Happy 50th Birthday Annie!

Happy 50th Birthday Annie. Hope you had great day.

John off today. :) After John got home this morning and sat down to enjoy his breakfast and watch the news….guess what???? The satellite was not working…….SURPRISE SURPRISE SURPRISE!!!!! We have had Dish Network all of three weeks and it has not been a good three weeks. John spent more than a hour on the phone with them and finally got it working.

After lunch John and I drove over to Bob and Marcy’s and John replaced the pressure relief valve on their hot water heater. Then John went on to the Internal Revenue Service to make sure he had the correct documentation and verify the power of attorney for signing Mom Hatch’s tax return (you know how the feds are). He arrived there around 2:15 p.m. had to take a number and waited 45 minutes. Finally he was called but was presented with another form to fill out, which the representative could not answer his questions without getting assistance from someone else. What a surprise!! In the end, after almost three hours, John is told he doesn’t need that form after all. This is our tax money at work!!!!

I met up with Annie, Kay and Amy for dinner and to purchase supplies for Annie’s party on Saturday. The plan was to call John and he would meet us for dinner. Of course, that did not happen thanks to the IRS. He did not leave there until after 5:30 p.m. You know he was not a happy camper. On his way back into town he stopped at Outback Steakhouse to eat and then on to Bob and Marcy’s to wait for me.

We finally arrive back at the camper around 8:30 p.m. and John picks up the remote, presses the button and guess what????? It DOES NOT WORK AGAIN!!!!! He gets back on the phone with Dish Network and spoke to at least three people, all of whom were not much help. He finally spoke to an English speaking human who directed him to the correct division to handle our problem. They are closed by now so he will have to call in the morning. How much fun can a person have in one day?

Remember to laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
