After days of feeling terrible, I think we are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel (and we’re hoping that it’s not an oncoming train). I haven’t asked Miss Terry to please shoot me and put me out of my misery in almost 24 hours, so that’s a sign of improvement. We appreciate everybody’s e-mails wishing us well and for a speedy recovery.

Yesterday we felt good enough that we went out to mail off some orders that had come in, and stopped at WalMart to pick up a few things. While Terry was doing her shopping, I walked across the parking lot to a Verizon store to look at a Blackberry Storm, since I’m due for a free phone upgrade. Once again I was reminded that there are a lot of people out there who are just dumber than a rock.

A woman was complaining that she and her husband’s cell phones were not working, and after checking her account, the young man behind the counter explained to her that the phones had been disconnected because their bill had not been paid. She replied, “That’s impossible, my sister’s phone still works!”

The clerk checked her account again and told her that the only phones on the account were the two used by her and her husband, and her sister’s phone was not on their account, which was why it was not disconnected.

“Bulls&%#,” the woman replied, “We live with her. How can two phones in the house not work and hers still does? That’s just not fair!”

Finally the woman gave up and let her husband have a shot at solving the problem. And I’ll be darned if he didn’t ask the same questions, and also insisted that it was impossible for two cell phones to be disconnected, and yet another phone owned by someone at the same address worked!

I had to leave about then, because Bad Nick was just aching to make a comment or two, and Miss Terry says I have to keep him on a leash when I’m out in public. The thing that scared me was, these two idiots were young enough to procreate! Folks, we really need to thin the herd.

If you are a veteran and are coming to our Gypsy Gathering rally in Celina, Ohio, we are going to have an excellent seminar on the Veterans Affairs medical care system, presented by Nancy Hazelton, who was my primary care provider with the V.A. before retiring and taking up the gypsy lifestyle.

Ben Miller from Coyote Sales is also planning to come to the rally and present a seminar on accessing the internet with cell phones and air cards, and he and wife Gay will be vending Wilson antennas, amplifiers, and other accessories to make getting online easier. If you haven’t registered for the rally yet, you can click the link below to do so. We look forward to seeing you there!

Thought For The Day – If what we are doing is not good for all of us, it is not good for any of us.

  1. I have an embarrassing cell phone story from the early days before Id ever used a cell phone. I was visiting my daughter and she lent me her cell phone when I was roaming around NYC while she was at work. I went to call her and couldn’t get a dial tone. I tried all different ways, but no dial tone so used a pay phone. When I explained that I couldn’t get a dial tone so couldn’t use her cell phone, she moaned, “M-o-o-o-m, cell phones don’t have dial tones!” The tone of her voice was, “How could my mom be so uninformed!!” Anyway, we’ve had a good laugh over that ever since.
