Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!

I had a weird day yesterday - well, weird evening! Brock and I were here in our wind-down mode. It was shortly after 7:00; he showers at 7:30. DH was at a meeting on the other side of our teeny tiny town. Suddenly - no flicker or anything - our power went off. But not just our power. There were no street lights or lights in any of the houses as far as I could see. It was DARK. I waited. Brock waited. Close to 7:30 I texted DH and asked if they had lost power. No, they still had power. Well shucks!

I tried to get Brock to just put on his jammies and go to bed, but being a man of routine... he refused to go to bed without a shower.

I might need to tell you, our weather was perfect! No storms, rain or anything!

DH got home at 8:45 - Brock and I still sitting in the dark, except for the flashlight's beam. DH held the flashlight in the bathroom while Brock showered.

Still no electricity, so finally at 9:45 I went to bed with my Kindle and book light and read until sleep won out.

DH drove around town to find out what the problem might be. Two blocks away something hit the transformer and it was being worked on. hmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

The lights came on in the middle of the night - DH got up and turned them off.

My life is rarely dull.

Congratulations, Shelly! Woo Hoo!!!

Lynn, I'm glad you got your phone fixed! I am one who LOVES change, but for some reason am hesitant about changing with the IOS7... will have to think on that a while. LOL!

Maggie, glad you didn't have to take your kitty back to the vet!

Maxine, thinking of you! Hugs!!!

Darlene... keeping you in my thoughts/prayers. Packing up your stamping stuff sounds rough to me. No advice, really, but will pray that solutions are found that will not require that in your future.

Waving at all the Addicts!
