We are here. We are alive, we however are off the grid. Our cable company guaranteed us service by the 20th. They did show up, but only to inform us that it would be at least a month before they could install the cable from the road. Once we called the main office we were told that it should have been surveyed and ran when we ordered it. The installer Shane, said he didn't care if we cancelled it wasn' t his problem. All of this normally wouldn't matter except that Mom works from home. We called Dish network and they came out to install the net only to tell us they couldn't because we had no tv.
On the bright side, we have a family of geese, the dogs love the beach and their yard, the turtle and tortoise are setup and doing well, and the cats are loving their windows.
I am blogging from my phone while waiting for dinner, and the flowers are blooming. Life is good off the grid.
