Get Them Phones Fixed!

Over the course of the last couple of weeks, it's been a chore trying to call Katherine. Only once or twice has the call actually gone right through, as normal, the rest of the time it's 15 to 20 minutes of redialing, waiting, and finally getting a connection that makes the voices late, trying to hear over line noise, etc. They said it's affecting all the lines, not just one particular company, so all we can do for now is wait patiently and hope that it will be corrected over the next few days. I suppose it's just one of those things we have to get used to when dealing with another country.

Here on the home front, it's still hot! Oh, the golf balls are still getting plenty of use, and the peppers and tomatoes are looking good, though the grass is getting a little thin in spots. But due to some much needed rain over the weekend, even that is looking a lot better.

Tanner isn't a hot weather boy, he likes it cool, so his main respite in laying on the air conditioning vents during the day to stay cool when it's so hot outside. Still, he's always ready to caddy for me and retrieve those golf balls during my chipping practice. In fact, he gets excited when he sees me pick up a club, so I guess it's one of his favorite games also.

Well, now to go outside in this heat and trim some on the lawn, water the plants, and oh yeah, some short game practice in this heat.....
