I Give Up

Try, though I might, I cannot download the pictures I wanted to accompany this post. I am seriously considering sitting in McDonald's parking lot ..........

But, then I remind myself that I am PAYING for Internet. Paying for something that only works intermittently. I may or may not be able to actually publish this upon completion. Might have to make several tries throughout the day. Sprint claims to be addressing the issue by upgrading the satellite. In the meantime, I am "roaming" on AT&T. To add insult to injury, Sprint decided to text us to let us know we were out of roaming minutes ......... at 2:30 AM.

Exciting things have been happening here at the kampground. The dog park is going up. It will be a rather large one, plenty of room for your canine friend to run and play. There was a clump of interesting trees I wanted to incorporate into the area for some shade. The first order of business was to clear the underbrush from the trees. Took two days and I took photos. There were some wicked vines choking the trees.

Some trees were removed to allow the others to grow. Discovered persimmon trees growing there. The foliage on the vines looked pretty innocuous, but since I was handling it I used my Fels Naptha soap when I showered. Knowing how poison vines are so attracted to me I went for the ounce of prevention. Didn't use the harsh soap on my face or hair. Perhaps I should have. I have a small patch of poison something on my forehead.


Small price to pay for the lovely area we created. If only I could rip away the vines that are interrupting my Internet service .........

Do they send up a new one, or just the parts?

Best visual in ages. Good luck.

As a Sprint customer, I feel your pain. At least we do not roam. That's because we get ZERO reception from AT&T. And not much better from Sprint, but both boys have unlimited internet for $10 per month by tethering their phones. So what if I can't make a phone call inside the house? They are happy with their fairly reliable, though somewhat slow, connection. It's enough to play computer games, but not enough to stream movies.

A dog park, what fantastic idea for campers,a dn your fur babies, too. I get so frustrated with my blog, too. I can't post more than one photo at a time anymore. How the heck do they upgrade a satellite...that sounds like hooey!

Kathy - I seriously wish I lived close by, I could help with your internet problem. I wish you luck, remind them this isn't a best effort service, it's a business one and they are costing you money. ;)
