! The lefties want to change everything in this country that we have loved and revered. They want no more flag salutes, no God in anything, and they want to run every corner of our lives! Excuse me while I puke!
