Weather: Beautiful day Today
Trail Conditions: Expect dust as trails dry out
Still on my Charter cable problems. I bought two cable boxes so I could cut down my bill by not paying rent on the boxes. Holy crap, what a pain in the ass. I couldn’t tell you how many hours I have spent on the phone at this point. Plus the extra 3 &1/2 hours waiting for a tech to arrive at the bar, plus 2 &1/2 more hours with the techs at the bar, and still no picture on the TV. All of this to pay $300 a month for a damn cable bill for the bar. But it does include phone and Internet LOL. Wish me luck, I have to call them back today.
Speaking of Internet, the Camera I had on the Lake at my buddy Mike’s Place is now down. Mike shut his internet off because of his cable bill so I am losing that picture on the web site. The Walleye Lodge’s camera is down, I’ll send them an email to let them know.
It was the mailman’s last day on the job after 35 years of carrying the mail through all kinds of weather to the same neighborhood. When he arrived at the first house on his route he was greeted by the whole family there, who congratulated him and sent him on his way with a big gift certificate envelope. At the second house they presented him with a box of fine imported cigars. The folks at the third house handed him a selection of terrific fishing lures. At each of the houses along his route, he was met with congratulations, farewells, cards, and gifts of all types and values. At the final house he was met at the door by a strikingly beautiful young blonde in a revealing negligee. She took him by the hand, gently led him through the door (which she closed behind him), and led him up the stairs to the bedroom where they had a most passionate liaison. Afterwards, they went downstairs, where she fixed him a giant breakfast: eggs, potatoes, ham, sausage, blueberry waffles, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. When he was truly satisfied she poured him a cup of steaming coffee. As she was pouring, he noticed a dollar bill sticking out from under the cup’s bottom edge. “All this was just too wonderful for words,” he said, “…..but what’s the dollar for?” “Well,” she said, “Last night, I told my husband that today would be your last day and that we should do something special for you. I asked him what to give you?” He said, “…Scr*w him…give him a dollar.” The blonde then blushed and said, “….But the breakfast was my idea.”
