And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the blog watcher! It works GREAT! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Awwww Shoe,
I have a cup like that, more of a mug, though. And it's been all over this state, and into a few that surround me. Same thing, though.
Sometimes my cup runneth over with memories, much like yours!

Cheers from my cup to yours!

Thanks, Vic and Sharon.

Yeh, that cup started out with some great friends on that trip! Hope we all do it again sometime. "Have cup, will travel"!

I suppose it really is a mug, eh Sharon? One of the modern-age ones? Maybe next trip I get to take I'll carry an ATP mug with me!

There goes another roll of paper towels and my keyboard.

Shoe just sent a text that all the phone lines are down in his area so he has no computer.

No clue why or when it will be fixed - Sheesh.....

Hilarious! Mug shots! I'm still thinkin' I wish you'd been there the year I went to the Kentucky RU. I missed meeting Sharon that year too. Gee, if the acorns got together we could have a real squirrely time.

Hope your phone line gets stuck back together soon. Probably somebody with a big shovel (backhoe) said "Oops" or something less printable when that happened.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

I'm baaaack! ♫

Sheesh, everyone one in certain parts of NC, Century Link customers, lost internet today. So many people must've called in that by the time I did I got a recording about it and "we're aware of the problem and are working on it".

Meanwhile I couldn't even get ahold of our local linemen (as mentioned in a previous blog entry, "Down time"). Hmm...sounds to me like it was a problem further up the line (no pun intended).

Back in bizness though so all is well. And wouldn't ya know it, this was a day I was gonna work on my website and couldn't do it. "Oh bother..." as Winnie the Pooh is so fond of saying.... :>)

Shoe (feeling sorry for my po' computer who heard plenty of input from me and couldn't offer output to the world!) Smiling

Glad I'm back, too.

Guess I better get my cup and toast this day...I thought for sure my computer finally bit the dust today. I was almost relieved to find out it was the ISP folks' fault! Yay?....
