Monday This and That

We had a nasty little thunderstorm on Friday. Saturday morning we were fine except we started losing some of the cable TV channels. Then we lost the phone service and the internet. David called cable service and they stated that nothing was wrong in our area. He called back after thinking the cable modem went bad so he went to New Braunfels to exchange it. Came back and hooked up the new box and nothing worked. Okay... called cable people on his cell and made an appointment to get them to come out on Sunday to fix the damn thing. Sunday morning we lost TV channels completely where as we were able to watch only a few. So, three trucks came out and fixed the line. It had been fried guess how. Anywho that is the reason I had posted so late for Saturday and Sunday.
Sorry, I'm in a really bad mood right now. I'm in the middle of a bad lupus flare and my RA is killing my hands, wrists, and back. I just want to be left alone. I woke up with my wrists aching so bad. I went to the kitchen to get some Tylenol and I could barely open the cap off the bottle. Thank the Goddess David hadn't left for work yet. I'm not cooking for the next few days. In fact, nothing will be getting done around here for a while until I feel better.
David was fiddling with the phones while he was deleting numbers and figured out the intercom system on Friday. I made it a notion not to show him how to use it because he would abuse it by bothering me. Sure enough, he figured it out and he did nothing but bother me all Sunday afternoon after we got the cable repaired. I wish I had the strength to hit him upside the head with a shovel. I should be so lucky.
I'm going to go make David some lunch, check-in on Spunky, and then go take a nap. I'm hoping to feel better when I wake up.
Y'all stay safe and healthy and have a magical day.

Saturday's Science Lesson

After being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19, it can take as few as two and as many as 14 days for symptoms to develop. Cases range from mild to critical. The average timeline from the first symptom to recovery is about 17 days, but some cases are fatal. Here's what it looks like to develop COVID-19, day by day.

The Driving Dogs of New Zealand

This is the full video not just the gif of Porter the dog driving a real Mini that was specially modified for him to drive at a slow enough speed in case of a problem. He did quite well and no there was no one in the car with him. This video was made back in 2012 and posted in December of that year on Youtube. They are in New Zealand and the team took three dogs that were at the SPCA and trained them to drive a modified Mini. I guess it was an experiment to prove dogs CAN drive if you let them but I wouldn't recommend that you do it so please don't. To see the videos about Porter, Ginny, and Monty learning to drive you can go to or learn more about their driving here or here
