So, the phone, she is ded. A new phone is promised, though what kind and exactly when it will arrive have sorta been left up in the air. I have made a note on the Calendar that Rules All to Call the Verizon store on Tuesday (sigh), if they don’t call me on Monday to provide Solid Information, and, ideally, a pick-up time.
On the Silver Lining front — had things fallen otherwise, this would have happened just as we were getting ready to leap onto a train to Kansas City.
I dropped my broken necklace off at the jewelry store, and talked briefly with the jeweler, who says that, instead of soldering the break, and since there’s such a tiny segment of chain involved, she would remove the broken bit and feed the new end into the clamp end of the clasp. It will either be ready on Monday, or in two weeks, because she was going on vacation, and couldn’t be sure she’d get to it before she left.
Dollar Store only had short spike solar lights in stock. On the plus side, they cost just $1 apiece.
Kmart stocked solar lights which were more like what I’d had in mind — but they want $25 for one, single light, so that’s a non-starter. Research continues.
We lost power last night, in solidarity with downtown (so to speak) Winslow, Benton, and a couple other towns I don’t recall right now — at about 9:00 pm. The generator performed its function, and we here at the Cat Farm continued about our business, basically unimpeded. Thanks to everyone who helped us make the generator a reality!
As of this morning, Alliance of Equals has received 169 reader reviews at Amazon! Only 31 more until we reach our 200-reviews goal! You guys rock!
Also, by way of a Watch the Skies: Yesterday, we signed a contract with an ebook distributor, in order to widen the reach of Pinbeam Books. We’ll let you know when the books are available from the new distributor.
And that? Is all I’ve got. Today has got to be a work day, given the hours lost to the Dying of the Phone, so I’ll be shutting the internet down, directly I publish this blog entry.
Everybody stay cool.
