I was all set to do a Scattered Saturday Post, but I guess I was too scatterbrained to actually do it on Saturday. My bad.
It was not a super good day for me. I started out having problems with my cable. Instead of going on a run, I got some exercise by attempting to shovel my driveway. In this I was helped by an anonymous neighbor who snowblew the end, a path to the front steps, and the walk in front of the house. So that was a very nice thing.
The cable problem wasn’t complete frustration, either. They were actually able to send a tech on a Saturday morning, he showed up when they said he was, and he was very nice and helpful. I only have trouble feeling grateful for it now, though, because I got up this morning to the same damn problem! It must be operator error, because the guy gave me a new cable box and replaced some outside wire. I talked to a guy on the phone this morning who concluded that an inside wire is to blame. He is sending me a replacement, but I can also drive to New Hartford, NY, and pick one up for free. That way I will not have to wait and will have a spare in case it happens again.
I Don’t Know About My Saturday, But This Post Is Certainly Scattered.
I just typed that into the title bar then realized it was far too long for a title. Under the heading Waste Not Want Not, I copied and pasted it here. Now I am too lazy to change the capital letters to lowercase (but apparently not too lazy to spell out “capital letters” when the rest of the world just says “caps”).
Anyways, the rest of my Saturday was spent with my friend, Kim. She met me at the End Zone Pub, where I had gone after I walked my post cards to the post office (that makes it sound like the post cards walked too, like they were my pets that needed exersise). We enjoyed a libation, and I took a picture, since I had it in mind to do a Scattered Saturday Post.
Next Kim took me to my house to pick up an afghan to donate to the HALO Chinese Auction, which was being set up at the Mohawk American Legion. We stopped on the way to the Legion at Mohawk Antiques Mall to pick up a copy of Mohawk Valley Living magazine.
Local readers, if you see this in time, I encourage you to go to the auction. It is today, Sunday, March 5, 2023.
