It seems like forever since I've had a good phone and Rocky destroyed it. Good thing I don't make or receive many calls, and I really don't like using a phone because I have trouble hearing on cell phones.
This afternoon Steve is going to finally take me to AT&T to select a phone. He was away on a business trip, and before that his family all had colds that were bad enough to keep them home. So this afternoon I hope we make it to get a phone. I shudder to think of crating Rocky because he absolutely freaks out about it. He can't be trusted for 5 minutes if I'm occupied with something else, such as taking a shower. I have nearly everything up high where he can't reach it, but he's getting taller and taller, and there are just some things that I overlook now and then, such as my jacket.
I had a great time with family this past weekend, especially with 2 brothers & their wives, and my niece and her husband, all of whom I don't see very often. My niece (Julie) and husband (John) wanted to go to Reno, and Friday/Saturday seemed to be clear enough and I-80 open all the way "up the hill". She told me later that seeing the snow piled so high on one side of the road, and the absolute drop off into the canyons on the other side really had her nervous. They came back to Sacramento $200 richer than when they left, so all went well!
My mother used to go to the Reno and Lake Tahoe casinos whenever she could get someone to take her, or a bus trip for seniors for that purpose. I detest gambling and never did enjoy the atmosphere; the last time I went I put a few quarters in a slot machine and got about $250 back - I vowed then and there to never ever gamble again, and I never have!
We are on a 4-day streak of rain, and I don't think it has stopped since yesterday. It makes taking Rocky out a real bummer, as I don't like to walk the rain and all we have is a covered driveway. I don't mind at all looking out the window at the rain, but I don't care for being out in it. Maybe I should get myself an umbrella but wouldn't have much chance to use one since the rainy season here is so short. I hate spending money on phones, umbrellas, and crap like that! I'd much rather spend it on and with my kids and grandkids!
I wonder how long it will take me to be able to use my new phone, whatever kind I get! I will have to enter all the names & numbers into the directory, and I lost so many of them when the phone was ruined by "The Destroyer".
