We're still without a gate, so this paycheck won't be
as healthy as last one's :-(
In the meantime we've been hanging out,
and taking drives around the area.
George calls Verizon and Direct TV once in awhile,
to find out what they can do for us :-)
We're still good with Verizon,
and keep adding data to our plan
with a minimum of dollars.
We currently have 18gb,
since we have no 'free' wifi here.
When we drive into Duncan we take advantage
of any free wifi at restaurants, Walmart, etc.,
to update our phones.
We've even taken our computers to Subway,
which has excellent wifi to update them.
Yesterday Direct TV came out and upgraded our older receivers.
George had called them a month ago to find out if we were eligible,
but they said, nope.
Funny thing was we got an email saying we were.
He called again, got another person, and got the same answer.
Wednesday he called again and magically we were eligible.
Pays to be persistent :-)
Two guys came yesterday and 'installed' the Genie in the living room,
and the Genie Mini in the bedroom.
Well, basically he plugged them in and set them up.
We did pay a $49 installation fee, geez.
The downside was we gave up our old receiver
which had over 25 movies saved from free HBO weekends.
There is no way to save them!
(Trust me, we asked, we googled, and nothing)
We could have kept the old receiver,
but decided having all new equipment was a better option.
Although Wes & Mary Lou had gone north for a gate,
they came down after their's closed
to have dinner with Lori, John, George and me.
So last night, we all went to the only good restaurant nearby :-)
They are going on a cruise to celebrate their 50th anniversary,
while the rest of us hold down the fort so-to-speak.
We're all keeping our fingers crossed for some action soon!
