The explanation was that if they ordered in a supply, they might not sell them for an extended period and this type of battery would not hold a charge.
How about ordering just one for me? Nope, they don't do that either. Very strange customer service.
Maybe they just figure that when the battery finally fails, you will be in the market for a new phone. He didn't mention that option, however.
I'm not blaming the employee. He was helpful and did sell us a "refurbished" battery that is guaranteed for thirty days.
I guess we'll be searching Radio Shack or checking Wichita stores.

In other words, conditions are IFR for planes and drive very carefully for automobiles.
The forecast for today was sixty-four. It's now forty-three. The sixty-four has been pushed back to Tuesday.

It was very tasty!

There is a new Ritz cracker. Very tasty. Individually wrapped. How lazy do we have to be to let the Ritz people put the cheese on our crackers?
I guess this has been going on for a long time. Peanut butter on crackers; oreos have frosting. . . these both come "ready made."
On the wrapper under the words, Garlic Herb, is the following statement: Natural flavor with other natural flavors. What does that mean?
BTW, they are good!

Yesterday L. worked in the yard, cleaning up leaves and trimming stuff. I walked around and watched.
This morning was a kaffeeklatch with three friends. A great way to start the week!
We're all waiting for more days in the 70 range.

This small storefront on West B Ave. in Hutchinson has home made types of bread and sugary goodies.
The bakery has been there for a year but I had not known about it until an article in the paper mentioned they were adding bread to the sweet rolls.
This is egg bread and weighs heavy in the sack! Delicious with some butter or jelly.

I have nothing going on here except the weather is wonderful.
This is part of a wall at the Dallas Art Museum. We've been thinking about the arts in Kansas since our new governor decided to abolish the commission for the arts and combine it with another entity. Today a committee voted that down but there is still a chance he might get his way.
There are so many other ways to save money and to raise money that this idea just stinks.

It all goes along with time, wrinkles and aging. Maybe hats with veils will come back. I could start a trend! But definitely, no plastic surgery is in my future....

I wasn't due for this monthly treatment until Thursday morning. The weather forecast is for 6" of snow on the ground by then. I tried to call the pod where this is done and no answer for almost an hour. Soooo we just drove out there and I told them I was wondering if they could get me in earlier. Great news - two patients had cancelled today! I got in at 1:00 and out at 4:15. Those nurses are the greatest. Friendly, efficient, and full of good humor.
BTW, this "stuff" is working. The count it is trying to raise went from 400 to 900 in just under a year.
Optimum is 700-1600 so I'm in the good range.
It has to do with the immune system but I'm still not sure what they are counting.

He left to run an errand and I ran (not literally) to the kitchen to fix a relish plate for the Big Game. Carrots, celery with cream cheese and for me celery with peanut butter.) Carefully covering the plate with foil, I slipped into the MEAT drawer, thinking, he'll never see it there. All that meat is for breakfast which was over. . . today just doughnuts and coffee.
So as soon as he returned and went for a drink, he opened the MEAT drawer, pulled out the aluminum covered plate saying, "This is probably something that needs to be thrown away." I don't know what he thought when he saw my carefully prepared veggie tray, but I know what I thought when he said it should probably be thrown out.
Happy Super Bowl Day.

Now, if we could get the owners of the next building to the north to tear off that aluminum siding that was so popular in the 1970's, the block would look almost back to the original. (Click to enlarge and see the detail.)

I am the one holding up an acorn or SOMEthing third from the right. My cousin, Marcheta, is to my left and friend, Dana next to her near the Red Cross flag. This was at Camp Fairchild, west of Hutchinson on Cow Creek. Dana's mother, Cecil is the woman on the left, the co-leader. Lots of fun in the summer time with tents even!

This was chicken fried steak (top) and vereneke (bottom) Friday evening. A rare, delicious, and not too healthy treat.
This morning I was awake at 4:30 and in the kitchen by 5:30. The crockpot is full of stew meat, carrots, potatoes, onions, celery, V-8 juice, beef bouillon, bay leaves, and some spices. Lunch is at 1:30. With the wind chill at -11, I don't expect any guests. The schools are all closed. We didn't get much snow after the small amount of ice yesterday. Serious beginning for February!
