Back On The Map

Here is an exert from a letter to my sister. She was wondering if we had fallen off the face of the map :

Well , I guess I should have had a V8 huh ? Ok , so , today, after MUCH , and I do mean MUCH , To-ing and Fro-ing by Moe and I to the local phone office, and after they gave us our own service phone number ( LOL , I think they were secretly afraid we would pitch a tent in the phone company lobby ) to call them and report that the phone STILL didn't work , we got it fixed! Can I hear a YEAH ?I am still in shock .

It got so that when Moe would call them to tell them the phone was still out , they recognized his voice and didn't even bother to ask him his name , lol .Whatever , I am just glade the thing works !!!! And the internet is working too ! ALL AT THE SAME TIME ! Now how convenient ( BTW ... is it just me or do you think that word is spelled weird too ?) is that ? SSSSOOOOOO ... here I am , live and in person ! We are doing well here , aside from a hiatus from all modern modes of communications .Hope the rest of you are all doing well too.

We had some rain here last week and looks as if more might be on it's way to us here in Tripoli. It all started on Groundhog Day night , Feb.2 . Rained almost non stop for 5 unheard of days.You can imagine the flooding in a dessert city .Although , I have to say , for the most part , the water has drained away pretty fast in most places. Then you have the other places where it is still a inland sea ,lol . Thank goodness for the new paved roads. At least on the paved roads , you know what is underneath the water .And the public works department has done a very good job of trying to keep the drains in the roads that have them , clear and functioning .Hats off to those gays !
