Yep, I am going to try and cover three subjects this morning. Wish me luck. . . (grin)
Yesterday, my son cut down a tree that was partly dead and dying and dropping dead limbs over the fence onto our neighbor's property. He had two cables attached to it and to his Ford F-350 4x4 and to his big tractor. But, as you would expect, things didn't go according to plan. For some unknown reason, it fell parallel to the fence and part of it landed on the fence and its top few branches hit the top uninsulated power line and started arcing and smoking. So, I called the power company because that tree was hot; my son got shocked from it.
That sounds simple, right?? No, I was on the phone for quite awhile. First, had to go through computer generated questions (and nowhere was there a place to say it was an emergency). Finally, I got an option to talk to a real person. Yep, you guessed it, another long "on hold" until I finally got someone to talk to. They were real helpful and said luckily they had a crew working late not far from me and they would come and take care of the problem, which they did:
With that taken care of last night, and with the electric back on (and the AC), we got back to a normal life. Of course I had to dream about fishing and catching a huge sting ray:
Yes, I know it is a leaf, but it looks like a sting ray to me. I guess I need to go fishing, it has been too long since I have.
Today, a friend of ours stopped by. He is the one that owns a twin to my Jeep. They are identical except his is not four wheel drive. They wanted their picture taken together (yes, I know I have posted the two of them together in the past, but they insisted).
OK, had enough excitement and enough being out in the humidity. I reached out with my hand to grab a mosquito that was buzzing me and just got a handful of water. . . Now, you all stay cool and dry and have a great day, you hear?
