Ummmm, I have an old-fashioned phone, though I do have text now. No internets. No dial up any more. No wireless card, no hot spot, nada. I shall be haunting the coffee shop, the library, even *gasp* McDonald's if I have to.
But I'm in a pretty good mood about it. It put things into perspective, though I'm not looking forward to the repair bill. I suspect new cable will have to be run and it's quite a distance from dish to the house. (Because, like, it's a big, ugly, dish-on-a-pole and we chose to hide it behind some bushes.)
Here, have a photo or two of Weatherdude using a chainsaw on the last of the Eastern Cedars along the driveway. They've been severely damaged in the last couple of winters and we decided to finish what the snow and ice began.
Do you know, after all these years (35 if you count dating), he can still make my heart go pitter-pat.
In other news, now that you've all ooh'd and ahh'd over Weatherdude using his chainsaw, we added six young hens to the coop on Friday. They're feisty (which is good), but still too stupid to come in out of the rain or go to bed at dusk. So last night and tonight, Weatherdude threw them into the coop. By tonight, three went in when chased. It takes about a week of this for them to get the point, that the coop is safe in the dark. And today he found a pullet egg, so one of them is already laying!
