Saturday - In other news the "almond" colored
vents in the front room were, in fact, gloss white. Ugghh. As I
mentioned to my sister Virginia, I really thought I was done with the whole
"antique gold" experience after repainting my parents house back in
Friday 12 January
Friday - Well,
Frontier failed to show up, again. I had to call them, and after
navigating their horrible phone maze (actually some random but kind employee
internally transferred me to the correct place) was told that there was a
"bridge tap issue identified by the engineer" and essentially not to call
them, they'd call me when things were setup.
Ever get the "Just.Doesn't.Care." vibe from the phone
company? Yeah. It's like living in the 1960's again. The lady I
talked to was nice, but the corporation she works for....
Thursday 11 January
Wednesday 10 January
Wednesday - Name change in the works for
the app. Sheryl discovered that "No Means Yes" is apparently a name
used date rape support group, said group being not for victims, but for
the perpetrators! What a world we live in...
Monday - Rain. The Lord knows we need
it. The RV is reasonably dry - I have a couple of buckets under the
air vents, but the bed and all my belongings are dry.
Budd was pretty concerned about the pitter-patter on the roof
however. He spent time on the streets, bad memories perhaps?
Sunday - I took a quick trip down to check on
the boat. With a big storm predicted I was concerned about ash from
the recent fires clogging the deck drains. I rinsed the decks off and
made sure the bilge pump had power. The aft pump isn't activating, but
the backup is. One more thing to fix, eventually.
I took a side trip to Ojai, to drop off a care package from S to her dad Don
and stepmom. It was nice up there. The kind of brutal summers
they have make me forget about the lovely winter climate.
I didn't actually see that much damage on the CA-33 going up, but Don says
there are some seriously burned over areas nearby.
Book #1 was Dreadnought
(Lost Colonies Trilogy Book 2), by B.V. Lawson.
Book #2 was Star
Carrier (Lost Colonies Trilogy Book 3), by B.V. Lawon. These
were straightforward space opera escapism...
