Bridging the Gap

High speed, low speed? Read no speed. On December 31st our paid account with our former ISP expired. Our new hook-up didn’t kick in until after the holiday(s) on the 3rd. That only after an hour’s worth of phone calls and experiments and Tech Support walk-throughs. No sooner were the kinks worked out, than the house phone line went out bringing the Internet and land line communications to a standstill. That problem got fixed on Thursday about fifteen minutes before our houseguest arrived and computer problems were shuffled to the bottom of the list.

All this to explain the gap in postings here and my apparent vanishing into the ether. We are all present and accounted for and joyfully celebrating the cessation of holiday doings and a return to what passes for normalcy here in Wood Village. Not to say we didn’t have a great time eating too much, sleeping too little, talking till our throats hurt, singing till we forgot the words. But…

It is, though, a welcome relief to return to boredom which has its value as a balance for all the excitement. Can you believe it is Two Thousand and SIX? Only yesterday we were worrying about Y2K.

Bear with me here. I am putting up the postings that got skipped because I already wrote them and I like them and I know you missed your daily dose of musings. So let’s work our way back past Epiphany and the 2nd to New Year’s Day.
