• Our internet mysteriously disappeared for about 36 hours last week. It just as mysteriously reappeared. And then yesterday disappeared again. Just another example of the capricious nature of the technological world. We have a technician coming to look at it this evening. I hope the tech is able to fix it because OH THE WITHDRAWAL!
• Dr. M has been ferociously attacking my computer with anti-thises & anti-thats. I have some sort of sickness on there & he is bound & determined to locate it & destroy it (yes, at this point he’s feeling just a wee bit violent about the whole thing).
• Our garage door is even more busted. This is just from it doing its job – going up, going down. Apparently that job was just too much for the poor thing & it rent itself like the veil of the temple. Well maybe not exactly like that. After never having a garage before we lived here I’m amazed at how inconvenienced I feel now that I can’t use it. Spoiled much? [Note: I just got a call from the property manager – they’re sending someone to measure the thing tomorrow!]
• The white lights on our “palm” tree have died. One strand died last week, then Sunday night we were sitting in the living room & noticed that the remaining lights were extra bright. They stayed that way before winking out forever. I guess it was their last hurrah. Sigh. Where are we gonna find Christmas lights in April to replace these?
But all is not lost – because I found one of these in our yard:
[Imagine a picture of a four leaf clover since my internet is dead to me]
[Imagine picture of four leaf clovers in a Bible. I used to collect them in my Bible – I have several dozen.]
