2019.11.17 -- HELLO, INTERNET, MY OLD FRIEND

First off, if you happened to zoom in on the Corrigan's Lookout picture from the last post, I apologize.  The picture has been edited.

We have internet at home again.  Our cable company officially pulled out of Mercer the end of last month.  We had actually lost our connection two months ago, and since they were closing up shop, they decided not to fix it.  There is a fixed-wireless company in the area that took over the cable company's antenna-tower in town, but the water-tower hill is between us, so their signal doesn't reach us.  For the near future, I have a kludgy system that surprisingly works better than the TV antenna, and beats going to the library.

Let's see, we picked all the apples before the first frost last month...

I put them in the basement in front of a fan to dry out, then I packed them up in the root cellar.

Kelly has a couple lights we put on the dogs for walking now that it's dark twenty-eight hours a day...

She works at a weird place...

Speaking of deer, Kelly brought one home last week.  We have at least eight meals of tenderloin, and we ground up about twenty pounds of burger...

That's about a quarter.  Most of it will be used for Mexican Mondays. (I'm not even done typing up this post and some guy from Belgium already "faved" that picture.)

We had about three-to-four inches of wet snow on the ground, so I fired up the snow blower today for its inaugural run...

Kelly had bought me a Weber grill for Christmas last winter and the snow blower for my birthday last spring. Go figure.
