Dial Up - Arrrrrgh

Once again I am subjected to dial-up for internet access as Bellsouth attempts to repair the phone system that has been ravaged by Hurricane Katrina. It is a pain for it means that I will not be able to post some photos that I promised John in Tennessee.

I shouldn't complain too much. At least I do have phone service. The phone system is so bad that a lot of people will not have phone service restored until January!!

Hurricane Katrina really did a number on the things many of us take for granted: running water, electricity, a home, phones, a car, roads, and the list goes on and on.

As bad as it was and still is, it is getting better day by day. The debris piled by the roads is being cleared at an astonishing rate. More and more roofs are being repaired. The Sonic, McDonalds, my bank, grocery stores, and other businesses are opening up.

As much as I hate dial up and sympathize, it does reassure us that you're feeling well enough to be annoyed.:)

Dial-up! Even the sound is annoying.
Still, better than no Internet at all I suppose.
