CHAOS WITHOUT HAZARD

We have been without a home telephone land line, thus we have been without our computer (since we have dialup) for over 72 hours. This lengthy outage was not caused by tornado, hurricane or earthquake. It seems a wire was cut and the search for this breakage took many, many hours. The best part was continuing to call AT&T to determine progress on the repairs only to be told over and over via recording to check for updates through the internet. It was like having salt rubbed in the wound.

Thanks for the comments and encouragement on our grand nephew Owen. He is home with his parents and all looks good over the horizon. He will have to be monitored closely for a while, but what newborn arriving home is not monitored closely? We are all so very thankful for this great outcome.

I better get busy because I've got a lot of blog reading to catch up on:-)

  5. Yippee Owen! I love that name, and I love that they named him after your papa. Can't go wrong being named after a great man like that.

    I'm glad you're back on-line and happy with the VP choice. It's all so exciting!

  9. Don't you hate it when the computer is down! Most folks have cell phones now so the land line being out isn't so bad.

    Glad to hear about Owen!
