Mid - Week

Well, there is not too much going on here this week. The weather has been very nice . We have had sunshine for the most part. We also had a few clouds and it looked as if it might rain but they went away making room for more sunshine. After all those cloudy snowy days when we thought we would never see the the sun again- it is a very welcome sight.

On another note, got a home phone installed this week. Comcast was having a special. Home telephone, internet and cable for $99. Since the price of cable and internet went up to $115 it only made sense. The gentleman they sent out was very nice and the telephone was installed. Then it started - the dreaded telemarketing racket. Seven telemarketing calls the day after it was installed. and the telemarketing company even knew the name. You can't tell me they don't sell their lists. It is maddening when you have not given your number to anyone and the phone never stops ringing. Registering for the Do Not Call list at is great but it takes 30 days. I may be a madwoman by then.

Another sad thing happened this week. Charlie Ryan passed away at the age of 92. He wrote and performed the song, Hot Rod Lincoln. You made have heard it. Charlie was just the nicest fellow you would ever want to meet. I will write a separate story about him and my experiences with him. Rest in Peace, Charlie.

and in the words of my father, "That's it for Today".
