Don’t worry — it’s not a person!
When we bought our last house, 13 years ago, we had masonry walls between my office and my studio. I could not get a wifi signal into the studio to save my life. I solved my dilemna by buying two Apple Time Machines and moving my WiFi signal over to the studio in short steps. Those two Time Machines were essentially servers and lasted all this time. No matter what you say about Apple products — they do work, and work well, and work well for a long time.
And now one suddenly quit altogether; and the other is wonky — I mean really wonky. So, I’ll be replacing two drives with one, and backing up stuff for a few days until I get back to my safe-and-secure comfortzone!
Among the things flitting through my brain on Friday were how many Dairy Queen stores there are in Texas. We have 4 within 15 miles and if I extend the circle a little the number doubles because that count doesn’t include San Benito or Harlingen. In my truck driving days I would stop every day for an ice cream; I enjoy my dairy products.
I’m becoming a little aware of changes in people. A couple of the sites where we knew the residents from two years ago are no longer being occupied by the same folks. We need to begin checking on the well-being of some of the folks who won a place in our hearts last time; we’re hoping that the reasons they aren’t here are minor — but as you age it’s obvious that people pass on, or become infirmed, or simply give up heading south for the winter.
The new owners brought in 4 new park model RV’s on spec. I see that half of them are sold now and there’s a regular trickle of lookers stopping for a tour of the remaining two. A couple used units are available — none of which are appealing to us at all. — which sentence I wrote a few days ago… pausing at this point in the writing of this post.
Well, add a few days and it turns out we’ve been talking between ourselves and the topic of finding a Southern seasonal home base has been raised by “She who must be obeyed.” So, we’re going to have a look at one of the units for sale here, and another for sale in a park 40 miles away and see how we feel then. I’m thinking that we’re just feeling our way around a big decision and we might either do nothing for months or make a move in 24 hours. You just can’t tell about us. That’s Life Unscripted……
Thanks for stopping and I’ll be here again tomorrow to chat.
