I just got my internet back. A truck took out my cable this morning.
So I'm catching up.

I'm glad the truck didn't take out your house, or car, or tree, or.......

Alternating sitting on our balcony overlooking the ocean, and packing our suitcases for the return trip to the land of ice and snow.

I guess something must have loosened it and it was hanging to low across the road. A tractor trailer caught it. At least I found out about it right away and could report it.

Hoot had that happen too, fairly recently. Also had an internet mishap, they strung the cable over the road after it was dug up and destroyed, and the cars kept running over it.

Glad the tractor trailer driver is ok, and that your Internet is back.

I'm editing a document from h#ll, simmering a ham bone on the stove for stock, roasting some carrots for that soup in the oven, and kicking myself in the butt for procrastinating on finishing this edit.

We got a Chevy Aveo instead and it is great. But that is TB's car for work and we want something bigger for me and "us" which, includes the dogs. I am thinking a Dodge Grand Caravan.

And our neighbour who works for ICBC (our provincial auto insurance) said that the scratch looks small, but should probably be at the very least filled or it may crack deeper, specially with all the up and down weather we are having. He is going to see if we would be covered for that. The wiper arm may be covered too because it was due to a "weather accident" and not just wear and tear.

OK? He helped me carry the dog food he was delivering to me inside Yes, nothing like if he had hit the pole or something, it was simply hanging too low.
He was apologetic, but something catches either my internet cable or phone line every couple years or so. If you ask me there's way too much slack in those lines, but the electric is the same way and just above the other two.
