Off the Communication Grid

Y'know that cable bundle that costs the size of a modest car payment? Mine went completely out for 48 hours. Besides the series of expletives I was thinking...cause their calls are monitored for quality control...I finally had to drive to a nearby BP station to make a call to my son so he could spend the 45 minute wait to report my outage. Instead of maintaining my anger, I set up my laptop for Mom to watch dvd movies and found an old transistor radio so she could get her news.A little 20th/21st century for her. Me, I am listening to the Shannara series on audio so my hands were free. And what does she do to stay calm and stay out of trouble...make Genie bottles. LOL After the cable was restored, I checked my messages. Besides all the regular type calls, there were four messages from the cable company telling me that if I did not respond to the massages to verify my appointment for the repair, they would not come to the house. Just telling you about it makes all those unsaid expletives to come roaring into my mind! I suppose I will wait until Monday to request a credit for 48 hours of no communication, which will no doubt take at least another 45 minutes. Grrr. Yep, gotta wait. LOL Their calls are monitored.

First Craft Booth Since 1986

It has been awhile since I did the craft booth thing...well, the local type. New York and Las Vegas don't count. LOL I have finally recovered enough from all that unhealthy, death scare stuff to make new work and consider a four hour Senior Center craft fair. I am terribly embarrassed about it but I need to see how I'll do...physically, that is. I couldn't pass the chance to share my little piece of chaos!
