For help on how to follow a comic title,
Will be 48 years this Wednesday and my bride still knows there better be a dead animal on the table.
…and they were married several years ago.
Charlie is right, copyright reads 2018. Like Arlo, most of us have an idea of where everything is supposed to be, but usually find whatever it is where it’s not supposed to be.
I’m sure I’m not alone. The whole idea of being able to record your own video tapes was just amazing. The idea of getting six hours worth on one cassette was futuristic. Still have a couple hundred not touched in twenty years.
All seriousness aside, we waited an awful long time, and JJ went an awful long way to serve up that pun.
My bride has been hobbled. My fault, we had a lot of large babies. Her treatment has been interrupted by this shutdown so she never gets out anymore. She and a neighbor could hit half a dozen stores at a clip. Now I’m the only shopper. One daughter said I was her hunter gatherer, which pretty much sums things up today.
Same in all respects in Chicago. When l used the automated system to request the reconnect there was a delay because the computer said not enough time elapsed to complete the repairs. Had to get a human to override it.
JJ’s been peeking again. This was us last month except she heard something thump on the back porch. I dutifully performed the mandated inspection and of course found nothing amiss. The next morning however she-who-must-be-obeyed explained it to me. The unusually heavy snow that night pulled our electric line away from the moorings next to the back porch. Everything was still connected and thankfully the connections were a good foot and a half off the ground. Having good neighbors is a blessing. One is a city electrician, who had a friend who had a nephew who was at the house in three hours, and three more hours saw everything disconnected, repaired, and reconnected.
I’m sure I’m not the only retiree gracing these comments, but I realized so many years of retirement has been so many years of training just for this. When it came time to stock up we were pretty well already set, so I laid in a two month supply of our weakness – Hostess Suzy Qs, and then found a couple more. We treat ourselves to a frozen one each evening.
I have a Hand Sanitizer ad following me down the comments.
