Living in Florida, everything outdoors takes a lot of abuse from the sun and the elements. At our house, that includes the unprotected cable connection on the exposed south side of the house. When it corrodes, our internet connection dies. We’re in the process of getting this repaired now.
The first step of the repair, after the HBO words, is having a repairman come into the house to tell the head peep that she was right when she told the technician on the phone that it was the connection outside the house. The repairman then says that he has to set up another appointment for a different person to fix that.
Newton helped… with a clear path to the closet behind him, in case he needed an escape route.
Ashton: I had important things to do in the closet, so I wasn’t available to help.
Pierre: I had a prior engagement that didn’t include strangers.
Ashton: Don’t let Pierre fool you. He was in the closet, too.
Things should be back to normal around here in another day or two, and Safety Thursday posts will resume on schedule next week. Thanks for your patience with us not being able to visit as much as we’d like in the meantime, and with the cable guy, who didn’t really like cats.
Newton: Maybe we should have put *him* in the closet!
