Yesterday I took the duck to see the surgeon, he was in there less than five minutes and the incision had been deadened, cut, drained, and bandaged and he was back in the car. We went to Panera Bread to eat while we waited for his antibiotic to be ready to be picked up, a quick stop at the fruit stand and homeward bound. I was changed and in the pool by 11:50 in the bright sunshine. And out of the pool at 11:59 in the stormy rain, lots of thunder too. Came out of nowhere. I waited 45 minutes in my (wet) bathing suit to get back in and finish but no, it kept raining and storming so I gave up and came back upstairs. I got my clothes on to wait for Comcast.
And it rained. And rained. And rained some more.
Comcast arrived 10 minutes before 5, 10 minutes early and stayed until almost 7:30.
He worked really really hard trying to fix it, looking everywhere for the "splitter". It seems the wiring is old and needs to be rewired. Didn't I say that a month ago? Yes I did. No matter, it will be done soon.
Cable boxes, I have them. Do they work? Well for now. What that means is as soon as Comcast sends another signal it won't work again. Or the power flickers.
And still it rained, until all was done and he was gone and it was too late to swim today. Then it got nice out again.
Today I have canasta and lunch at the club. The bottom line with the cable is I am expecting an email to tell me when they will be back. And if I have to pay for it.
