Monday, Monday

Not as hot or humid today, but still unpleasant. No call or IP address from Verizon; I'm down to two days of papers, although one is Sunday.

I've ordered a new GFCI outlet because the idiot grounds company plugged something like a weed whacker into my other porch plug and blew the outlet.

It's actually from a company using Amazon as a middleman, and I checked the company's website and the price & shipping is cheaper from Amazon than directly from them. Odd.

Very cute pictures & story of orphaned hedgehog babies in the UK who have taken a cleaning brush as their mum.
