Florida Keys, (high 82, low 70)
Not much going on around here. Al seems to have picked up a summer cold, and we had to cancel our sunset celebration in Key West with Pam and Vic. We’re hoping to see them again before they leave. Perhaps at the Sunset Grill?
I am doing my best not to get sick, but living in such a small area, makes that very difficult. There is just no way to get away from all those germs. We find that Echinacea works well to stimulate the immune system and if caught early enough, can usually keep you from getting sick. I’ve been hitting the Echinacea hard (3-4 tablets, 3 times a day), and so far, so good. Al has been doing the same, trying to shorten the length of his cold. He hasn’t gotten any worse and I believe he’s feeling better. Now, I just need him to feel well enough to take the boat out.
Since Al retired fully last summer, we found that he rarely uses his cell phone. The only time we really use it, is to locate each other at Walmart. :) We still want to keep two phones, for the rare occasion we’re not together, but between the unwanted calls and the expense, we’re trying to find a better option.
He keeps getting robo calls from several numbers. Most of the time, if you answer, there is no one there, and sometimes it’s a computer. Rarely, there is a live person, but it does no good to tell them to take you off the calling list.
We’re thinking of canceling this old cell number, just to stop the unwanted calls.
Since he rarely uses his phone, and the $9.99 additional fee for that extra line actually costs $17 with all the taxes, we’re thinking of getting one of those prepaid phones. If I understand correctly, you can buy the phone and then just buy minutes when you need them. Anybody have one, or can give me any helpful information on these plans? I’m wondering if we should get an AT & T plan since my phone is Verizon? It might give us service in areas where there is no Verizon? Or if I should stay with Verizon since they have better coverage?
I had a nice little 22% discount on our Verizon plan that recently went away when I couldn’t prove I still worked at State Farm anymore. :(
We have rain coming tomorrow and Friday, so today might be the last good day to go out in the boat for awhile. I’m hoping Al will muster enough energy to take the boat out and anchor somewhere.
Wish me luck.
