When we came in from working outside this morning - yes, another mild morning- we had no communication! We bundle our services with Comcast, and for some unknown reason we lost all service. That means no phone, no TV, and worst of all, no Internet! I used my cell phone to call Comcast, and since there was no outage in the area, it must be here at the house. We have an appointment with the cable guy here tomorrow morning. We went off this afternoon to see Jake and take him a pot of spring flowers for his porch and a new Sounders rain jacket, which he can wear tomorrow night when we all go again to Qwest Field for another soccer match. Jake promised me that he would take it easy. He is OK, but experiencing a lot of fatigue. On the way back home, it occurred to me that I might be able to make Internet contact using my wireless mini, Suzie,as I call her, and a signal I used to "borrow" from a neighbor before we got a wireless router in our house. Sure enough, I picked up a weak signal downstairs. After dinner I brought Suzie upstairs to our home office and the signal is much stronger. Suzie is slow and harder to read and type on, but at least I'm connected! Now if I just had a way to watch my TV shows tonight. I guess we might have to go rent a movie. I know I'd never stay awake reading.
