Putting Our Butts In a Place That Makes Us Happy

  1. A good Monday to all. I'd like to take a moment to badmouth AT&T -- our landline was out of service from the 26th to yesterday. I think they want people to be unhappy enough with their lousy service to remove their landlines so they won't have to support them anymore.

  2. Unless forced otherwise, we're keeping our landline, along with a phone that lacks every technology besides dialing out and receiving incoming calls, until the end of the world.

    We are also upgrading our doors! We have an appointment this morning to get estimates on a new front door and a new garage door. I'd love to replace our sliding glass doors as well, since they are also older and the genius who installed them put the screen slider panel on the inside, necessitating that the entire contraption be opened to the outdoors and then the screen slider re-closed in order to have an open screen to the backyard, BUT those doors are in pretty good shape, so we'll probably just have a service call on them eventually.

    Wishing you all a great week.

    1. I've been really surprised how happy the new doors have made me -- they seem like such a utilitarian thing but they really have a aesthetic appeal. And they open and close so nice too (the old ones had gotten cranky about that over the years).

  3. Ironic… when AT&T was a long-distance carrier, they were constantly looking for ways to get back IN to the landline business. Grass is always greener, eh?

    I took today off along with last week, so I have a day to change the oil in the car. I think I'll get the motorcycle ready to ride, too — no rain in the forecast until Thursday.

  4. Love these pictures! My cats are always convinced that I like to look at their butts.

    I love my landline and won't give it up! It is bundled with my cable so I hope that will remain for as long as I need it.

  5. All our problems with the landline (there was also a loud hum after they got the dial tone back) was caused by ants building huge nests on switches.
