My internet issues here in AJ are really strange. Ginny, who lives right across the street, has no problems using her Verizon jet pack. Toni and Doug had no problems when they were in our park.
And yet we could only get limited service with our Verizon jet pack. Verizon had no suggestions as to what could be wrong. This happened to us last year and we ended up getting MediaCom cable internet. We don’t have a contract with them so we cancel when we leave and then reinstate it when we get back. They showed up today and made my computer world wonderful again.
The only thing we can think of is the position of where the rig is parked. Even though we can’t see anything that is blocking the signal, something is wrong. We have been told by Verizon that AJ is on the far edge of the closest cell tower and there isn’t anything that can be done at this time.
But all is well and I’m back.
Jim got home last Thursday. He had a fantastic time with his son even if they didn’t see much wildlife. The girls and I were just overjoyed to have him home with us.
Saturday we opened up my sister’s park model and got it ready for her. We also stopped to visit Aunt Happy. She had received a beautiful bouquet from Banner Baywood Hospital.
On Sunday we met up with Dianne and Tom at Garcia’s for dinner. Our friend Carol took this fantastic picture of them.
We had a wonderful visit. I know Jim could have talked fishing with Tom for many more hours but the restaurant was ready for us to leave.
We’ll meet up with them again in Quartzsite.
Monday we picked up my sister from the airport and got her settled in her place in Mesa. Played cribbage Monday night.
Tuesday we got my passport picture taken, got the truck washed, went to Costco and ran some other errands. After all the running around, Jim installed our new backup camera on the truck. I forgot to take any pictures of him crawling around underneath the truck.
Today we waited for MediaCom to show up and then tonight we went up to the clubhouse to see the movie 42 about Jackie Robinson. I wasn’t sure I was going to like the movie, but both Jim and I really enjoyed it.
Sure does feel good to know that my internet is working again.
