Anyhoo… this satellite DISH stuff is for the birds. It’s been off more this month than all of last year! Oops! “Photographs and Memories” just ended. Let’s see what’s next. “I Got a Name!”
I’ve already written Genius’s letter for this week. Can’t print it, because HELLO there’s no internet. So the Ethernet or whatever I need for my printer to communicate is inoperable. But I DID address the envelope by hand.
The Pony must be happy that he took the trash dumpster up to the end of the driveway before supper. It’s a long walk in the rain!
This olden-days stuff is for the birds! How did people survive without the information superhighway? Thank you, Al Gore! But sadly, I’m now living an inconvenience truth. I guess I could build a fire, and have you all pull up a rock. Gather round for my story-tellin’. Good luck getting here, unless one amongst you has invented the wheel. Hope you’re not all…
“Wasted on the Way.”
One good thing about having Spotify open is that it tries to reconnect. So ALL my playlist will turn white when the internet is back again. Not holding out a lot of hope for that. It’s been down over an hour so far. So much time to make up everywhere you turn…
Let’s see. What to tell you next. We had leftover meatloaf for supper. And potato cakes made from last night’s mashed potatoes. Along with Hawaiian Rolls. We’re carb-loading ourselves into a stupor. Perhaps we sensed this outage coming. Hick is happily ignorant of the predicament The Pony and I are in.
“Baby I’m A-Want You.”
Surely somebody could have done better with that title, don’t you think? Perhaps it’s just…
“Part of the Plan.”
Gosh, it’s slow-going, trying to think of something interesting. Yes, I know I’ve failed. I can’t even check the weather radar to see if this stormed is almost past, or if there’s a huge swath of it still to come! We got our four-day house phone outage fixed today. So I guess in a way, I’m lucky. But…
“Operator, That’s Not the Way It Feels.”
It’s not like we use the house phone for anything but calls from Hick home, when he’s out running around, and I’m in bed waiting for a wake-up call, or in my dark basement lair. Okay. That’s about enough of this. You’ll read it, and you’ll curse me or be grateful. Right now I’m going to do a restart after unplugging the router. Sometimes that works. It DIDN'T.
When the TV came back, the internet didn't. Separate satellites. I unplugged the router. Then the internet DISH. Still no good. Troubleshooter kept telling me I had a bad Ethernet cable. That's what it often says when I only need to restart the router. But I called Troubleshooter's bluff!
I PLUGGED IN ANOTHER ETHERNET CABLE!
We had left it plugged into the router, strewn across the floor, from previous issues.
Printer does not...
