This morning was another sleep-in. I Look out the window and all I can see is clouds and the sound of wind. Thank goodness we have football today. Nothing doing outside but at least it is warm out of the wind.
Last night the wind was blowing so hard the flag was making a big racket flapping around to the point I could not sleep, so at 10:30, Nick and I were out there lowering the flag to stop the noise so we could sleep. I need to run into Lowes and get the stuff I need to raise and lower it properly.
Yuma and I went out for our morning walk a little after 9. Then we had a full breakfast and waited for the games to begin. As I was waiting, I noticed I could not get on the Internet. Got three bars of 5G but nothing would move 😖 Worked great last night at 1:30 when I woke up. This has been going on for two days now.
Had to use my Jetpack WIFI to log in to Verizon and check out my usage. Sure enough the old Verizon "Internet No Limit Plan" comes to a crawl after 22 gigs of use. Dolly has used 22 gigs and me 28, so we are both over our limits already 😭
Of course Verizon has a solution to my problem. Change my old no limit plan to their new 50 gig per phone plan before it goes to a crawl. Luckily, they make it easy to change plans right online so I bit the bullet and changed both Dolly's plan and my plan to the 50 gig plan. Immediately, we both have blazing 5G Internet speeds so now I can Google all I want. Will have to take out a loan to pay my Verizon bill though 😨
Then it was football time and the Bengals beat the Raiders in the first game and before the second game I fixed New York Strip steaks, scalloped potatoes and French Green beans. Yummy! 😋
Patriots are playing Buffalo and it is now half time. The score is 27-3 and I have the Patriots in our family pool. I hate to say this but the Patriots have the measly 3 points. I think I'm going to have the honor of being the first one out of the pool 😖😭
Didn't take any pictures today so will drop back to our hike the other day in the Cargo Muchacho Mountains.
Guess I'll watch the second half for a little bit before dessert and an early bed.
My favorite team won today! That would be any team playing the Raiders ;) And I'm want Buffalo (Home of the Chicken Wing) to finish off your Pats ... Sorry but I've been to the Anchor Bar, but not New England.ReplyDelete
Glad I don't have to pay your Verizon bill, but glad you'll be here again tomorrow.
True. Happy to have a fast internet again. They sure didn't warn me. Had to figure it out.Delete
That flag is making Nick's life miserable. I hope you can get an easier way to put it up and down. The Patriots aren't doing so well. Maybe they can pull it out,but it doesn't look good. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a nicer day for you boys.ReplyDelete
Yes. We'll have to make it so we can raise and lower the flag properly. Today is beautiful . Lots of sun. 😄Delete
Sounds like you had a similar weather day down there, clouds and wind. Though I do believe you are experiencing warmer temperatures. The one thing we keep talking about is a pole and a flag on the motorhome but we have heard they can get noisy in even a little wind. We will be waiting to see how you solve that issue.ReplyDelete
Yes the flag is noisy. Going to get stuff so I can easily put it up in the morning and take it down in the evening. Too cheap to buy a real flagpole. 😀Delete
It was cold and windy here all day long. A good day for football! Seems the underdogs are winning!! Around here internet signals look good, but the same ... very slow unless you are up early like me!! I know the pain of that internet bill!!ReplyDelete
I see how cold it is now. We're at 50. Looks starting today your weather really improves . Hope Jon made it. It will be taxing on the internet for a couple of weeks.ReplyDelete
It is amazing how the Wind move things outside that can keep us awake at night.ReplyDelete
Glad you are still enjoying the greater outdoors in the southwest.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
Good to hear from you Rick. Loving the warm weather.Delete
I really like it and I hope there is something newReplyDelete
