I first posted this song back when Daddy was sick, and the original content wasn’t where I am right now. Things are different. And the same, since I’ve been dealing with Mom’s illnesses and recovery this year. (I’m sending out an emphasis on the recovery part just in case the Universe happens to be listening.) Life keeps moving, whether you stop and pay attention or not.
We got the phone thing from a few days ago straightened out today. Turns out the jack had gone bad, so a nice tech from Verizon replaced it, and I’ll have to pay extra since I don’t have the “indoor line maintenance plan” (Way to soak your customers, Verizon!). But the phone works, and I went ahead and got a new phone so we’ll only have one system (one fewer handsets, but that’s cool). Other than that, things are quiet. Not too quiet, since I’ve got a ton of reading to do for school and the holiday is coming up. (Yes, it’s almost time for Arlo Guthrie again.)
But if you happen to spot newer and bluer meanies in your vicinity, remember to go out singing.
