Exciting stuff - well, not THAT exciting...

I actually have something to blog about!  I don't know what to do with myself.  How does this work?  I guess I'll just plunge in somewhere and hope it makes sense.  We got a new internet service.  This one is talking about speeds in megabytes rather then kilobytes so that is a good thing.  The two guys who installed our new antenna were just on a whole different planet from me when it comes to heights.  They were zooming up that ladder like they were walking down the street.  It made my hands sweat just to watch them.  Here's one of the guys programming the receiver.
Just another day at the office for him. 

I did something that put my back out.  I've no idea what it is but while sitting doesn't hurt getting into a chair or out of it sure does.  Go buy some stock in ibuprofen because use is skyrocketing.  To manage my computer addiction during this time I've installed a new desk.
Yep, I'm in the closet.  I know all those celebrities are coming out of the closet, I just had to be different.  I can't stand here for long periods of time but for ten minutes at a shot it works really well.  The view sucks but.....  (Comments about the crap stored in the closet will not be accepted unless they are accompanied by a photo of your own neat and tidy closet!)

Anyway, aside from all that excitement, things are pretty normal.  We are having some nice 60's (17C) high temps and not too much wind so being outside is nice.  We are doing our walk mid-day rather than at 06:00 as we do in the summer.  We walk around the neighborhood and check out what the neighbors have done with their yards and houses.  We figure we have some very strange neighbors!  I'll talk about them another time.  Right now it's getting time to go find another position.  Standing in my closet is getting painful.

Have a good one!

Ouch! Thanks for the reminder. I have not had back problems for a couple of years now, maybe more. It used to be at least once a year. sometimes twice when I worked.

I hope that Internet works out, What is it?

Stuck in a closet? Get a laptop and sit in the hot tub while browsing (just don't drop it in the water)
