Helter Swelter IV [Jun. 20th, 2017|02:58 pm]
My Internets connection has been utter crap today. Nothing to do with the Internet itself, I think, but with that AT&T cable from my house to the utility pole. The one the squirrels like to munch. The heat probably has something to do with it, too. It's miserable, but the web site is saying the high has not yet been reached. It's only 95 degrees, heading for 103. But maybe we'll get lucky and they'll have to lower the estimate.

At least today is the summer solstice, so the weather has sort of an excuse for being so obnoxious. AT&T has no excuse, though. They've known for a long time that the cable needs to be replaced, but they haven't done it. I hope they get around to it before I die of heat stroke.

I'm going to post this as soon as the Internet reconnects, and then go watch television. No troubles with the Comcast cable yet. I wonder why the squirrels don't eat that cable?

Poor California. I keep hearing tales of awful heat and suffering. They predicted it'd be hot here too, and it may get that way eventually. I wish the Chinese would stop with the climate change hoax!

Haven't been on LJ in a while. How's Portia?

Portia has been staying outdoors lately. She bolted through the door one afternoon a couple of weeks ago, and though she's come back in a few times since then, she has soon wanted back out and has made a nuisance of herself until I let her go.

One of the backyard feral cats has adjusted to her, but the other is afraid of her (he's way bigger than her, too) and now avoids the place, sneaking back to eat quickly when she is not watching. She is delighted at his fear of her and gives chase every time she sees him.

One of the indoor feral cats misses her, as she used to groom him once in a while, though she found him annoying and always ended up nipping his ear when she'd had enough of him. He still misses her, though, and starts pestering her the minute he finds that she has come indoors.

Interesting that she suddenly wanted out! I'm glad she's enjoying herself, though it sounds like she's the dominant type. ;)
