Wonderful neighbors.

Saturday, July 23, 2011

So our dear friends and neighbors that live in our rental house next door (where I have been going to do internet) hooked us up with a long cable from their house to ours and then Darryl (who is a techie) configured a wirless router to put in our casa. So we are hooked up to the internet for now until Telmex finally gets to us and gets us set up. We are so lucky to have such caring neighbors. Anyway, it feels great to be on line and able to check emails and such anytime I want.
Woo hoo!
I do hope all of you are doing just great.
Have a great week end.
Sallie

I get so frustrated when mine isn't working right. So happy you're connected and connected with such wonderful neighbors there too.

    Is...that...not...just...INCREDIBLE
?! So glad for you, Sallie, and what generous, kind neighbors! An ingenious solution, too.. I'm delighted you're back amongst us once again! There's been a bit of an echo in SparksVille, especially in Ciudad del Spark, México...;) ¡Vivan los vecinos de Sallie y su esposo! emoticon

Just another day without internet

Friday, July 22, 2011

Went and waited in line again to see if we can get our internet problem solved.....apparently they sold too many upgraded systems and here in Mexico there are not enough ports or something. So it might be a long time until we get internet....so until then I am commited to go to the neighbors each day for an hour or so to catch up with sparks and visit with you all.

Husband is doing better...yeah.

Hope all of you are doing great and not too hot. We had another perfect weather day....around 75 and bright and real blue skies today.
Sallie

    Bless your heart, Sallie - I get soooo antsy when we're without internet for as few as 2-3 days! I'm glad you can go next door to Gail's and stay in touch with us - thank you! Glad, too, that your husband's on the mend and feeling better. What delicious weather you're having down there! Up here in VA, it was close to 100° today with brutal, brutal humidity and afternoon rainstorms. The heat is really taxing our area, and I've been enjoying the nice, brand-new A/C we had installed. The old system would've crapped out in this much heat :) Stay well, in the meantime, and here's hoping for a wait that won't prove to be so long for your internet!

Fortunately you have access with your neighbor. Hope "a long time" is actually shorter than it sounds!
Good news regarding your hubby.

Still no internet...grrr

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Plus my honey is not feeling too well. He has a huge lump on the side of his face that is very painful...so we took him to a doctor down here and he thinks he has a ear infection and infected lump glands. Ouch! He got a shot and has lots of other meds to take. Hopefully they will kick in and he will be feeling somewhat better tomorrow. I so worry about him. I am not used to him being sick, in fact aside from his knee surgery, I have never been to a doctor with him. He is just never sick.

So I am still using the neighbors internet to do my sparks. But I sure am loyal.....got to get those sparks points so I take my computer next door.

Well got to go get dressed and go to a memorial service tonight for a dear Mexican couple who just lost their teenage daughter. She hasn't been doing well for like a year since she crashed her 4 wheeler. Wasn't wearing a helmet as it is not required here in Mexico. Just so sad. But I will go and at least pay my respect to the family.

Hope all my sparks buddies are doing great. Sorry if I do not post on your blogs much but I just can't follow things as closely now without internet. Perhaps tomorrow.
Sallie

    Smooth and swift healing for your honey - that sounds so painful, Sallie! And I love your determination - using the next-door internet while waiting for yours to come back :) I'm so sorry about your friends who lost their daughter - how tragic! It's always especially painful when a parent loses a child... Stay strong and stay well.

Too much fun at the festival

Not sure if you all will pick this up but this is my girlfriend and I waiting for the ride to begin. We sure were being silly. Nice when you have a friend you can be silly with.

Been without the internet now for 24 hours so I am at the neighbord (same friend who lives in our rental house next door and the one in this video) catching up on sparks. I went and made a report to Telmex. Not sure when they will get around to fixing it.....after all it is Mexico and things do move slower down here. And you don't have an option of switching providers as there is only one provider, Telmex. And the guy who owns Telmex is the richest man in the world. you would think they could get it fix................oh well....it's exercise for me to carry the computer next door. I will survive!
Hope all my sparks buddies are doing great.
Sallie
