P.S.
Just one more thing I have to share with you is I am having one of the “Real Housewives” days, but not like on television, but  real  “reality”.
We are having another power outage.  There was a 6-hour outage Monday afternoon.  It was 107.  Today, we are having another.  It began at 3 AM and is still out at 2 PM.  Our side of the alleyway is without power while the other side has power.  Workers tell me they have no idea when it will be back on because they can’t find the problem.  We have a very long extension cord running from the house behind us inro  back window of our house  to give me power for my computer and another from the internet box in the garage to the same power strip to get internet service. 


 Let’s Party!
