Technical Difficulties

My phone line has been flaking in and out since last night, which has caused interruptions in my DSL service, so if this is the last post you see here for the rest of the weekend, that’s why.

A side effect is that the phone line — all by itself — decided to send in a false 9-1-1 call to the local constabulary. I came home after being out most of the day and found two Palmetto Bay police cars parked in front of my house. It’s nice to see these fine people on the job, but it’s also scary as hell to see two cops cars on your lawn with the neighbors standing around.

They took it all in great stride — apparently this happens on occasion — and I’ve let AT&T know about the problem.

Meanwhile, I’ll catch up on my week’s backlog of crossword puzzles.
