Plan - ???

Thank goodness for Blogger’s “Schedule” feature -

‘Cuz I get cranky when I can’t post - ;))

And -

The other day -

When the power went OUT -

This was the view from my porch -

And this -

And across the street was this -

They had to replace the transformer -

And - to do that -

They had to turn the power OFF - ;((

Heaven forbid they tell us -


That they were going to do that -

So that we could PLAN for the outage -

Oh - I forgot -

PLAN is another four-letter word -

Just like MATH - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. LOL, that almost sounds like a BOB post---or maybe BOB expanded on that! What would it have hurt to give the neighborhood a heads up?? Let you decide if you had things that needed done prior, leave if you can't stand the a/c or fan not working, etc.

    I hate it more when it zaps out quite unexpectedly without any wind, rain, storms in sight. My sewing machine hates that and so does the computer. GRRRR and then Alabama Power says that they are on 99 and some tenths percent of the time.

    Our neighbor was getting their house re-wired today so the electric company has been there all day and the Power Co. dude was in the drive too when I came home. That old house apparently was a fire waiting to happen.

    1. BOB doesn't dare do the rant - she is still upset. It DID zap out unexpectedly - my computer doesn't like that at all!! When we called them - on our cell phone because the house land line didn't work - they said that the power was out because of "equipment failure". Well yeah - if you're replacing the transformer - it's not going to work until you get the new one installed! They also said that it was faster to just do it than to take the time to notify the residents in the neighborhood. Apparently it's too much trouble to give us a heads up. It took them about six hours to replace the transformer - Hazmat team and everything. If we had known - we would have gone to Walmart - and then out to dinner - ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
