Last night our internet was on the blink, which seems to be happening too much. Worse, when we rented that house at the lake when we first moved here, they had a 2 year contract. We knew we wouldn’t be there 2 years but it was the ONLY internet we could get out there and we thought we’d be there 6 months but we ended up only staying 3 and not only did we continue to pay a hefty rent for the remainder of the 6 month lease, but we’re still paying about $60 a month for internet that we’re not using, plus paying for internet here . . which hasn’t been so great lately! No one should ever accuse us of not doing our part to help the economy!
But last night, at first I could only get on gmail.com and then I could also get on facebook.com. What else really matters? Oh . . yes, patchworktimes.com matters a whole lot to me. I thought . . what if this blasted internet goes out again for a week and figured I should at least get the “What’s on the Needles” post up. So, at 11:00 p.m., I braved the coyotes and snakes and jackrabbits and walked over to the sewing room to see if the internet was working any better over there. It’s a whole different setup there. It was working better but not graet so I quickly did the post before I lost everything and I made a typo — typed in August 21, instead of August 31. At the rate I’ve been going lately, that was minor but thanks to a blog reader . . the first thing I saw this morning when checking email was a note that I had the wrong date.
Just now, I was fixing to type the UFO number and I typed “July UFO Number”, then said . . no, that isn’t right, and typed in “August UFO Number” and said . . no, that still ain’t right. Either I’m losing what little bit of a brain I ever had or time is passing so quickly, I just cannot keep up.
So . . who among you is saying “Shut the heck up and give us the danged number!”? Remember Vince is off today and my whole day has been screwed up. I look so forward to him retiring!
Since I can’t think of anything else to say . . the UFO number for September . . yes . . September, is:
If you finished or made significant progress on your UFO for August, which was number 7 if I have that right . . please add a link here.
