Three Day Weekend
This being the fourth of July I didn’t work today and was free to sleep in. Dad went to get another cable modem this morning, but my precious wireless router was not working properly. Some investigation revealed that the WAN/Internet port wasn’t working, but everything else was fine. I found this to be rather odd as computer hardware failures are all-or-nothing affairs. Since I happened to have another duplicate, still shrink-wrapped router on hand from a previous “interruption of service,” it was no large tragedy and all was well with the World in short order. To give the holiday some sort of recognition, Dad barbequed for dinner. Grandma Laughlin came over for the evening. Jeff was out for the evening, leaving more food for the rest of us, all of which was quite good. I wanted to stay up late this evening and watch a movie but nothing was worth watching.
