Tuesday and A Good Night's Sleep

I slept well again last night and have dressed, had my breakfast and coffee and even fed the cats. Poor critters! They are so cold and hungry. I can't do anything about the cold but I can help the "hungry".

I need to remember to set my trash out to be emptied. Sometimes I forget the day and they won't come back by if I forget.

More later....

o.k. I got that done. Trash container is out there.I will now have to remember to go vote. I am not sure when the polls open. I will just go mid morning to be sure.

I need to clean and vacuum today too. I will be going back over to Coffeyville on Thursday to meet Bill Wade. Thursday's my usual cleaning day. But he is going to take me to lunch and repay me for my expense on sending out those 61 packets of information to my classmates. He is one of the forces in back of the Coffeyville reawakening movement. I spent a little over $100.00 doing that. I have kept all my receipts like he told me to.

In the morning I will pick up Bob for breakfast. Wednesday is always a full day for me. I get my hair done at 9:30AM, get gas at Woodshed and take that library book back to the library at Coffeyville. Then there is Bunco in the afternoon at 1:00PM. I will take a container of those cookies I made yesterday. I have set it out on the kitchen counter.

The Atmos Energy bill was paid on the 1st and was not due until the 4th. I had an e-mail from my bank's payment center, "customer care" saying they did not pay it because it would have been late. I checked my bank account and it had been paid on the1st just as I had scheduled it. I even called Atmos Energy and they showed it had been paid on the 1st too and they said my bill had never been late. I e-mailed back to the bank and also on their bank site online that information. The bank had made a mistake.  Don't tell me banks don't make mistakes. Then I got another e-mail from "customer care" just now that asked me if I wanted to pay Atmos Energy. The left hand doesn't seem to know what the right hand is doing at my bank. That bill was paid on the 1st.

I went out to Cornerstone Church and voted a little bit ago. Norma Scott was working there in the voting area. She and Danny live right across the street from that church.

I checked and I have the service again at church on December 1st, the day before my 84th birthday.  The theme that Sunday is "Wait in Hope". That may be a challenge.  :)

More later...

I worked all afternoon on the December 1st service and bulletin and have it pretty well roughed out.

Then I watched the CBS news in the evening and then took my bath and got ready for bed. I watched a couple of episodes of "Murder She Wrote" and then went on to bed at 9:00PM.

We paid a bill on the first for our newspaper. Yesterday we got another bill for the same time period - nothing about our payment being late. Just another bill. Today I started calling at 7:00 and the recording says they are not open. The bill says they are there from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

When I finally got someone around 11:30, she explained that the paper has been purchased and they are still having some problems. They are there at 7:00 a.m. but the recording says they are not. I'm glad I don't work there. She was very nice and so was I. (Kill them with kindness.) But I let her know it is irritating not to be able to reach them after their error.

It's not the same reliable world I grew up in...lots of incompetent people in business anymore. I have a prob;em, with the modem I had to lease from Cox and now it has a problem and flashes continually. I reported it to them but they said if everything is still working they feel like "if it ain't broke don't fix it". It obviously "is" broke. They just don't want to give me another modem until it stops working altogether some time when I am in the middle of something.

I have a friend in Coffeyville that told me he never hires Millennials anymore after they regularly get a paycheck and then just don't show up for work after that.
