Monday Meanderings.

Was up at 04:30AM had coffee with my bride, then she was off to the truck company.

Before I go any further after no internet for three days I want to welcome my 140th & 141th followers, the first is JACKIE she has a blog so click on her name and take a look., then there is SHERRY & CHARLEY click on their name to see their blog, I hope you all enjoy the antics at the Weeb ranch and when we are traveling.

I was out the door a 09:00AM and went to the Centurylink Store In St Peters MO. to pick up the new router that the tech said I needed. Got home and after following the directions, it would not work so after an hour on the Tech support line, he decided it was in the DSl line and he would send a Technician on Tuesday. I noticed after lunch our phones were dead, Then about 03:30PM I got a call on my cell and the tech said to go down and try the internet, it worked and he walked me though setting up the wi-fi which is built in with this router. It seems to be faster and the signal upstairs is stronger than the Belkin wi-fi I had before.

So after period of three days we are back in the blog business.

Boy it sure will take a while to catch up on what was going on for the weekend. But I will read some tonight and some early in the morning when I get up.Had a ton of e-mails to catch up on also.

Hope everyone is having a fine day, be safe out there. Sam & Donna..


  1. Donna said you were beside yourself without the internet! :) Welcome back.

  2. It's a weird feeling to be cut off from your regular connections.

    Missed you and glad you are back with full power.


  3. Glad you and Donna survived the storms in your state!

    What a weird weather year.

    Cindy and Walker

  4. yeahhh your back online :) nice to have you back...

  5. kinda like missing your right arm.....

  6. Funny how dependent we are on technology that is really fairly new, in the great timetable of life. But I know what you mean...I hate to be without my internet. Welcome back.

  7. Yep, as soon as that Internet connection is lost it means a big dose of separation anxiety alright. I'm surprised clinics haven't sprung up around the country to help folks through the troubled times.....

  8. Glad you got the new router setup. Sounds like the problem was in their line all along but a new, faster router and modem never hurts.

  9. Good to hear that your up and running again. We missed your posts.

  10. Al...somebody will read your comment and write a book and make millions..."How to Survive w/o the Internet , how to eliminate the anxiety of this tragedy"
