Last night I heard a noise. The big cable box Cox Cable hooked up to my living room TV had fallen off the fireplace. When it fell off, all the attachments fell out so I couldn’t figure out which one went where.
I haven’t had the TV on all weekend. At night I only watch British streaming TV in my bedroom.
I basically got cable so I could watch one darned news channel. But if this thing is going to keep messing up I’m getting rid of it.
When the guy installed it a few weeks ago it was only working off and on for him. It would work for a few minutes and then go out.
I can’t turn the TV off because then I can’t get it to come back on. The whole system seems messed up.
I’ve tried watching live streaming and live audio of this one TV show on my laptop, but it goes out often and you miss things. And I’ve tried the paid versions and they go out too.
I tried Sling but it wasn’t working all the time either.
Quirky Cable Problems:
So this morning I told the woman on the phone at Cox Cable to make a note. I want whoever comes on Thursday to check this thing out to wear a mask and social distance. Unlike the last guy last time who couldn’t remember to do either.
My internet won’t stay on either. Right now it’s probably going out about 30 times per day. They said it’s probably because everyone is working from home.
I pay over $100 a month for internet alone.
Blue & White Morning Glories:
In other news, my blue morning glory is blooming. I thought it would be the bright blue I planted in the past. I adore those bright blue ones.
But I guess they were out of those seeds and so I bought these. The flowers have white streaks running through the flower. They’re still pretty though.
Yesterday I ordered and took lunch over to Kendra who was painting the ceilings at her flip house.
She did say that they got the tree off the roof of her garage after the storm. Someone had asked me about that.
When she went home later yesterday, her two chihuahuas had torn more of her couch pillows apart. They do this if she leaves them alone for more than 2 hours. Guess they miss her.
I imagine now they’ll have to go back in their big steel kennel when she’s gone for more than a few hours.
She just keeps turning the cushions around to hide the stuffing falling out. I imagine soon she will run out of cushions to turn around.
I am lucky. My dogs never tore up the furniture.
Charlie’s Vet Appointment:
I’m taking Charlie in tomorrow for lung x-rays at his primary vet’s office. They want me to drop him off due to Covid. He’s coughing so much and it seems harder for him to get around.
I worry so about my pet babies!
I guess I’d better save and publish this before my internet blinks out again.
Some have emailed me that the ads are still irritating. But I’ve had them cut down the ads by 30%. So I’m sorry if this is still a bother.
