Tuesday was some day. Around 11:15 AM, the Internet and television went down. After a few calls to the provider, the reason came out: a fiber optics cable was severed. Or was it Wednesday this happened? I tell you, losing connection with the world leaves you, well, unconnected! So, the kitty boys and I made good use of that unconnectedness: We all took lots of cat naps! I’m not sure when the repair was completed, only that when I tried to get on the Internet again yesterday, I couldn’t. More naps! (That’s Dougy napping, above. But you knew that! That’s Dougy’s ottoman under the kitty boy!)
It’s as bad as losing electricity. Nocontact with the outside world is a great time to catch up on rest.
Yes, there is that benefit!
I like it when the “internet” goes down, ’cause the house gets nice and quiet. Purr purr purr.
That’s a fact!
I wonder how your cable got severed?
I haven'[t seen anything in the local media about it, and the cable provider is vague about what happened. There’s lots of road work now because of a highway improvement plan and because of roads washed out when the state was inundated by heavy rains. I suspect one of these construction projects involved digging, and that resulted in the issue.
And so peaceful the lad looks, too! Bless him.
Dougy was totally out of it that day – must have been up all night catting around, he was so sleepy!
Good for him! Haha!
In waiting for the come back of the Internet , the brothers ( and you ) between two naps will be able to read the numerous newspapers around !! 🙂
Those are all read now! (I don’t put them down unless I’ve read them because they end up tore up and largely unreadable one they hit the floor, thanks to the kitties!)
glad you are back
I enjoyed my little break from blogging, but am happy to be back, too!
I know the feeling. It’s terrible, you feel completely lost.
For a short moment, I couldn’t imagine what I’d do till it was up again, but there always are other things to do! You just have to find them and do them!
internet and television out of order is a nuclear meltdown… but at least better than power blackout , so you can watch some dvd’s ;O)
I read and listened to CDs, then took some naps!
Several years ago, the entire town was without electricity for three days because of a major transformer failure. what to do, I wondered. I’ll type some letters, I thought. Then I remembered my typewriter was an electric one! LOL!
