I am back in the city and about to turn in a bit early. I got a lot done today.
This morning the electrician came by Mom's house and helped me fix a couple of lingering issues with wiring in the home. Very happy to report that he had no problem doing what had to be done. That's a yay in the plus column.
Not long after lunch, the handyman came by. Together, we tarred part of Mom's roof to prevent any further leaks. There was a very tiny hold around the chimney. A bunch of tar slathered like peanut butter around the chimney, and it should be as good as new. Another yay in the plus column.
I returned to the city mid-afternoon. I decided to drop by the radio station to pick up the phone I had won on Friday.
It is a Motorola Flipout smartphone. It is square, but you flip it to reveal a full qwerty keyboard. Once charged and hooked up to a data plan of some kind, I can surf the web with it, update this blog, maybe even make phone calls. Patricia already covets it.
I returned to my house around 4pm. Newbie was glad to return here, and especially glad to see Cindy again, and even more elated to eat something.
I got a lot done today. An annoyance with respect to wiring was fixed. The roof was tarred on my mother's roof. And I got this cool lookin' cell phone. It was a vacation day, but hardly a vacation. But at least it ends well.
See you tomorrow.
