Saturday Situation Report

We’re in Virginia once again. Five-year-old grandson Bennett had so much fun participating in a triathlon in July, he wanted to do it again. So our daughter found another one for him on August 19 (tomorrow). She also talked his seven-year-old sister, Avery, into entering it with him. So that’s the occasion for our visit this weekend: to watch Bennett and Avery swim, run, and bike their way to a fun time.

Also noteworthy: we’ve said goodbye to Verizon Mi-Fi as our Internet provider. It’s about time, right? It was a little strange that we were satisfied with it for over a year, and then all of a sudden it became unusable. But, because they tried everything they could and were unable to provide dependable service for us, they let us out of the remainder of our two-year contract with no penalty.

As of Wednesday, we’re customers of Omnicity, which I believe is a new organization devoted to giving broadband access to us yokels in third-world counties who are out of range of DSL or cable. For now, this new service looks good. But being weary of things that don’t work, I’m not particularly excited at the prospects. Ask me about it in a year.

Writing? I’ve been busy with this and that and the other thing, but haven’t found the time to do the main thing, i.e., my WIP. Hanging my head in shame…

Heading home for Ohio on Monday. Hoping to find the time to share my musings that day too. If I don’t get to it, you’ll never notice. I’m sure you don’t rush to your Inbox every Monday, Thursday and Saturday to see what wise words Y’s posted.

Have a great weekend! I plan to do the same.
