When I last left you on October 8th, the plumber was coming back the next day to fix the last (we hoped) cut on our sewer lines.
He did. By Tuesday night we had water and everything drained. We could take baths, do laundry and flush toilets.
What we could not do was talk on the house phone or use the internet.
It seems that the telephone line had been cut. Sigh.
AND - there had been some major fiber cuts - whole towns around here were without phone or internet service so our little problem got shoved to the back of the repair tickets. Whenever we called, the voicemail said a repair ticket was already scheduled and we would hear within 24 hours.
By Friday, however, we were getting impatient. Luckily the telephone office in town used to be next to my beauty parlor so I knew who to call locally. Hope finally got someone out here who said that they'd never gotten a repair ticket. It took her about 45 minutes to locate the problem and fix it.
What this all means is that last week we could neither get nor ship orders.
In the midst of all of this, Friday Spike went lame - both back legs - and I had to take him to the vet. He's on meds now, feeling better - but he and Yoda can't run and tear around when Yoda visits. They have to remain quiet and sedate - which means inside, believe me.
Today, things seem to be calming down.
The Flood seems to be over.
This is Gabriels Ark. It seemed like a good kit to put on special this week while we mop up. If you ordered from the site last week, we're working on it. :)
Have a good week ladies.
