finally, my weekend update...late

Good morning.
It's so good to have the Internet again!
And now to bring you up to speed in our boring life. :-)
Last Sunday, after coming home from cleaning the Salon, I was doing a blog post and loading some pics when all of a sudden the page froze. I soon discovered my Internet connection was gone. I rebooted the modem....nothing. I rebooted the router.....nothing. I restarted my puter.....nothing. So a call to tech support eventually was determined that my modem went bad. They would ship it out asap and I should have it Monday or Tuesday. Of course, I didn't receive it until Wednesday.
Anyway, with no Internet, I had a lot of free time. I got nearly the entire mo-ho waxed. I scrapped and peeled caulking from the windshield and reapplied. The windshield leaks thanks to all the vibration from the roads, and when I first caulked it it was great, but all the vibration eventually cracks the new caulking and I have to redo it. Fortunately, the water just gets on the dash.
Monday found me cleaning the windows on the mo-ho, and weeding and deadheading in the garden. Craig while always busy with bookwork and laundry, mowed the yard and fixed a wonderful cheese layered meatloaf for dinner with asparagus and scalloped potatoes.

Tuesday morning with no Internet got me in a cleaning mood and I scrubbed the kitchen from top to bottom. Craig was beginning to like me without Internet service.
Then we worked on fixing the car kaddy fenders. They put plastic fenders on the kaddy, and over the last few years, cracks have developed around the lights on both of them.
So we decide to give it some extra support.We drilled a hole in the center, and added another pressure screw.

It's not a real screw, but a plastic thingy with rows of flexible threads that fold when you push it through a hole, and spring back out to catch and hold.

It worked real good. Then I got some super glue to seal the cracks. We'll see if this helps any.
Then it was pork cutlets on the grill with baked potatoes and corn on the cob.
And of course, Wednesday was back to work.
See, you didn't miss a whole lot did you?


  1. I'm not sure what I'd do without internet for so long! Egads!

  2. Haha. Was good to hear from you, brother. :)

  3. I still want to know how routers go bad... mine did so a few months back. It didn't stop the internet but slowed it down to a crawl.

  4. Computer problems are the worst, aren't they? I go nuts when I don't have access to my e-mail.
