Thanks very much, Kathy! The day at work went pretty well, thanks! The back pain has moderated and the neck has not been a problem the last couple of days. Lots of leg fatigue today from last night's walk in the pool. Hope you got through your crunch okay!

Have call Cox, the living room & bedroom TVs are not receiving the data signal and the cable box says bypass.

At least the kitchen set works.

To: left that other site

Good morning, ML...((HUGS))...did ya have a busy Wednesday?

Mine was intense...lots of corrections, and VERY late, “can you get my direct deposit paperwork done so I can have my check deposited on Friday”. 1:45p and deadline is 2p. Made it, just barely, and only because he was a really nice guy.

Happy Thursday...have a good one.
