Woke up this morning...

found the pups asleep...
stepped out onto the back deck - maybe it was the sleet...

icy. icy back deck. wow...

Boo's in Kansas - having a great time with Chris and Dave! yay!
seemed to make good time - left Denver a bit late, was concerned with the snow/foggy weather to be driving. Talked to her as she passed the Denver airport.
Talked to her again as she entered Kit karson County, and finally, as she was looking for mile markers - 7 miles out side of Emporia - yay

rang her when I got back from the surprise party for Kym (of the Dickens) - she sounded tired, but happy to not be moving. Having hung out with the Kansas Krew, I know she's having a great time.

An Ode to MASTECH Advanced Tech. Installer #6985...

"You're two hours early - you're supposed to be here at 1"
"What's that got to do with anything? You want your DirecTV or not?"


So, will Ken at MASTECH find an alternate installer? Will Scott and Boo forgo their DTV addiction because the local service provider for DirecTV has no idea how to help their installers make their customers happy?

What if I hadn't been napping, when Blue started barking? What if I were at opening day for the Farmer's Market instead? Would #6985 (by the way dude, if you know my name, you could at least share yours...) have come back between 1 and 5? Did #6985 know I was gonna have him do a great job of installing, with the extra $$ that means?

Well, #6985, we'll see what magic Ken can do, then it's a note to the CEO of DirecTV with regards to your poor job performance. Hey - it worked with Staples, and I'm a customer of theirs still.

So, the world turns, I wait... but really, not for long.

MasTec - I'm briefly impressed...

Brian just rang - gonna swing by his place and pick up a triple LNB so our Tivo's will work right - sadly, I think someone's going under the house - spoke of two wires to each box. Ugh... but hey - surpassed my expectations.

Take that installer #6985!!!
