Wow, I have my dad's rotary phone from years and years ago.  When my Dad passed in 2003, I was astounded to find that he was still paying $5 a month rent of the phone and the phone company was actually billing/accepting the rental charge up to 2003.   I was very annoyed with the phone company for that and I let them know it too.  

My Dad's rotary is a cream colour phone.  Cheers to antiquities.

Good morning Anne and all.  I would be disappointed at the rent also.  My dad's had been stored in a backroom for many years

and I asked about it when my sister was living there and taking care of him.  It had stopped working and was replaced.  They gave

it to me and I fixed it with the help of another person.  I get the 4 wire phone service just to use it.  Tried to use it on cable phone

service for years but barely worked.  Now the receiver cord opens intermittently so I need to fix that.  My mom replaced the

standard receiver cord when I was a teen because I pulled it off it's stand many times while talking on it.  Guess I was the first

of us kids that talked on the phone a lot.

Have a great day.

Good morning Kitty, Paul, and all.  41 here yesterday morn, 56 this morn.  Was a sunny low

humidity day here also.  Good because I had to paint my mower deck after welding the wheel

mount on the deck.  Glad I decided to get it done because I looked at the lawn while I was

welding most of a day and could see lines in the grass.  I'm not real good at welding and a

mower deck is sorta thin metal to weld. 

Got the low power board mounted into the Kenwood amp, should get the high power board

in today when the transistors come in.  Think I will have more problems to fix after that.

Have a memorial to go to for my wife's cousin next Sunday.  Lung cancer at 54, not sure if she

smoked or not.  They were in the fracking area and getting money from that.  Lived down in PA

near where my dad's farm is.

Have to put a second coat of paint on the mower deck today, get groceries, and a little work on the

amp.  Then rain on and off for 3 days after that.  Probably get down to the farm Friday to help.

Have a great day all.

Good morning everyone. Nice weather again here, should stick around for a few days.

When I go out in the morning, there are certainly more people commuting to work here then at the start of the year. But I read only abut 20% of office workers have returned.  Terrible for the restaurants and stores that rely upon them. 

Enjoy all,

Paul

Good morning Paul and all.  Our rain starts today.  Looks like Friday will be rain free and a good day

to travel down to the PA farm.  Yesterday was the D Day anniversary.  I didn't know my dad was in it

until a male nurse asked him about it in 2008 at Robert Packard hospital in Sayre, PA.  Was talking

about the camps they stayed in waiting to start.  Said he stayed in D6 or D7. 

Never noticed a change in traffic around here with the virus.  I only knew one person that worked

from home and he was taking care of his mom just about full time.  We are rural sort of though. 

I was a technician so I would have had to continue on same as usual, just about everything was hands on. 

But fortunately I was retired.  Wife was elder care and would've left rather than wear a mask with a face

shield all day.  I wouldn't have done that either.

I did get the second coat of POR15 on the mower deck, got groceries, and did repair on Kenwood

audio amplifier.  The amp still goes into protection mode so will ask the expert how to troubleshoot

that. 

Have to do garbage for us and daughter today.  Talk to her about driving up north  to get the Monte

Carlo SS.  It's about done and my wife can't drive long distance with her cataracts.  We will get those

fixed when she goes on medicare and medicare advantage this Fall.  Right now they want $14k and

don't accept her insurance.  National Health Care was rescued but badly damaged and isn't worth

a whole lot yet.  It's like a place holder for lots of things.

Have a great day all.

My dad, WW2.

Good morning dear Sensational friends ~
I have returned from a fun filled vacation to a place called Cheeka in Islamorado, Florida Keys. Great fun with Bronwen in the pools. A day trip to Hemingway’s home and Key West.  Very hot, high humidity and tropical.  Good to be back in Ohio to breathe the fresh cool air!   Susan
