Can you believe my Internet connection is down?! Hub was up late last night trying to fix it, but it's no use. The router has finally given up and we need to get a new one. So I'm using his laptop for now. I don't like using the laptop for several reasons. The screen is small and it's difficult to have many windows open at once. Also, all of my passwords and settings are saved onto my computer. Now I might actually be expected to remember something! The nice thing about the laptop is that the keys are small so I have a good excuse for all my typos ;) But also, this a Japanese laptop. The keys have Japanese symbols on them and again, I'm forced to remember where certain symbols are on a regular keyboard. The down Internet connection is also my excuse for not writing last night. That and the fact that there was a car fire on the street behind my house. I was busy watching the flames and firefighters from my kitchen window.
I was helping my son with his homework at the kitchen table. When I looked out the window, I could see small flames under a parked pick up truck on the street behind our house. In less than a minute the whole truck was on fire. We heard the sirens and the fire truck pulled up. The fire was out quickly and no one was hurt. Once the fire was out and the firefighters pulled out clipboards and pens, they also took off their jackets and showed off their suspenders. I wish I had some binoculars then! ;)
