Back at the Lodge

Well, I'm back at the Lodge tonight posting again, so you can tell we did not have much success in finding a booster for the air card. We went into Cleveland and looked at the Ace Hardware store (which we were told had booster's), at the Radio Shack, at the Verizon Wireless store, and the Auto Zone (where the person at Verizon sent us - go figure!). Anyway, no one had the booster - so, my next trick is going to look on line at the Verizon web site. Maybe, just maybe, they will have something. I don't know. I wanted to come to the Lodge tonight anyway to watch the final episode of The Bachelor (okay, I know that it's just stupid, but I happen to like it - so sue me!). I'm pretty sure that I know he is NOT going to pick the one I like, but I just have to see for myself. Then I think it's next Monday, Jason and Molly (last year's Bachelor - you know, the one that jilted Melissa and went back with the girl he had sent home of the final two - I'm sure you all know the story) are getting married. He is the first of the Bachelors to marry someone. I don't think I will come up for that one - but it is something.

Speaking of TV - when I got home yesterday afternoon after blogging up here at the Lodge - Dan had a little surprise for me - TV. We only get one network channel (NBC) and then we get a weather station and a sports station - which, by the way, are all NBC channels. I wish it were ABC instead of NBC, but we do have a TV station so, Dan is happy. Actually the picture is excellent - can't believe how good it is and it is coming off our little TV antenna that is on top of the unit. Go figure!

Today we started training - or I should say - I began training in the store. Dan did rounds with Don again. The lady that is training me was about 45 minutes late getting down to the store - I was really ready to just go home - in fact, Dan went up here to the Lodge to see if there was a problem. Anyway, they were having a meeting about the upcoming snow coming in. Yes, they are still calling for snow up here - in fact, we are under a winter storm warning until midnight tomorrow. The weathermen are calling for 1 to 4 inches here in the North Georgia mountains. IF we do get that kind of snow, or if the roads are icy we are not suppose to go to work - we'll just have to wait and see what mother nature throws at us. I'll certainly let you know as soon as I can - just know that IF I don't post tomorrow it means I can't get up here to the Lodge.

I really don't have much else to report - I'll keep you updated on the air card situation - in the meantime, I'll just have to come up to the Lodge and post (and "farm"). Oh, I almost forgot, while we were in town at the hardware store we found HEATERS!!!!! Yeah!!!!!! So, we bought a new one for the bedroom - I'm sure that we are going to need it in the next couple of days! Which brings me to my standard line that I hope all of you stay warm and drive safe if the weather is crazy where you are, and ------------------

I'll talk to you tomorrow (hopefully!)



    Carol, here is the website for the Wilson cell phone booster that our friends use. Re the Bachelor, "don't you hate when men think with that thing between their legs?" BIG MISTAKE, JAKE!

  2. Thanks so much Donna! I will see what we can do - right now I"m at home - lets see if this goes through (it's snowing here!)

    Re Jake - he sooooo screwed up! It will NEVER last! But, I am so excited that Ali will be the next Bachelorette! I just love her!!!!

  3. Carol,
    Try this web site for all you need in antennas for wireless phones. You most likely WILL NOT find any locally.
    ALTERNATIVEWIRELESS.COM I'm sure you know our son and his family live down in Gainesville, GA and they are getting lots of snow as we speak-so I know that you must be getting it also. They called off school today.

  4. A big 10-4 on Ali being the next Bachelorette. It's funny she had to leave for work but now has time to do it again! I think she saw the writing on the wall and didn't want to end up in second place. I'm sure there was negotiating going on in the background and they wrote in a lot for the drama. She was my favorite from the beginning. I hope she meets someone great next season. Now Jake is going on dancing with the stars. He probably needs more money to buy Vienna new cars when she wrecks the hers again. Dallas has a lot more traffic than Geneva, FL.


Rainy, Dreary Days

Well, I don't know what the weather has been like where you live but here it has been warm, overcast, and rainy.  We are having temperat...
