Confluence of Events

Besides the progress on the internet front, I also have progress on my AFOs. My guy in the orthodics game just SMS'd me that my leg braces were in from manufacture.  In ther words of the A-team character Hannibal, "I love out when a plan comes together." Things were still happening during the shutdown after all. 👍

End of My Summer of Discontent Draws Nigh (Hopefully, st least partly)

This morning after eating my cereal, I heard commotion and was told that a line was being run four internet connectivity. That's the hope anyway. They said that fit a few hours ther internet would be down.  I thought, 'a few hours, try thr past few months. At hear, there is palpable positive progress. 👍

The Lockdown Beard

Three days ago urged on bu the chiding of my college brother, I decided to grow a pandemic/lockdown/resultant depression/protest beard.  My buddy from college commented that I should grow out my beard like my moustache. So, I sousse I shall be Red Beard the Captive Capitalist. My maternal grandfather had sideburn hair (he was Irish Dutch American)  I have ab Auburn/ Red/ Blonde moustache. Time iis nigh to see whether the carpet matches the drapes. I also got word that my cousin from California currently in Chi-town is also doing the lockdown scruff. Haven't let it go since high school. Ala Trump, "We'll see what happens. "

So, I guess I'm a ZOOMer now

I knew i was on the precipice Gen X and millennials (still holding with Gen X), but rather liking the ZOOM function on my tech. Today I used it to have a meeting with my counselor (shrink). I'm asserting I'm still young enough to be able to get most of this technology intuitively, it's not like I'm a BOOMER; however technology does at times pose impediments without the latest and greatest tech; id est, sans Wi-Fi, I was relegated to smartphone, which was indubitably more difficult than chromebook, and also a drain to my data plan.   That's probably accountable to Verizon v. Google.

Technical Difficulties

My hiatus was so elongated, because the house experienced internet connectivity difficulties (there was a fraying of the internet cable connecting the house to the internet provider) repairs are still forthcoming. So, I shall still blog sparingly, but still more. 

There's Always a Way, Even if Suboptimal

Recently my cable provider has been repairing a cable into the house (still is an ongoing process). As such, they turned off the wi-fi internet connection; so, I eas un able to blog from m my chromebook. However, I just had three brain flash that I can blog via my mobile data on my phone. I suppose this is afn insurance where the phone is more powerful than the laptop. Pr it just takes thinking outside the desk.
