Hounds Supervise Tree Company

I had called back in November to have the top rated tree company in the area take down the Bradford Pear tree too close to the house before storms would blow heavy limbs on my house. It had been cut before from damage in the middle of the tree prior to me buying the house. They are so busy they said they could not get to me until February or March. One of the crew told me today when I ask, they work 50 hour weeks through the winter. As you see when the large truck with the bucket pulled into the driveway, Henry and Watson were ready to supervise from the back and side yard fence.

News And Lots Of Photos

There is going to be some old fashion rambling in this post today. It was something I would do more of in the past. I can only blame it on the cold weather we are experiencing and remembering cold winter days a few years ago when I would take off rambling when writing a blog post. There is going to be a lot of hound photos along with the dog on this post, as well as some Verizon updates and some other topics that seem to get attention of the news. So grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy.

Verizon Update & Hounds Playing

Things have been moving along as usual. Things are being finalized with things I have have been waiting on so that is good. As of a couple of minutes ago my Verizon problem is almost completed, so close but will need to wait a few more days to receive the missing refund. I will tell the update in detail at the end of this post for those that are interested. Snow forecasted for Saturday so the hounds, the dog and I are getting hunkered down for the weekend. Netflix will be a life saver it looks like. Probably will not be more than an inch of snow.  LOL

Verizon Issue Turns Into Nightmare

Do you remember that Verizon story I told you in December. If not, it was in this post

Well it has turned into a nightmare of "systematic adjustments", computer generated. That is what the Verizon rep I talked to yesterday on the phone could not understand why or what was going on. So let me back up and catch you up on what has taken place since that post.

Hmmmm looking back I see I left you with my November 30th call to Verizon where the rep said I would receive my refund for days not used in the next 10-14 days. In the past when I canceled Verizon in 2020 to get a better bundle deal with ATT/DirecTV, the transfer was very smooth. Verizon sent me a Final Bill along with a refund check in the mail for the days I had paid for in advance but had not used. So they are capable but evidently not this time.

Watson's First Snow

Watson's day started at 19° and no snow. Where was it? The forecast was for 1" to 3", with snow between daybreak and 11am. Henry and Walter experienced snow last year in Sierra Vista. The only difference is that snow would be gone within two hours after it stopped. This snow will be here longer but the rain this weekend will wash away any snow that is left. Like all the other hounds I have had, most likely the snow would energize him and of course since he eats everything, he will try to eat it.

Hounds And Dog Like Cold Weather

I made a change from 720 to 1080 on the video settings. I have no idea how this loads on a tablet or phone, so if the larger file is a problem for you to see this video make a comment below and I will reload I deleted the 1080 video and reloaded the smaller 720 before I published this post. the short 15 second video of them playing on a day when it was 72° in the month of December. In fact it was that warm on Christmas Day but past blog posts show it was also that warm in Southern Indiana on Christmas Day in 2017.
