There's some symbolism there I don't think I want to go into right now. But after a week with lows in the 40s, and a frost or two, and highs in the 50s and some 60s, we ended up with a glorious high hazy blue sky weekend of 70s to low 80s. It's 11:30 at night and the outside temp is still 70degF and muggy -- warmer in the house and so I put on the A.C. in the bedroom to cool it down and dry it out a bit. Especially as we've switched from the summer quilt to the fall quilt. (grin)
End result -- suddenly we have autumn colors. The yellows, oranges and golds along US-131 on the way home with the low sun, just spectacular. I love fall.
Can't Find the Internet
Twenty-four hours ago I came back upstairs from putting the kitties to bed and when I unlocked the laptop, it wouldn't connect to anywhere. Said it had a connection to the WiFi, etc., just no web. Repaired the connection, rebooted the DSL modem, rebooted the laptop -- nope. Checked a PDA -- nope. Tonight, same thing. Had to reboot the router stack by shutting off the UPS unit in the bedroom, which is why I didn't try it late last night, since the thing screams when you either lose power or turn it off.
This has happened before, and I suppose I can classify it as fixable, but you have to try all these lesser things first, so it wastes time. And I'm too stacked up with a backlog of work to feel happy about wasting time.
But then I realize -- who does? (grin)

Yup. Just another passing fad.
